Dadgitated’s First Post – Right Now or A Small Example Of What I’m Dealing With At Given Moment In Time

The above title took me about five minutes to peck out with my one available hand. The other hand is currently occupied holding a sleeping baby.

I was forced to stop typing three separate times; once to remind the other two children that the baby’s asleep and if they wake him up they may not see tomorrow, once to pretend to eat a toy car that my three-year old insisted was a piece of pie and once, and let me remind you I only have one hand, to help my seven-year old put his “spy watch”.

I remind my seven-year old that spies are quiet and the baby is asleep. He’s tells me about how ninjas are also quiet and how he can be a ninja spy or a spy ninja and ninjas were very quiet like spies and when will his brother be done watching his cartoons because he wants to play a game on the Wii and he wishes it wasn’t too hot for the playground today because he wants to play outside but it’s too hot… He has ADD. He isn’t medicated.

My three-old just informed his unmedicated older brother that he was done with cartoons and he can play a game now if he wants. As his older brother picks a game the three-year old (who from here on out will be refered to as “the middle child” or “demon spawn”) screams at the top of his lungs because “NO, NOT THAT GAME!”. He physically attacks his older brother.

Still not wanting to wake-up the sleeping baby in my arms, I try to get control of the situation with the most menacing whisper I can muster. It goes unheard. I try again. The baby is twitching.  “Boy’s!” A little louder. Still it goes unheard or unheeded.

“STOP IT! THE BABY IS SLEEPING!,” I shout. Demon spawn and the older one stop and look at me. So does the baby.

        You are welcome. I need to read more posts because I am pretty sure that I can relate to whatever it is you are going through. I love it when other people have to deal with what I have to deal with.

  2. I know the feeling. My older daughter saves her worst behaviour for when the baby’s sleeping on me, knowing I won’t do shit about it. Grrr. Eventually I figured out that it was worth waking the baby a few times to follow through with the discipline.
    Anyway, congrats on the blog from a random internet stranger!
