This morning I awoke to screaming from the living room. In fact it was the screaming that woke me up. At 9am. To many people, 9am is sleeping in. Not to me. To me 9am is early on a Saturday morning. I’m more of an 11am-on-a-Saturday kinda gal. So I was a little pissed.
The screaming was coming from Skyler, Spencer and Caleb who were all yelling at each other as well as the TV. This always happens when they play video games. This morning it was some game on the Wii. Skyler was screaming, “COME THIS WAY.” Spencer was screaming, “NO! WE ARE GOING THIS WAY.” Caleb was screaming, “WHY DID YOU JUST KILL ME?” Even though that’s the point of the game.
Actually, I’m not positive that’s what they were screaming. I was half asleep and very groggy so what I heard was more like Charlie Brown’s teacher. But I’m guessing they were screaming the above because that’s what they normally scream at each other while playing video games.
Why can’t kids just play a freaking game without getting ticked off and yelling at each? Why does video game = screaming like a banshee? Why?
So I had to drag my tired butt out of bed to ground them from the video game for the rest of the day. Parenting is sooo getting in the way of my sleep.
