    Here's a thread for bitching about your kids, who you love beyond measure, but who can be utterly fucking insufferable

    The thought "I could be at work now" passed through my head over the christmas break. I still feel guilty about it.

    My 9 year old is going through an extended phase of preferring cry for an hour than do pretty much anything that was someone else's idea. Today it's practicing piano, tomorrow it'll be drying a few dishes or maybe going to bed. Or getting up. Surely a 9 year old should accept that people have to go to bed?

    I get that. Although its the 6 yr old that does it. 10 year old will argue and usually win an extra 5/10 mins. 6 yr old will just cry through the 5/10 mins extension, then cry harder when the extension is up, for probably another 10 mins. Better than moping about, yearning for their leaba and hoping for the days to end :p

    I remember a holiday a few years back, when the now 10 year old cried all day every day about walking, eating, shitting pissing, swimming, fucking everything. fucking wrecked the whole holiday with incessant whinging, and now talks about the holiday as the best he was ever on. UNREAL

    When I'm old I wouldn't mind having grown up kids to look after me instead of living alone in some dreary bachelor kip

    That's the fucking worst of it. My child is doing my fucking head in, and it's probably my fault

    I find locking them in dark place softens their cough.

    My daughter absolutely loves Liam Gallagher

    I now know the words to “Wall of Glass” because she plays on repeat in the car
    We’re going to his concert in June
