It gets to the point I have to take a deep breath and tell them “can you imagine if I did that to you? It would be very annoying wouldn’t it?”. I love the Duo very much, and bonding is going well, but, well, they are ALWAYS up in my grill. Seriously, sometimes I just need to have 60 minutes to myself to watch Glee. They come into my room and sit on the floor like they own the place. What are you watching? Glee, it’s not for children. Oh. Then they continue to sit there. You need to leave. Oh. Still not moving. I mean it. Please leave. Still Sitting. What are they doing? Who is that woman? Why does she look like a man? Why is that girl kissing that boy? GET OUT!
FPD can be in the next room and they’re all over me like white on rice. It happens when I’m looking at blogs too. They come over and stand RIGHT next to me. Who is that? Another family that adopted a child from Ghana. Will we visit them? I don’t think so. What are they doing? You mean right now? I don’t know. Don’t you know them? No. Then their finger goes right to the screen, I can’t STAND fingerprints on my computer screen. Click here. I want to see this picture. No thanks. I’m using the computer. Can you back up a little? I swear they just move closer when you ask that. Click here. I want to see this picture. But, your dad just got home from work, he’s reading a book to all the other kids. Don’t you want to listen. No. Yes, YOU DO! Then I escort them out and remind FPD that they have had my undivided attention all day, I leave for work in 30 minutes and I want some time to decompress before I go take care of MORE demanding children. He gets it.
Is this just my kids? Maybe I’m giving them too much attention. Is there such a thing? They’re doing REALLY well, so I don’t want to mess with that. But seriously, back down off of me for a few minutes.
who needs some personal space.
