Don’t get me wrong…my own three year old daughter has her fair share of vile snotty faced moments that make me want to run off and disown her…
And I’m definitely not one to make her out to be some rosy cheeked Angel…
BUT WHAT IS ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE’S CHILDREN THAT CAN BE SO ANNOYING!??
There – I’ve said it! I’ve said what you have all been thinking but have been too wonderfully polite to say. That sometimes I, and probably you..literally inwardly shudder in the mere presence of some other people’s children.
Yes, perhaps it’s because they we have not had to squeeze them out of our too tiny for purpose selves.
Or perhaps it’s because they are in fact little versions of similarly vile people who we also pretend to like but actually secretly detest.
Whatever it is SOME others people’s children, through my “they’re not my kids” non-rose tainted glasses, do seem to be not that too dissimilar to rather vindictive, snotty, Machiavellian, manipulative underworld beings.
But of course I am not some kind of sociopath when it comes to children because admittedly there are lots of other people’s children I really do love..probably such as yours reading this post!
However some people’s kiddos definitely seem to be channeling a whole other yucky rudeness on a Veruca Salt level (whilst their parents seem to be absolutely oblivious to what is happening….hmmmm I wonder what the connection could be!?)…and so god give me strength to put on my very best poker face when I’m around them that I am not secretly wishing this fate on them….
Do you ever get an overwhelming sense that you can simply not stand to be in the same room as some other people’s children? What strategies do you take on to ensure you don’t spontaneously combust in their presence?
