I've been invaded....

Friday, June 24, 2011

I gave in last night and let my 9 yr. old have a friend sleep over. I don't usually say yes to him because 9 yr. olds require more supervision than 12 yr. olds and I just usually don't have it in me....but I gave in last night - with the rule that they had to be in bed by 9:30 - it worked.....however - I didn't anticipate that the friend would be a 5:30 riser....OH - I wish Mom had warned me - I might have changed my mind.....thank goodness for video games at times.

12 yr. old slept until 10 - but by 11 his buddy was here.....I am finding this boy "ICKY".....I like him well enough - but today - I don't know....clearly he is on Summer vaca and so is his under arm deodorant.....he and the other guest then managed to polish off 12 packages of fruit snacks in one sitting...my kids each had 1.......didn't realize that it was happening as I was cleaning the bathroom.....

I ordered 2 pizzas for the kids....they arrived, and 12 yr. old friend, doesn't eat crust, and ate 6 slices and grabbed half of the fries....Hey - have you heard of manners.

Then it was off to the corner store - where I made my kids take out their own cash....don't know what he ate there.....

Then I watched him eat 3 more packages of fruit snacks.

At this point - my son is even disgusted, and he has a great appetite, but he ate a good breakfast (2 fried eggs, 2 pieces of bacon, blueberry pancake and fruit) and normal lunch - 2 pieces of pizza, some fries and a small salad......so to see him roll his eyes - I know it's nasty. (note to self - hide the good snacks when this kid is coming....)

Still don't have the wheels, and you know with kids in the house like this I have NO cardio in...did do my QF, BB and BC...but that isn't much......cardio is much needed AGAIN......

Tomrrow has a day filled with 5 baseball games......don't know how it's all working yet - 9 yr. old has 2 - which hubby is the coach for - 12 yr. old has 3....don't know the times as yet....

Good grief.....Summer Baseball - love it or hate it.....some days I hate it.

    I'm afraid of what our grocery bill will look like when my son gets to be 12+.
    This kid sounds like some sort of human food vacuum.
    Good luck to your boys at their games tomorrow!
    (and good luck to you getting your cardio in - I think you need a little stress relief after dealing with the extra kids, LOL.)

    It might be appropriate to say something to the kid who's pigging out, like "It's polite to ask if anyone else would like more before having seconds."

    Hang in there!
