Not A Fan Of OPK…….Other People’s Kids

I’m just not. I love my kids, my friends’ kids, but I draw the line there. Most kids annoy me, not all, but most. You see, I never wanted to have kids of my own, but then the teenager happened, and I liked her. Then I turned 30 and Lex happened, and I liked him, too. Then Lola happened, she’s pretty cool, I’ll keep her. But other people’s kids, well, I’d prefer to not get too close. I don’t know why I am this way. I don’t mean to be, I just am. I have a terrible time connecting with my bf’s kids. Doesn’t help that his daughter is terribly jealous of me and acts out every. single. time. she. comes. over! It’s exhausting. His son loves me though and gets my sense of humor. Just like his Dad. 🙂 One out of two ain’t bad. And honestly, if I can be honest here, I really don’t care if she likes me, she doesn’t have to. She just has to obey the rules and behave herself while she’s at our home. That may seem harsh to some people, but that is just the way I am. I’m not mean to OPK, I just keep my distance. Wow….it just dawned on me that I am going to be a terrible grandmother.

  • Nina,

    OMG!! I can totally relate to you on OPK!!! I have 3 kids of my own that I love unconditionally and hoping for a 4th soon…. But I draw the line their nieces and nephews are brats and get on my nerves. I am not one of those people that come up to strangers with cutes babies in stores… to be honest most of the time I don’t even notice the baby, it just happens I’m not trying to be rude…Most of my friends have not yet had any kids….I”m not sure I’d be any different around their kids… Good luck and I think about the grandmother things all the time… I’m just not a kid person!!!
