Fuck You, Fighting Kids.

My god. I have entered some entirely new dimension now my kids are a bit older.

No longer do I have to stop the bigger one from throwing baked bean cans at the baby.  I don’t have to keep an eagle eye on the eager hug that turned into a full body suffocation trap. It’s been ages since I had to explain that little cheek pinches can actually sometimes draw blood if you really put your best efforts in.

No. My kids are now at the age where they play together brilliantly all day long just like everyone said. JUST LIKE EVERYBODY FUCKING SAID. “Have another one!” They said. “It’ll be great!” They said. “Imagine how lonely she will be without a sibling.” They said.

Well, FUCK YOU to everyone who said any of the above.

Firstly. You grow the baby while looking after another child. And when you smash them out as closely as I did, this means two under two. Which basically sucks completely if it didn’t sound so cute. The baby is born and you are flung back to square one. Except it isn’t square one. It’s two kids that somehow don’t become just twice the work, but multiply by a billion to create a little space of hell that only the parents of more than one child can attest to.

But here’s my rant. Once you get past the fear of the first child killing the second child, and nervously wondering if they do know that they may, in fact, maim so successfully that they can get to be an only child again, the real fun truly begins.

He practiced daily for floggings he would give the new arrival.

I’ll explain.

Kid 1 probably FUCKING LOVED being an only child, but your primal instinct to breed and listen to the entire fucking world suggesting that one baby is mean and selfish means you ruined their entire existence by spitting out another. You no longer have all your attention focussed on them and their every whim. They’ve even had to stop eating 100% organic food and wearing 100% organic fibres, because you’ve no doubt realised that a lot of the shit you did with the first is entirely unnecessary (and also bloody expensive). So now while they are jacked up on chemicals, packet food and polyester, they get the evil rage inside. The rage that makes them want to hurt their sibling who they will only like for about 5% of their life. 3% of that time being Christmas day.

Every time I pick my kids up from daycare they have to “beat” each other. Not beat each other in the face (that comes later), but beat each other to the door, the car, the letterbox, the front door, the couch, the bath, the sink to brush their teeth. It never ever stops. I’ve tried bloody everything. But they have inherited their dad’s competitive streak, and it’s a hard gene to ignore.

By the time bedtime rolls around I’ve broken up 73 fights, possibly iced a welt or two, absolutely, definitely, given one or both a timeout and manoeuvred my dogs out of the way of Wrestlemania.

They do not hold back. They throw punches like blokes in a drunken bar fight. Hair is ripped at, limbs are pulled, insults are thrown. The insults sting. “You’re a nasty-poo-smell-bum-face” can scar a kid for life. My muffled laughter is probably only cementing the damage. Tensions are high.

Then the worst happens. Once bitching hour comes to a close and the energy runs out and the eggs on the head start to simmer down, the mood changes. There’s a tranquil calm that washes over what was only moments before a scene from a war movie.  They hug.  A hug that wasn’t demanded from me with a feverish frequency. They tell each other they are their “bestest friend in the whole WIDE world”. The L word is thrown around willingly. And they kiss and giggle as they try to get into each other’s beds.

My ovaries start to twitch. One more?

  5. Without proper estate planning, much of what you have worked so hard to earn and keep throughout your lifetime may not be handled as you wish. None of us like to think about incapacity or death. Attorneys Jeffrey S. Goethe and Lawrence W. Thomas each have more than 25 years of experience and have seen the consequences of not planning, or failing to keep plans updated. They help you plan in advance, so your estate will be administered according to your wishes and ensure that all of your property is properly transferred to the beneficiaries or trustees according to your wishes. The trial attorneys at our firm know what strategies to apply when pursuing or defending breach of fiduciary claims. We also have extensive appellate experience and know when to take each case to the next level, if necessary. For experienced advocacy and legal counsel, contact our law firm to schedule a consultation with one of our estate, probate, and trust litigation attorneys.
    For purposes of federal waivers, a customer is at “fault” for a federal overpayment where DOL issued an overpayment determination finding that a willful misrepresentation was the cause of the federal benefit overpayment. The claimant will receive monthly billing notices and other collection letters regarding the amount owed. Should the claimant become eligible for future CARES Act benefits, 100% of each weekly benefit payment may be applied to the non-fraud overpayment balance until it is paid in full (as of March 2022). Individuals with a fraud overpayment balance due must pay the full balance including penalty, interest and lien fees to be eligible for future benefits. In some cases, an employee’s lawyer can be awarded attorneys’ fees for successfully defending a recoupment claim. However, the prospect of this does not necessarily stop insurers’ aggressive efforts to protect profits by demanding recoupment in the first place.

  6. Заказывала средство для роста ресниц несколько раз на этом сайте. Эффект был отличный. В ноябре 2017 приобрела в очередной раз. Эффекта никакого. Применяла в течение 5 недель, ощущение, что ресницы постоянно вылезают и более 3-х мм не отрастают. Даже ощущения при применении средства совсем другие, чем прежде. Разочарована! Рекомендуем не спешить с искусственным наращиванием, а попытаться вернуть здоровье собственным ресницам: длину, натуральный блеск, густоту, насыщенный цвет при помощи специальных средств. В рейтинговый список вошли стимуляторы, рассчитанные на покупателей в различных ценовых категориях: бюджетные, по средней цене, элитные препараты. Использовать тушь для роста ресниц очень просто. Эргономичная щеточка удобно сидит в руках. Небольшое количество средства при помощи кисточки следует распределить у основания ресниц, проведя ей как подводкой. Важно не пропускать никаких участков.
    Кстати, цена была вообще смешной: менее 100 рублей, но я и за более высокую цену купила бы эту подводку – не задумываясь. Задумываясь, как нарисовать идеальные стрелки жидкой подводкой, можно воспользоваться одной хитростью. Сначала следует нарисовать тонкую линию с помощью карандаша, а потом уже сверху по ней дорисовывать вторую с помощью подводки. Прокрашивать нужно вдоль ресничного ряда и немного приподнимать у внешних уголков глаз. Пробовали нарисовать стрелки уже сто раз и ложкой, и скотчем, и трафаретом, и пальцем, но ничего не выходит? Скорее записывайтесь на МАРАФОН – вместе демонстрируя Вам наглядна и давая обратную связь, Вы очень легко и быстро научитесь рисовать КРАСИВЫЕ и ЭФФЕКТНЫЕ СТРЕЛКИ, сэкономите на походах к визажисту и наконец все же научитесь рисовать эти треклятые стрелки! Комментарий: Легко нарисовать стрелки для больших глаз, даже если они глубоко посажены, нужно только знать некоторые хитрости нанесения подводки. Враг номер один – черный цвет карандаша или теней. Также не стоит применять для глубоко посаженных глаз темно-синие тона подводки. Главными союзниками в визуальном решении проблемы станут тени следующих оттенков:
