Tantrums of Different Sorts


I can't believe what taking off a couple days does for the endurance. I really had to push to squeak out a mile to the field. The run home wasn't much better, but I did it. The Boy's team won tonight in their regular league tournament. I think they play again tomorrow. Peanut Butter was in rare form by the end of the game. She was trying to run around with one of my shopping bags on her head. When I took it from her it was full on tantrum and she never really recovered. J said this is what happens when she's up at 6 am. She could use a bath, but I don't even want to fight that battle, but I do and clean her up as best I can as sha screams for mercy. For some reason she is now terrified of taking a bath. I did pull out the kiddie pool I found on clearance last year. It was 4 dollars well spent. It took awhile, but she actually had a pretty good time playing.
Can I bore you with another reason I will be glad the baseball season is almost over. I am sick to death of battle of the ex's. I understand your husband had an affair THREE years ago. I gave your props when you called his girlfriend a F#%ing Wh0re three years ago, albeit totally wrong place. It shouldn't have taken place after your kid's baseball game, but you did take it away from the field for a bit. Year two, I and everyone else in the stands understand you are bitter we get it, but the middle of games really isn't the place to be harping on the woman, he is obviously still with her and now they practically make out in the stands to rub it in your face, because they know it gets a rise out of you. I don't know which is worse to watch at this point. Year three, you have moved on, remarried, your husband is still with the other woman, and appear happy, because now it is a contest on who is more lovey dovey in the stands. Truly gag worthy. Even after you have remarried and say you are much happier now than you ever were with your ex, you still have to call her a $lut in the middle of a freaking baseball game because her underwear happened to be showing. And then your mom, who I really do like, has to harp in too. I'm actually starting to feel for the other woman. Give it a rest already. You are doing these things in front of your kids. What kind of relationships do you want them to have.

That would be so hard, to have it constantly thrown in your face... but if she has remarried this lady needs to forgive this for her OWN sake. And for her kids, who are the true fall-out in this unfortunate situation.

That is ridiculous that she cannot get over it. There is a time and a place for everything and the ball field is probably not the place.

Reyna went thru a stage where she freaked when we put her in the bath. I don't know why or how she got over it, but she did. I would take a thing of soap in the pool and bath her out there. Hey, whatever works right? haha. : )

My wish for people who have had to go through a separation or a divorce is that they are able to look back at the situation and (1) be thankful for the time they had together and (2) be thankful that they have gone their separate ways, leaving the future open for possibility.

Yes, I live in a dream world . . . and it is always easier for me to find the upside in someone else's mess than it is for me to find it in my own.

Good luck getting back on the 'wagon' . . . I dread every Spring when the weather finally gets nice and I hit the path for the first time - ouch.

I agree with you totally. Even if she us hurt and angry, that is no place top air her emotions. Yikes! I would have to get up and move.

The kiddie pool looks like so much fun!! I have given my kids baths in the kiddie pool before! Whatever works! :)

She obviously isn't over anything. The kids shouldn't see anything like that.
