Biting My Tongue…..

Tick, tick, tick. A.B. sits and texts 24/7 on her cell phone, all the while Doodle Bug is fussing on the floor. She needs some attention. Tick, tick, tick some more. Doodle Bug is getting tired of the same ol’ thing all day long. 10 months is not old enough to keep herself occupied all day long. She gets bored. She gets tired. She sometimes just needs some lovin’.

I’m thinkin’ “Get off your ass and do something with your child. She needs some attention.”

“No. No. No.” S.R. constantly repeating to D.M. All the while she sits on her ass watching the tv. D.M. continues to get into whatever it is she’s yelling at him for. She gets mad and puts him in timeout. Ok, fine. Time out is great but all the kid needs is some attention. 15 months is not old enough to keep himself occupied all day long. He gets bored. He gets tired. He sometimes just needs some lovin’.

I’m thinkin’ “Get off your ass and do something with your child. He needs some attention.”

I am finding it more and more difficult to keep my mouth shut as the days go by. It’s especially difficult knowing that when I have the grandkids by myself, with no interferance by their parents, I have absolutely NO problems at all.
