Spring break?

4 Apr

Maura’s watching My Little Pony.

In Spanish.

It’s like, hour 337 of it as well. Yes, I know, I could turn it off. But then she’ll get upset. And I just want some peace because yesterday was a day full of “Mom? Mom? Hey Mom! Mom? Mom! MOM! Hi Mom.”

I made the mistake of buying some Girl Scout Cookies off a friend. Apparently this year’s boxes were laced with crack because Maura’s been desperate for them. Or maybe she keeps going after them because her Easter candy sugar high is wearing off and she’s getting jittery. I’m trying to stay strong here, and not A) give in to her needs or B) binge eat all the cookies myself so she can’t have them.

Add to all that fun? I forgot to turn off my morning alarm. So after staying up late to finish reading a book, my alarm woke me up early.

And spring break is just getting started!

    I feel you. I’m on week #2 of spring break (because for some reason, kids around here need 2 weeks for fall break, 2 weeks for spring break, 2 weeks for Christmas/winter break, and only 8 weeks for summer). ::sigh::

    Spring break has just ended here (it is an Easter break), so now not the parents, who after all CAUSED their offspring and so SHOULD BEAR THAT BURDEN, but the public has to bear those kids again – yesterday in the bus to work there were a few teenagers – blocking the doorway, despite going 8 stations while only had 4 and wanted to get off some time … They behaved as if I was the nuisance, just because I wanted to leave the bus …
    Can’t parents keep their offspring to themselves? Kids, who needs them .. *grumbling* Not even their parents are happy having them around.
    Wait till Maura starts talking back in Spanish … 😉 That will be fun 😛

    Thomas the Tank engine in Spanish I always found to be far, far more easier to tune out than Thomas in English. Good luck with that!
