why did i get her this game again?

10yo, in lieu of reading on her own, chose to read to me from some sort of  minecraft handbook.  i now know more than i ever – EVER – wanted to about zombie pigmen and the difference between wither skeletons and withers (hint:  number of heads). i’m seriously rethinking the whole kindle for the kids things. *headdesk*

seriously, single mother of three here *sigh*

daddy and kids making a ton of noise in the other room.

me [looking at clock]:  it’s past time to get ready for bed!!  let’s go!

10yo [skipping into the room]:  sorry, mama.  daddy was teaching me how to shoot off people’s heads. (playing a weird, creepy xbox game, not IRL people)

me:……so glad daddy is teaching you the important things in life.  *sigh*

seriously???

does anyone else have a child who LITERALLY can take 15 minutes to put a pair of sneakers and socks on????  and i’m not talking about just sitting there for 15 minutes not doing anything (though she has done that a ton of times too).  she has to roll up pants/leggings, wiggle her toes into the socks, adjust the line on the socks so it is just right, …..

 

ARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH
