The arguing is Out. Of. Control. in our house. I can't stand it anymore. And I'm not even referring to the constant bickering between the kids.
Every time I say ANYTHING, someone argues with me.
It's mostly between me and Minnie. We're both so stubborn and always have to be right. My husband is so annoyed by our arguing at this point. He doesn't understand why I can't just let it go.
But I can't. Why? Because she is wrong, and I am RIGHT! Duh.
But seriously, why am I arguing with an (almost) 11 year old? Does it really matter if she thinks you don't have to go to college to become a lawyer? Or if she insists the library is open on Sundays?
It's a constant battle. And I think the key is to pick my battles because her attitude is growing as fast as she is. There are going to be important things to fight about over the next few years, I'm sure. So I guess I should just save my breath. I'm gonna need it.
But the worst part is that now Quiz is doing it too. He argues with me before he even hears all of what I'm saying. I actually had this argument with him:
"All of my friends are going to kindergarten with me."
"Yes, but there are two classes. So some will be in your class and some will be in the other class."
"No, I SAW them when we went there!" (the orientation)
"Yes, that was all the kindergartners, but there are two classes."
"No there isn't."
"Yes there is."
Really? I'm arguing with a 5 year old! Constantly actually. If I say the sky is blue, he'd say it's red. And I'd keep going until he agrees with me.
I think I need to embroider myself a little pillow that says "Pick your battles, Moron!" because I can't seem to remember.
