My 15...I'm sorry, 5 year old

5 weeks...5 weeks of bliss and then BAM, back to reality.

If I have to say 'you don't talk to me like that' one more time, I may lock him in his room until he's 18 and can move out.
Just a glimpse of what he said to me today

~You don't talk to ME like that
~I'm not talking to you
~Just get me whatever you want
~no, no, no, no...etc
~I don't have an attitude
~I can just do whatever I want

How is it that he is still alive? I don't know...he's cute?

He went to bed at 7:30, without dinner...maybe that will help.

Bring the pain sister! I feel ya! The boys (carl came back to my good side) are *this* close to being sold!

We will survive! We will survive! Hey! Hey!

oh i wish i had some advice for you - but i do think the cuteness of the little man does help him survive.
i'll take him off your hands for a few if you need - i'll just go run him around a park for a few hours!

Hey, if either of you is looking to sell a child. . .I may know some people on the far end of desperate. . .:-)

You will survive this! And 7:30 without dinner sounds like a good attitude adjuster to me!

He was actually very well behaved I guess I won't lock him in his room just yet.

Very funny on my end but I can only imagine how frustrating it would be to have a 5 year old to mom like that. I have heard that my 3 1/2 nephew says some similar things. Hang in there.

OMGoodness! I wish I could say it gets easier... I really do. If nothing else, for MY sanity. Wait until he is 12 and 15... Ugh. Luckily they throw in a cute moment every once in a while!
