I wanted to write 'THINGS I thought today', but when I saw my typo I left it because I feel its more appropriate.
Moms don't always say the things we think Surprising isn't it, with all the yelling and direction we give? Instead of just keeping it to myself I though I would share with you the Thinks I thought but did not say.
While I was cleaning his room I could hear my oldest son down stairs tell my 2 yr old, "Get off me, I am not a horse." I thought 'Who would be able to tell? You live like an animal." And why was I cleaning my sons room? After 3 days of boys complaining, despite 2 loads of laundry, that they did not have anything to wear the Dh went in search of the problem - dirty clothes shoved under beds. Hence, why I thought they lived like animals.
My 7 yr old tipped the cookie sheet thereby sliding all the unbaked cookies off the cookie sheet and onto the window of the oven. I scrapped them up with a spatula and slapped them back onto the cookie sheet. When he asked if he could bake them that way I told him no. What I was thinking however was, "Sure, go ahead. I don't care if you eat cookies that were smooshed onto the window of the oven. As clean as I am sure it is what with Christmas having been like a week or 2 ago." And the reason I said no was because if I had said what I was thinking he wouldn't have cared they were nasty from all the whatever is on the window.
When my son came in my office to see me and subsequently farted I told him, "Dude, you don't come in here and stink it up." When what I was thinking was, 'Ack, I thought it was the dog. Good Lord what have you been eating?' The worst was when he denied it, the dog would have owned up to it. That I probably should have told him.
I told my 5 yr old to clean his room. He told me, "I am playing Zoo Tycoon." I told him he was playing zoo tycoon. He was done now. He murmured something unintelligible as he walked out of the room but in the hall I heard him clearly say, "Whats wrong with you woman?" I laughed. What I was thinking was, "Gosh he sounds just like his father." That I know I should have told him. He would have laughed too.
