    Re: The Kids Rant Thread

    For my first contribution, I would like to share a sample of work by my daughter, the artist.

    I would like to add that the most colorful pieces were done while I was not at home and at least those I can credit to my husband's watchful eye. Truth be told, though, I can't be upset with him about it - she's excellent about breaking crayons so she has tiny pieces to hide and color the walls with later.

    Lol, Rafe, that looks like Phee's "white walls are a sin against humanity" phase. Seriously, when we moved from our townhouse in IL (after living there 2 years), we didn't get our security deposit back--she'd decorated pretty much everything she could reach. Once we figured a place to hide the crayons, markers, pens, pencils, etc, that she couldn't find, she just moved on to my make-up and nail polish. Once that was hidden, she discovered that berries make a fine paint, and the paint on her blocks rub off if you gouge them into the wall.


    Sharkbait dropped the F-bomb in pre-K yesterday when he couldn't get something to work right. I had to spend 5 minutes explaining that dad had been on vacation and home for three weeks playing on the x-box while the kids were on vacation, and that is probably where he picked it up.

    Yeah, the 'terrible twos' weren't bad...in our house (and from most parents I've talked to) it starts at the end of two or early in the third year and lasts about 2 years. Perhaps they really started calling that so that you knew how long it would last, not when it would start, lol.

    And I agree with this being a mommy-war free zone. I think that shit is asinine.... AFAIC, if you feed, clothe, and shelter your kid and you love them and worry about what sort of human being they are going to become some day, I could really care less if you breast fed them or not.

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    YES to mommy war free zone, which is why i even created this thread. We all need to vent here and there and I feel we get judged enough as it is. It's just not necessary here too!

    Further more babehz is entering his terrible two phase, testing out every single button on me that he could possibly push. I have to stick him back in bed at least 10 times at night, and then again at 5 in the effing morning. He doesn't really listen anymore at all. I'm about ready to rip out my god damned hair. AND HE BEAKS EVERYTHING !!!!!!!!! and and and and -__________- fml

    Being a grand parent I am not allowed to say anything bad about the grand kids...it is a sacred rule that GP's get to enjoy the kids with no backlash because like that we vanish when they act up... Besides we already did our hard time raising their parents...

    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    I have decided that I no longer want to be an adult... If anyone needs me, I'll be in my blanket fort, coloring.

    Give them back full of Mountain Dew and chocolate. Paybacks are a bitch.

    Why do I get the feeling there's no special dry erase paint on those walls? Oy, what kids can do!
