My kids tend to learn some lessons the hard way .. oh hell … who am I kidding? They tend to learn ALL lessons the hard way, for example: A few months ago Beth (younger twin child) let Rachel (oldest girl child “borrow” her straightener). Do you see where this is going … Derek and I sure did.
I’ve told Beth seeeeeeeeeeeeveral times to get it back, mostly because I’m tired of buying my kids things that don’t end up staying at our house AND because I knew that the twins would end up using mine. For those of you who don’t have teenagers yet, someday you will understand why I don’t let my kids “borrow” my stuff (the words lost, stolen, and broken come to mind … sometimes all three). Well Beth hasn’t gotten the straightener back and this morning I caught her in the bathroom using mine. So when I left for work this morning … I brought it with me.
Does this make me a crazy bitch and a horrible mother? probably … but I’ll be a crazy bitch and a horrible mother WITH STRAIGHT HAIR !!! Now I get to carry around a straightener wherever I go … kind of like a pet rock … and only slightly more dangerous.
