Look, my kids aren’t little angels, dressed in white, being polite all the time. Seen and not heard. Perfect. No, not be a 100 miles.
However, they are over-all good kids. They do their best to be nice. To respect others. To respect what they have. They are
mostly nice with each other.
Saturday night though….that night I got a taste of what life could be like.
We had friends over. Like we do every weekend. Their two kids play along very nicely with our kids. No fighting, mostly being proper. We hardly have to talk to them about behaving badly.
Then throw one naughty hyperactive child into that mix and they turn into monsters!!!
I would love to say that my kids weren’t involved at all. However, that would make me sound like the mom who won’t accept that her kids can be naughty too and it won’t be completely right. At least my kids weren’t breaking toys though.
They were loud. As in shouting at each other loud.
Two of the other kids, were throwing toys against the wall. Breaking them. Not their things!? Don’t break other people’s stuff! We do have a playroom, where the boys do kick ball and throw rugby balls and play tennis against the wall. That they have done since they were young and is totally okay with us.
But last night the other kids, were actually throwing toys …cars, planes …. toys, against the walls!!! While my kids weren’t but they were there and didn’t stop it and I was so upset.
Granted they may have tried but they should have come to tell me.
The one girl thought it might just be a good idea to use the couches as a trampoline and when that didn’t work good enough, she tried out Zander’s boat that he uses on the pool.
I feel like getting all the kids back in my house and make them pay for all the broken toys
I’m so not used to kids acting that way. I can’t believe that ONE extra kid, can cause that much chaos. Influence the other kids so much.
