Military calling that is. Why you ask?
Thats simple. Every morning i sound exactly the same. Like a drill sergeant. Some moms can sound all peppy and happy trying to get their kids off to school. Not me. My blood pressure rises. I start yelling. Threatening to take the TV away. Its. Always. The. Same. We end up racing out the door, just barely making it to school on time.
“You’re gonna be late, c’mon!”
“Put your shoes on!”
“Why didn’t you brush your teeth yet?”
“I already told you to put your shoes on!”
After drop-off and i’m at home, it takes at least 30 minutes for my blood pressure to drop, I have to down at least 2 shots of Greygoose (to relax me), and a teaspoon of honey to sooth my sore throat from screaming. Then i park my buzzed ass on the couch and wait to do it all over again the next morning. From now on i should just start running it more like a bootcamp. Maybe then my drill sergeant ways will be justified.
If his shoes aren’t on after the first time i ask him…..20 pushups.
When i tell him to the turn the TV off and he doesn’t…..20 situps.
Yeah, i could see that happening and then all i’d hear would be his whinning and crying to be done. Why is it always a lose-lose situation? I’m gonna have to come up with some clever tactics or i’m gonna end up as that annoying, nagging, always-bitching mom who’s voice goes in her kids ears and out the other.
