to cancel the easter bunny's visit tomorrow
EndangeredSpecies · 23/04/2011 21:10
Long day thought I'd round it off with a bedtime story, a book the DCs have been looking forward to. Start reading and they're both turning round staring at a wall poster fidgeting etc. I ask them to stop and do they want to carry on reading. Yes yes please carry on they chirp. Two minutes later they carry on doing exactly what I'd asked them to stop doing.
A very small misdemeanour compared to what they're capable of, but after having fielded tantrums for most of the week, now I just cannot be arsed to hide the easter eggs for the treasure hunt around the house. AIBU?

Yes I probably am being ott. They don't know anything about the egg hunt.
DH is utterly clueless and would probably hide them all in the same place, or leave them on top of the tv, or eat them.
Have mellowed slightly now. Perhaps I'll start hiding some and eat the rest when I get bored.

agree you are being totally over the top there.
If you want them to sit still for a story and they don't, the natural consequence is that you stop reading - not cancelling easter!!
Sounds like things have maybe got on top of you leading to a major loss of perspective! Get yourself a break in some way if you can so that you can regain your equilibrium
and hope you all have a good day tomorrow [busmile]
