Does your kid do anything that annoys the crap out of you?

    My 8 year old constantly goes to bed wearing jeans (usually what she wore to school that day). I'm always telling her to change into pajama pants or sweats and she always tells me no and she's fine. It drives me crazy because to me sleeping in jeans is uncomfortable as hell. I know in the grand scheme of things wearing jeans to bed is no big deal and won't hurt her but it annoys the ever loving Crap out of me. So to make me feel better tell me things thatt your kids do that annoy you but aren't that big of a deal.

    My 11 year old daughter forgets to flush the toilet, yet my 2 year old flushes it constantly.
    Same 11 year old is constantly drumming on things or making other random noises.
    4 year old son and 2 year old play more with things that aren't theirs than things that are.
    17 year old daughter giggles. Constantly. Not her fault but still bugs me.

    My 3yo is awesome about going to the toilet. I literally cannot remember the last accident, and he always washes his hands. Except in public bathrooms he touches EVERYTHING! He will wash his hands and then stroke the edges of the sinks or sit on the floor inside the stall. Drives me fucking batty, it is disgusting!!! We have rules now, I wash his hands. Then I hold them until I've dried them and then he holds my hand walking out. If he leans out and rubs his hands all over the walls walking out I make him start again. Its so gross!

    DD when getting into bath ends up somehow keeping her panties in her jeans when she takes them off. No clue hoe she manages this! DS gets up at the crack of dawn just so he can play video games before school.

    Everyone is guilty of this, including me. Taking our socks off and. Leaving them bunched up.

    Dd8 talks incessantly. And she always has to be right or have the last word.

    Ds11 challenges everything I tell him to do. Take dog out.
    Can I finish this youtube video?
    brush teeth.
    I want a snack!
    Put pj's on.
    I'm watching a show!
    Go put your clothes away
    Can I do it tomorrow? I'm tired.

    My DS9 watches bits of movies obsessively. Might be an 8 second clip that he'll stim with. Most recently: 4 second clip from a classic Looney Toons feature, repeated over and over for thirty minutes (that was the length of his computer turn).

    My 8 year old DD does the exact same thing. She only wears pj's about half the time. She also refuses to sleep in her bed, only on top. But her bed gets destroyed anyway and needs to be still made in the morning.

    My Stbxh claimed that a friend of his went to sleep with jeans on . More than likely he passed out completely drunk !! And slept really oodly and since his pants were so freaking tight it cut the circulation off and he ended up having his leg cut off !! I highly doubt it happend , but the kids dad will not let anyone sleep in jeans !! If they fall asleep in them in the car or something , I have to take them off of the kid while they are asleep.

    @Thorne - most of the time he wears headphones and I have to limit his stim time or he gets a bit hard to reach. Even though I know what is going on, it can drive me right up the fucking wall.

    DD12 talks incessantly. Always has. Drives me MAD. Once when she was younger I did an experiment on the (back then) 45 min drive home. I never said a single thing except "mmm", and she never even took a gd breath that I could tell!!!!!


    DS9 ...ugh. Slides in his socks everywhere (and of course falls). Only ever hears the first word you say and then dashes off (sliding). I mean he does try to do right, but HOW CAN YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS if I'm only ever going to get to say ONE WORD!  I have taken to shouting "LAUNDRY!" and "HOMEWORK" and "DINNER" and things! How did this get to be my life?!?


    Kids are 4 yrs apart, but they *both* went through this nutty, crazy-making stage when they would get really wound up about...whatever!!...and start making strange, random noises. Not words, not beats, just odd noises in strings...Lord it drove me to the brink, and I really wondered if something was the matter with them mentally. 


    And like katzmeow, don't even get me going with DH.

    DS3 is obsessed with "Army guys" and Lego City Police videos on YouTube and watches them constantly. Then he runs around EVERYWHERE pretending to shoot people. The mailman, BANG!! dead...the little old lady walking down the street...taliban, the guy stocking shelves at the grocery store...he's robbing it and needs to go to jail. It's embarrassing as hell. Makes me think that I'm a bad mommy for letting his head get filled with this shit in the first place. It wouldn't be so bad if he'd just talk about it, but he yells this stuff at the top of his little lungs at people. WTF?

    The DSDs talk like toddlers when they are on the phone with their bio mom. They are 14 and 16. It annoys me but it reaaaaalllllyyyyy skeeves me out too. It's like I can see them regressing when they talk to her.

    Dd won't keep her god damn socks on!!!! Dude it's -40 below keep your fucking socks on!! We would like to keep your feet a few more years k? Ugh

    And she will cry/whine for something, ill ask her what she wants and all she will do is say and try to drag me to wherever that "thing" is. Refuses to talk and tell "thirsty" "hungry" just please and pull on my hand.

    Last but not least, after 10 minutes of please, and tryin to drag me places, all she wanted was a different color pacifier. Not even joking, she looks at the colors and then tries them out and hands me the one she didn't want and she's happy as can be.

    When DD was about two she started going sockless all winter in the house. Would not keep them on and half the time would not keep her clothes on. Then in the summer she would become obsessed with a particular hoodie sweatshirt and wear it everyday of the summer no matter how hot it was. Fortunately this only lasted about four years.

    Yes. My eldest keeps asking for junk food every 15-30 minutes starting whenever he gets up. The kids have junk food rations, but they don't get any junk food before 10AM. At 10:05AM, he got his fifteen little crunchy cheetos. That's it for the day. He's asked me twice for more. It's 10:45AM. I never give him more. I never change from "no" to "yes". Ever. He's 9. I know he's got autism, but why oh why am I not being rewarded for being consistent? FUCK!

    my daughter singing the mama song when i am trying to wake up and drink coffee. The puppy crying for me to go to bed with her after she eats. And if she's mad, wiping her butt on my bed. My sons stash of dirty dishes in his room. And the fact that half the time he will live on macaroni instead of eating what i made for dinner. Daughter leaving a trail of shit everywhere...shoes in the kitchen, clothes on the couch, purse where i sit, water bottles everywhere. Sinks full of dishes when the dishwasher is empty.

    *sigh* At 2.5-almost 3 DS has the last word all the time. And he's either quiet or TALKING. ALL. THE. FUCKING. TIME. He yells at us if we sing along to the iTunes. Dude, if you're going to insist on "playing songs", you're gonna deal with Mom and Dad singing. He runs circles around the kitchen table. Drives me insane. I'm being punished for being a picky eater, because he is the pickiest kid I have come across and I've come across a shit ton of kids. And stubborn. He makes mules and donkies look like pushovers.

    My DS 19 mths fights almost every diaper and clothes change.  Sometimes I can get him distracted by the tv but most times its a chase and just trying to pull off clothes as i put them on and lots of wriggling and kicking.  He also listens to nothing I asked him to do.  I know he understands because he will listen to Daddy, but not me.

    DH and I have decided that DsD6 plays stupid with me for the sole purpose of pissing me off.. Like, she does stuff that makes no sense, just to see if I'll get mad. Today it was mashing her lunch all over her face, and then wiping it with her hands, and wiping those on her pants. When I brought her to the kitchen to clean her up she just stood there like she couldn't wash her hands.. Then she tossed her paper towel in the sink after drying her hands, ThEN went to watch TV in the living room like nobody else was eating.

    Honestly, wtf? Shit like that happens EVERYDAY we are with her.

    Oh, and she flushes the toilet every time she pees, but leaves her shit behind to surprise the next person.

    When my kids play on their own they're quiet, but when they play together then DD5 starts screaming and tearing around. I like that they play together and I don't want to discourage them, but when they scream it makes me want to scream.


    It also makes me crazy that DD always wants me to inspect her butt after she poops. She'll spring it on me, too. "Mom!" "What's up?" "Is my butt clean?".

    My 10 yo thinks out loud. I've spent more time telling her to shut her pie hole this week....what is UP with that?! She's an extrovert, she must talk out loud in order to figure things out, but I'm an introvert! Shut it, and figure it out in your head! Like normal people! Hahah. Sorry babe.

    My 8 yo simply has to take everything out at all times to do his projects. Yes, you have to organize your racecars. And, you have to find something to play on the wii. And you simply must create a new paper figure (Don't call it a paper doll!) from Captain Underpants. But honestly? You have to get out ALL the cars? And ALL the discs? And ALL the markers/paper/scissors? *sigh*

    My 6 yo....entirely too rational for her own good. "Why do I have to clean up my stuff? *You're* just on the computer! I was in school all day!" Seriously. All day. Listen kid. Your mess....not mine. You clean it. She's going to be a handful as a teenager.

    not a single one of my 5 kids can turn their socks right-side-out before putting them in the laundry.  It is so gross to have to unbunch and turn dirty sweaty ride-side-out so they get cleaned in the wash.  And the bonus dusty dirty sweaty baseball socks!!!!  I have gone on crazy lectures and performed demonstrations but nothing gives.

    DD2 will drink from her sippy cup, then spit the water into any other container (Mega-blok, cup, plastic Easter egg, etc), then drink the water from that or, worse, POUR it out on the coffee table.  I take the sippy away when she does it, but I can't very well deny her water, can I?

    DSS15 will not do ANYTHING efficiently or with alacrity.  If I say "put on your shoes, the movie starts in fifteen minutes," it will be six minutes before he actually GETS them on.  He refuses to watch anything with us as a family, in the living room, without having the laptop on his lap and giggling at whatever he's looking at.  The only exception is if we ask him to do something.  If I say, "Will you get DD2 a new cup of water?" he sits there and stares at the TV like whatever's on it is the MOST interesting thing he's ever seen, even if it's Bill-effing-O'reilly!  I've tried turning off the cable box, but he'll just stare at the Dish messages.  If I turn the TV off, he'll stare at the blank screen.  Weird.
