10 Things I’m Sick Of Hearing On School Holidays

It’s that magical time of year again… School Holidays!

I have to look after my own children…. ALL DAY! FOR 2 WHOLE WEEKS!

Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids.

They’re amazing, funny, creative, and fun to be around…. Just not on the second week of school holidays.

All of a sudden they are moody, bored and temperamental. Wishing we were doing anything other than what we are doing and the fighting…. Dear god, the fighting.

They are poking, shoving, jumping on each other, biting (yes actually biting) and breathing on each other. Which everyone knows is the WORST FORM OF TORTURE EVER!

My wallet can’t handle many more trips to the bottle shop!

Here are 10 Things I’m Sick of Hearing on School Holidays…

1. I’m Bored

Seriously? I’m bored too! Staying home and looking after kids and doing housework is boring! It has to be done though and seeing as you guys trash my house every. single. day. We are going to be doing it for the foreseeable future.

2. I’m Hungry.

I know you’re hungry. You’ve told me 5 million times today and it’s only 9am. Just eat. Eat whatever you want, just please stop whinging for 5 minutes.

3. I Don’t Want That.

I don’t care. I’ve hit that stage. I just don’t care.

4. What Are We Doing Today?

I don’t know. I haven’t had coffee, you need to take a step back and let mummy wake up for 5 minutes. Go and clean something…

5. (Insert Name Here) Hit Me…

Sigh. Again?

6. I’m Hungry….

Still? There is no food left in the house! We are down to brown bananas and bread crusts! Sure you can have a banana sandwhich…. Yummo!

7. What Are You Doing?

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out what I’m doing sweetie. I’m cleaning up all the destruction you guys have unleashed on my house…

8. Where Is My (Whatever it is they’ve lost)

No. F-ing. Idea. Try looking for it… Until you find it.

9. Are You Going To The Bottle Shop Again?

Why yes lovely husband I am. Got a problem with that? No? Good.

10. Can I Have A Cuddle Mummy?

Just kidding, I’ll never get sick of hearing that one!
