I remember sitting on the balcony in Tenerife reading an article of how children turn from being calm and placid to very challenging and mouthy when they start school. I laughed that would never happen to me ….
Famous last words !!!
Fast forward 10 years and my god have we got to that point. My darling sweet angel has turned into a mouthy, arrogant devil. Not only that she has turned her brother and sister to join the alliance. I don’t know what went wrong, who didn’t speak to her but she got up in a foul mood, even more moody than normal. Then to top of the rubbish morning her brother decided to have a mini meltdown as her youngest brother choose this morning, to run round in hyper mode.
So we had the grunts from the devil child, screams galore from the 9 year old, you have to love autism it certainly picks it’s moments. Then you have Zak who has not been well for last few days, as his asthma has been playing up and he has been having his inhalers a lot. Well today , yes you’ve guessed it was the day he felt better and was in hyper mode all morning.
So yes I can totally agree with the article and wish that I hadn’t sneered as much but I have got 3 devil children, who are so mouthy and arrogant at times. Yet in the same breath can be little angels. I know which one I prefer. For now, I will go into battle against these mouthy, arrogant little devils and will reveal the true angels inside them. Also where do they learn to be so mouthy ? is there a special course of how to be mouthy at your parents I would love to know !!
