Come Again????

You remember that show that was named "Kids say the darnedest thing"?

Well, that's been my life for the past few days.....

For example.....

Girl Child was so excited that she had raised her grade in algebra that she actually said this very thing......
"MOM, I RAISED MY MATH GRADE A WHOLE POINT"......
ME: "WOW SWEETIE, WHAT IS YOUR GRADE NOW"?
HER: "IT WENT FROM A 89.8 TO A .....wait for it.......89.9"
ME: SILENCE......FOR A SECOND, THEN " UM, SWEETIE. THAT'S NOT A WHOLE POINT....A  WHOLE POINT WOULD HAVE BEEN IF YOU TOOK YOUR GRADE FROM 89 TO 90."
HER: "WHAT EVER"
off she walks in a huff......

Things 1,2, and 3 had "Technology day" at school, where for a dollar they can bring in electronic items, or card games and such.....and the money goes to a good cause.....
So, I send Thing 1 with his DS, Thing 2 with Yahtzee on the go, and Thing 3 a pack of cards......

Well was I in for it when they got off the bus......
See their friends brought in IPODS, IPADS, Cell Phones, Computer Tablets and so on and so forth.....
So when the THINGS got off the bus, I hear about how nobody wanted to play with the things that they brought, and how they made fun of them for not having any of the THINGS (that a snobbish girl deemed necessary) that the popular kids have........
So I asked the THINGS how many brothers and sisters did these mean kids have and the average answer was 1....
That's when I pointed out that we have 7 kids, and even if we were loaded that there was no chance in H*LL that they would get IPADS and such.....
I mean these are the same kids that I can't trust with picking up their own dirty laundry....
Anyway, after I pointed out about the whole we have 7 kids thing......
THING 1 said, and I quote " Well, I  didn't tell you to have so many kids"..................
Out of the mouth of Babes...
I could have chocked him........

And on to GirlChild again, she runs cross country......I have them get physicals in the summer (and yes, I am brave enough to have all the kids yearly check up on the same day) and turn them in as soon as school starts, or if the sport starts early, then I hand it to the coach......OK, so fast forward to today and I get a note, that they have MISPLACED her physical....each coach remembers seeing it.....but would I mind going and getting another one....... HUH? It ain't my fault that you lost it.......and don't they know that insurance companies don't pay but for one physical a year? Or that they charge for filling out duplicate forms.?????
They tell me this on Friday afternoon....and say she can't compete in the first meet on Monday.....
I gotta mind to go tell them just what I think.........but I'm afraid officer Friendly would have to escort me out....

When are these people gonna learn that I am NOT a new mom, nor am I a complete idiot.....and that I will do EVERY-THING for my kids, even get ugly, loud, or straight up Alabama Country which sound a lot like something like " OH HELL NO"........That's when you outta run, cause it's gonna get crazy up in here.....

Whew, I'm glad I got that off my chest.......Hope you don't mind me ranting and raving..........I hope you find it funny.......or at least a little pleasing to you.....
If not, I can always go Granny Rice on ya...... and that, My Friends is a WHOLE lot scarier than hearing me say "OH HELL NO".........

One Redneck Mom Pissed,
J
or as my friends call me: the little stick of dynamite that could......
