Fun Friday!

Trelise wasn't happy about going to creche this morning. Not happy at all. She voiced her opinion quite vocally in the house and was put out when we all piled into the car on our merry way.

From the back seat I hear "I don't like you Mummy", "I like Daddy" - I of course ignored this one. so she carried on "I don't like you Mummy, I like Daddy, Carlos, Hazel, Ruby, Lisa, Gucci - not you Mummy" My child is brutal - I thought throwing the neighbors dog in as a favored person was a nice touch!

So I went shopping to heal my broken heart. To be honest I was already heading to the big red shed for a spot of retail therapy. I took along Nik who very kindly guided my clothes choices. I need help. The whole 80's inspired thing makes me feel like I'm dressed in costumes and I don't quite get it. I'm also belt challenged. Anyway I've brought a number of things so it means I can get rid of a number of ill fitting things I'm currently wearing. That's got to be good.

Then I took the car for a warrent and we failed. :( I knew I'd fail on tyres and I was right but now I've got some sort of strut problem. I'm not looking forward to loosing my car to the mechanic's to get it fixed. Will mean that I'm stuck roaming around Wellington with the bubba's waiting and waiting for our chariot to be fixed. It will likely take all day and knowing Wellington's weather it will be cold, windy and rainy!

I know how it feels to hae a child say this to you. It hurts me to hear it. I was told I was "not a good mommy" by my son one night after I returned from Walmart without any star wars figures for him. To be totally honest when I was there I did look. I did not buy any b/c he has so many and I did not know who he has and who he needs. After hearing him say that though I really realized that my kids are blessed beyond belief with toys and stuff and I am glad I came home with nothing. It did hurt my feelings though. I try so hard for these kids to make them happy.
I hope you have a great weekend!

Oie that sounds like no fun. I have a little brother who would do that when he was younger, to me, so it wasn't as bad as if it was to mom, thoug he did that too, and I would always jsut tell myself he doesn't REALLY mean it, he's just angry and can't express it properly. Hmmmph, and if he pulled out hte "hate" word, which he did, I would think he didn't know what it meant, which I doubt he really did.

I know the first time one of my girls does that I'll probably be quite upset. But, I guess it's part of motherhood. I don't believe I ever said "i dont' like you daddy" mostly because DADDY never really disciplined us. He was the "fun" one...

A new pair of shoes never hurt anyone! And, for me, they actually enhance my mood! So if your retail therapy didn't include a new pair of cute and insanely unnecessary foot coverings, then run right out there and buy a pair! Suddenly, the car, kid and weather problems won't seem nearly as daunting. Trust me...I know this routine well. :)
