I'm irked that M1 seems hell bent on developing some personality quirk that makes it difficult for us to get through a day without a squabble. The latest, after playing dumb all this week, is a fear of the dark (or rather, our dimly lit kitchen) when asked to feed the pets.FKA Hordemama

Wait til the hypochondria sets in. We went through a "phase" when DS was 7-8.5 when there were fights and excuses about everything. Then at the beginning of this last summer he went back to being the golden child he had been before. Maybe it was because of his little brother.... maybe thats an excuse to try explaining why darling son turned into a monster for a while.
So heres to hoping yours gets through the phase faster than mine did.Homeschooling DS10, DS4.

I am annoyed every *single* day about having to ask "Did anyone feed the dog?" "Has the dog been fed yet?" "Whose job is it to feed the dog?"
I flipped out about 6 months ago and announced that I NEVER wanted to have to ask again, that feeding the dog is NOT my responsibility, and they need to figure it out. DH and the kids figured out a system of who would do it when, and mark it off on a little chart on the whiteboard. It doesn't work, though, because if the dog needs something, he ALWAYS comes to ME with his needy eyes and then I have to run around asking everyone "does the dog need food? Did anyone feed the dog today?" before I feed him, in case he HAS been fed and is just hoping for seconds.
I should probably just take over feeding the dog as my personal responsibility and off-load some other job onto the kids.

It is annoying to me that my husband snores all night, every night. It's like sleeping with a motor boat next to me. No wonder I never feel rested!

I'm annoyed that the herbal supplements I have taken for several years that really helps eliminate hot flashes, and other hormonal symptoms, are no longer available. I have one bottle left. My husband is concerned as well When I get irrationally angry, overly upset, etc. He reminds me it is time for my wild yam supplement. (and he is correct)7th grade (our fourth year homeschooling)
