Mommm… Hey, Mommm… MOMMM!
If I hear one more whiny “Mommm,” I’m going to go insane.
I’ve had a little too much home time with the kids this week. We’re leaving for vacation tomorrow. So I figured a slow work week would be nice. I could ease into our vacation, pack a little each day, and be a little bit more prepared than usual.
Yet, I’m sitting here on the bed, among a pile of unfolded laundry, as an empty suitcase sits on the floor.
Anyway, back to the whining. It seems the whine-o-meter has hit an all-time high in our household. And it’s just the beginning of summer! As much as I’ve tried to keep them occupied, fed, and entertained this week, there always something they’re whining about.
I’ve tried reasoning with them. Threatening them with some sort of punishment or chore. Even mocking them. Nothing works.
I guess I should just sit back and enjoy the summer whine. Because these days will be gone before I know it, right? Please tell me they will!
