The things that drive me crazy about living with boys

November 18, 2014

There was a video on Buzzfeed the other day entitled “Weird Things That All Couples Fight About“. I have to say I LOLed my way through most of it as most of it was definitely SPOT on – including the passive aggressive comments the female makes (and that play out in my own head on a day to day basis).

However, for me, being the lone female in a family of boys, it’s not just the hubby that drives me mad on a consistent basis but my littlest boys as well.

Cereal Eating: UGH! Hubby has a way of double clanking his bowl before every bite of cereal in an almost OCD manner that drives me into an irrational state of rage. However, I would maybe make an exception if it was JT, or someone on my list 🙂

Dishes: Even thinking about dishes throws me into an irrational rage. I don’t like doing dishes and I hella don’t like picking up others dirty dishes. Worse yet, dirty dishes that are left in the sink unrinsed so that the pancake batter/spaghetti sauce/syrup/Kraft Dinner hardens like concrete. Cue the dish throwing rage.

Pee: I think that my boys sense of smell has evolved so that they don’t actually detect the scent of pee anymore. I swear that every single bathroom in my house smells like a parkade stairwell, and with many of those bathrooms having tile and/or wainscoting, that pee gets locked into some very difficult to clean places. Best excuse for poor aim heard thus far “I didn’t want to get my hands dirty mom so I didn’t hold it” – sigh.

Can’t find sh*t: Gah! Every day. Multiple times per day. From every boy in the family. They must have some sort of genetic mutation that doesn’t allow them to actually see objects that are literally in front of their face.

Um, honey do you know where my keys are?

So, I don’t think I am asking too much am I. Just find your sh*t, clean up your pee and your dishes and i’ll be one happy mama. Although I am not sure there is any cure for the cereal eating…..
