My step children have been home from college for Christmas vacation.  I am so ready for them to go back to school!
I didn’t mention my daughter’s because they are elsewhere.
I don’t like the attitudes of these kids lately. They are too into themselves. Thus, affecting my attitude!
It starts with the mess they make of the house. Leaving dishes and clothing all over, not to mention papers, books, and candy wrappers.
They don’t want to help get fire wood or start a fire so the house will be cozy. God forbid they go as far as rinsing a dish!
I know..they are kids.
But, where do you draw the line?
I took them Christmas shopping. They needed to buy each other’s gifts and it was two days before Christmas. Of course, the mall was the choice of all.
We looked and shopped and looked more. I got tired. I have ms and when I get tired that’s it!
I knew we were only half done. They boys had gone off on their own and my daughter and I were together.
She offered to go to the wheel chair rental and push me. I couldn’t let her do that though. She is anorexic and cannot afford to use her calories.
After a bit i decided that I was going to call Ryan and ask him to push me. He said no. After all he pushed me last year once after I had surgery on my knee. Apparently he has met his quota?
He asked his brother..he said no way.
Me being me kept struggling along, sitting every few minutes until everyone was happy.
I said something to my husband. He doesn’t agree with what they did, but has yet to say anything to them.
I am tired of attitudes!

    • Jomi,
      If those had been my kids (step or otherwise) they would have been looking for a ride home. How dare they! What gall!
      And when they finally came home they would have found themselves headed back to the airport or wherever.
      I can’t believe your husband has said nothing to them. Have you asked him why he has not had a talk with his kids?

    • I’m with Ingrid. I read your blog and I just couldn’t respond. The blatant disrespect of these kids. These young people are our nation’s future. What has happened to common courtesy, being polite, the golden rule for goodness’ sake? Remember do unto others? What is wrong with these people? I don’t mean any disrespect to your husband but, shame on him for allowing it. This kind of non response sends the message to these future adults that it’s ok to be jerks.

    • Thank you girls for once again validating my feelings.
      I am the kind of person that feels good when I know everyone is being taken care of.  This shows me that I need to start taking care of myself.  I told my husband that I am done taking care of them other than the basics.
