I do this every so often... blow off steam about my kids...
well... we had a talk with them at the beginning of the week and said, "you need to start being more responsible. your room has been horrible lately, and from now on, we aren't going to keep getting on to you about cleaning it. if it's not clean come Friday, then you just won't be allowed to go to grandma and grandpa's house for the weekend..."
Well, here it is Friday. They don't get home until 4, my mom gets off work at 5, and I meet her at 6 (which means I have to leave by 5:20). Their room is HORRIBLE! I honestly feel I should have just nagged them all week... I know I'm going to hear lots of griping tonight, but we gave them fair warning!! ugh.....
OK... that's all... rant about the messy room is over.
I don't understand why kids want to have a messy room. That's the beauty of being a step-parent, especially when the kids don't live with us. They aren't here long enough to make a mess, they don't have enough stuff here to make a mess, and they wouldn't DARE make a mess and piss off their evil stepmother. DH's kids are afraid of me and that's the way I like it.
Sorry, I don't have any advice about the girls' room. Other than throwing everything out. I'm a bit of an extremist.
It's okay... he isn't always the nicest... I'm used to it... usually.[/b]
Kim, I feel bad when you talk about how it is at your house. I hope there are some good times when you don't have to walk around on eggshells. You deserve to be happy and I'm always afraid you don't get many opportunities to be happy. PM me anytime if you need to talk or vent.
