So I am literally writing this sat on the landing having to police my three unruly children, that, despite the fact they are 7 and 3 (twins) are determined to stay up and play schools till the wee small hours. Well ‘not on my watch sonny Jim’, I tells ya.
This is so hard as I try to be a kind and fair father, but when it gets to this time and they are being cheeky (nice way of saying little sh**s) all I want to do is scream at the top of my lungs and tear out my eyes. Is that normal?…………………. yea probs.
How does this work, I thought that when they got to this age I would be able to talk and negotiate with them, little did I know that the little sods would have the audacity to say NO.
Well they won’t get the better of me, I’m a survivor and the king of my own Kingdom, I won’t be told what to do by the smaller people (although it does seem to have gone quiet so I am typing very slowly in case I wake said smaller folk).
I hope that this phase passes by soon, I really do. All that keeps swimming round in my head is the U2 Mantra, “It’s just a moment , this time will pass”, wish it would get a bloody move on though.
Oh well, any other sympathetic dads out there that want to advise me or just fell my pain please do, love to hear from you.
Dads supporting dads.
Dad on Dad action……. wait err no, ignore that and please don’t google it (chuckling to myself like Daddy Pig)
See you soon folk and don’t let the Bastards grind you down.
