Celebrating the Best Blogs of Summer]

The long week is over for most of us. Now we have two whole days of no "work". I say that for all the moms and dads out there. Their job is never ending. I know. They never leave you alone but when they do you can't take your eye off them.

Good morning all. I can not go on blogger and comment in the afternoon. Sooo aggravating. I have not received any mail yet. Jake did not eat much yesterday. I think it is because the other day I ground up some food and mixed it in and he didn't like it, so he thinks I am trying to trick him. I left out a jar for him again today. Hopefully he will eat.

Danielle, Good morning!
I'm sure when he gets hungry he will, and forgive you for the trickery last time.

The two pics for the day are so cute.
Anyways, does anyone have advice on dealing with a step-son who doesn't listen to you at all. There's more to it but not enough time to type it all down. I just thought I would ask the Fuzz Family for any helpful advice.

TGIF!!!!! Although it kind of sucks too, cause my husband is out of town in the weekend will when your best friend leaves town.

I would suggest trying to just talk a little more. I'm sure you've tried but that's all I got. Sorry.

I forgot how long is he gone for? That stink that he's gone w/out you. But we are here for you.

Danielle-ditto what Katnippia said about Jake and the food.

Katnippia, you should talk to MY step-mother. I was the MOST OBNOXIOUS step-child in history!! We still are "polite" to each other, but will never be best friends. I'm afraid I don't have advice, but lots of sympathy. step-mothering is a VERY hard job.

Hi all,

Wish I could help with the stepson but have no experience there and when my own son was a teenage, he never listened anyway. Now he is 38 and said he appreciates everything we said now but didn't at the time. Unfortuately, he and his wife do not plan on any children, therefore he will never understand how frustrating it was.

Danielle, hope Jake eats that whole jar before you get home from work. Sometimes the progress is by baby steps and as katnippia said, he will eat when hungry. It is so hard to log on in the afternoon, this may be my only posting for the day. Riquel, I know it is hard because my husband used to travel before retirement and one time was gone for a month. I just rented movies (chick flicks), went out with girlfriends and read alot (I love to read mysteries). Hope the weekend goes well for all and Jake, eat your food to build up your strength.

Val, How old is he? And he lives w/you?

At 9:39 AM, Blogger Gheeri's Servant said...

Ugh, this is the first time I'm not look ing forward to the weekend.... have to start moving back in w/Bryans' parents...once again-UGH... see you all later...

At 11:33 AM, Blogger katnippia said...

Kat1, no he doesn't live with us, and he will be 12 in August. His mother tells him that he doesn't have to listen to us , mainly me. He also has no respect for any type of female authorative figure. My husband makes excuses for him, and he thinks when he is here that its all fun and games. I just don't know what else to do. Kat or anyone can email me I won't get home until 9:30 - 10:00 tonight, so i'll check the post later tonight.

Rita- sorry you have to move back in with Bryans parents. How are the two of u, and the fuzz's doing?

At 12:00 PM, Blogger danielle said...

In my opinion you should tell your husband that the child needs to obey waht you guys tell him and if he doesn't then there will be consecquences(sp?) If the husband doesn't like that then tell him you are part of the family too and you should have some say in what goes on.

*sigh* We're doing OK, not happy, but OK. Bryan is going in for a CAT scan-apparently there is a tiny piece of bone chipped off in his hand, and the CAT scan will tell the doctors if he needs surgery or not. Yuk. Gheeri is fine, she still is a little jealous-Toby has become very affectionate, and he likes to glomp on me when Gheeri is having her "downtime" with me. She likes to lay in a circle in my lap as we watch TV together, but lately, Toby comes and stands over her, which she hates (I would too if I were her, lol), so she gets up and leaves, and Toby is just like, "Great, more room for me!" LOL, poor Bagheera. I'm really worried about Toby & the moving. He's first and foremost VERY skittish, even with us. Strange noises/movements send him running. And Bryan's parents' house is not only very noisy, but active as well. Plus, he has two younger brothers, and they have another cat & dog. I'm soooooo worried about Toby. He's gonna scratch himself to death. He already has tons of scabs from nervous scratching. He'll have no skin left at that house. *sigh*
Am I just being a mommy? Or would you guys be worried too?

Also, I'm worried about Squeaky's family. I posted more about that at FFCA. I really need help....

Thanks guys...I should be used to it, he is in the USMC (Reserves now)but I am least it is only for 2 weeks, he will be home next Saturday, last time he left me was for 6 months! I was going to go with him this time (to HI) but I backed out cause I didn't want to spend that much money. At least this time he is in HI and not Afghanistan or God forbid Iraq.
