I have two adorable girls, perhaps you would like them for your collection - they are driving me insane! They are right at the "mom, she did this" stage!!!!

I'll trade you my two boys for your girls. After going back to school for one day they closed to schol today because they are having problems with the heating. Just when I thought I had gotten rid of them. They go to a year round school and had been out since Dec 6 I was so looking forward to them going back.

Send them over, I could use the help shoveling my driveway, since my son won't help me!!!

My daughter has 3 girls, 2,5, and 6 she lives out of state from me but i talk to her often which is nearly impossible. I often hear such things while I'm trying to talk to her as "get that off her head!" and " I don't care what she did, she's a baby!"

My daughter often quotes from the "Bill Cosby Himself" stand-up
where Bill Cosby says "Parents arent interested in justice, they just want quiet." I should give you her phone # in case you were ever pondering that third one

:grin2: After growing up with three sisters, I thank God every morning for me having only sons.

January 3rd, 2003, 7:29pm
I'll take 'em when they turn 21.. ;)

Spyder......you devil you....:laugh:

If they shovel snow - can I borrow them???

I agree with Dekid. I grew up with 3 sisters also. I am thankful to have 2 boys. Mine are a 11 years apart and they funny to watch. Boys when they move out they come back to visit and sometimes for dinner. When daughters leave they move back in with husband and children lol.

I'll throw in Jesse and Layla for the same price. Ages 7 and 5. Layla (7) continuously pushes Jesse's (5) buttons until he is a mass of tears and then he bugs the crap out of her until she smacks him and he is once again reduced to tears or he gets mad and pulls her hair and she crys.
This goes on all day and especially while I'm on the phone with the mortgage company or cable compnay or some other non-personal call.
Sounds like a fun time to you? Now he's hystrical because Layla laughed at him because his shirt was on backwards. You would think someone had smacked his toe with a hammer the way he's wailing.
Oh and I'll throw the Tech Hubby in with them because he's upstairs sleeping and ignoring this whole deal while I'm pulling my hair out...

You all talk big, but I doubt you could go a month without your kids.

Last year I lost my stepdaughters in a split up, with only minimal contact since then. I have been missing them alot. I just had them for New Years, and it was fun. It is amazing how fast they grow up. Cherish every moment, even the bad ones. They will be gone to their own lives much too soon.

I think every one of us who are parents and/or grandparents recognize how precious the time with our babies are,and wouldn't give up a day.

Sometimes, though, they really can be exasperating, the same way we pushed our own parent's buttons.

So sorry for your loss, that must be terrible for you. I hope you are able to visit with them often

okay on the subject of trading kids.....lets see, i have a bunch here that i would be willing to trade starting with my identical 16 year old triplet daughters who are making me :smile3: :smile3: crazy and then to top it off i have three younger girls to even things out....i do the sweepstakes to give myself some well deserved time alone

January 4th, 2003, 3:52pm
i know y'all are kidding about trading your kids but as a grand pa to two little one i always say this to my son

" son you and your family are always welcome to stay here but ya gotta remeber those two lovely kids of yours and you gotta go home by 10 because i need my peace and quiet"

Oh man, I can relate to you! I had 3 teenage girls at the same time ( not triplets, but very close in age) that was a nightmare! and 3 younger kids a boy, and twins boy and a girl, and that was like diapers and tampax at the same time! Yikes! Or PMS or crying all the time!:eek:

I'll take any of those problems now. Wait till they move out and tell you they wrecked their car and have no way to get to work, and they don't have enough money to pay their rent and that means if you don't help them they will have to move back home. (please anything but that!!! :)) The little ones have little problems, the big ones have big problems. Wish mine were little again!! :laugh:

Cheers, Debra

Wish all mine were still little! Your right, little kids little problems, big kids bigger problems! Half of mine are in there 20's and the other half are under 11, much rather have them stay little, plus i know what I'm in for when the younger ones hit there teens, been there done that!:smile2:

January 24th, 2003, 5:15pm
I was told you can't sell kids on E bay. I wonder if you could make them a "gift with purchase" like they do at the fancy stores? If if works, they can have my son, too!

Ladies must I remind you of several things which could save your sanity???

1. Duct tape ( to tape the little angels to the wall)

2. Velcro ( reserved for velcroing them to the ceiling on special circumstances )

3. Earplugs ( no explanation needed)

4. Calgon ( once again no exp. needed)

5. play Lawrence Welk at full volume- ( this is not cool music to kids and they will do virtually anything to make it STOP!:laugh: )

6. Embarrass them really good by singing the most off key you can- black out a few teeth for good measure- and tell them if they DO NOT STOP WHAT THEY ARE DOING YOU WILL DO IT TO THEM IN FRONT OF FRIENDS!:laugh:

Please be warned I am only kidding !

But hey it sounded good didnt it?:laugh: Ok so maybe not .....:laugh: :laugh:


January 24th, 2003, 10:18pm
Okay Elaine. You are my hero now! Never would have thought about the Lawrence Welk music with my stepson who is grown now (boy was he a handful). I have two little ones and I'm putting that advice in the old memory bank to pull out at just the right time! Thanks! :smile2:

You are more than welcome actually it was my favorite aunt in the whole world- Aunt Jean who used to tell the family her secret for getting 3 kids and a hubby outside to do yard work was put on Lawrence Welk.....:laugh: My cousin , her son Anthony said if he EVER heard Tiny Bubbles again there would be HELL to pay:laugh: But hey she passed this to the family and I use it :laugh: You should see kids clearing out of the house to do yardwork :laugh: looks like Carl Lewis at the Olympics I think I could have a few Olympic runners on my hands..:laugh: I know I am rotten:laugh:

Some one told me many years ago, that with Children the days are long and the years are short.

I think that sums it all up.

My two finally grew up. Although they still fight, I tell them to settle it themselves.
Now it's my Grandchildren. I have two. A boy and a girl. I get the usual- "She's looking at me" "He's breathing on me" "She's on my side!!" "I called for the window first" And the ever popular--
"Are we there yet?'
I am taking the two of them to Florida next month in a little Ford Escort. Please pray for me.

February 4th, 2003, 10:23pm
I wish you all 5 more ...LOL :smile3:

February 4th, 2003, 10:24pm
Sorry.......I wouldn't trade my daughter (3 years old) for anything:grin5: She's a treasure!
But I'm NOT looking forward to puberty (I have three sisters) :(
