The daughter is in a mood.  By this I don’t mean she’s just throwing a tantrum, no that would be easy.

She’s seriously coming undone.

The girl is exhausted and doesn’t know how to handle herself.  We are on day 3 of a 5 day vacation and she officially is losing her shit. Not sure if it’s the time change or the change in location, but she isn’t adjusting well.  This girl is grumpy and determined at the same time, which is not good for us parents.

In a fit of rage she just screamed “I don’t want you as my parents.”

Okay.  As a mom I should be more upset about this; but I’m not.  I know she’s doing this to get a rise of us and it’s not going to happen.  I’m not going to give into this tiny terrorist.  Her screaming isn’t going to get to me because guess what?!?  She’s a smaller version of me.

I’ve already done this.

I know where her tantrums are going before she does.  Did I throw fits and expect results?  Yep.  If she only knew I’ve been there done that… poor girl is in for a surprise.  This mom is an experienced tantrum thrower who won’t give into these methods.  I wrote the book on these years ago.

I almost feel badly for her.  She will learn and we will all be better people from these experiences.  I do feel a little badly for the husband however, he has no clue what he’s in for during the teenage years.  (Let’s hope the son is more like the husband or we are all in for some rough years ahead!)

Pretty sure she doesn’t want new parents since we are pretty awesome.  Maybe I’ll drop her off at another family’s house for a night so she can appreciate us more… yes, that might need to be in order.
