SO MUCH LIKE ME ITS SCARY!

I think I had an argument with an Oompa Loompa, but I'm not sure.  I think I won the argument, but I'm not too sure of that either.  Rocky left finally and grudgingly went to bed but I am still stressed out.  Its not like she was talking back, it was just a lot of 'but Mom's.  Drives me nuts!  As of tonight I'm changing my name to Dad.  They never whine 'but Dad!'.  NEVER!

Rocky has 3 tests tomorrow and doesn't want to go to school in the morning.  She is in the 5th grade.  How hard can 5th grade tests be?  Okay, forget I asked that... I've seen her math and I have trouble with some of the problems myself... Anyhow, so here's this little microscopic version of myself asking me "How much seafood does a person have to eat to get sick by morning?", and "Can't you call in to work tomorrow and tell them that I'm sick so you have to stay home?" 
"But you're not sick Rocky." I pointed out.
"I will be after I eat all that seafood" she insists.

OMG, my 5th grader does this also.  I am going to take Nyquil so I throwup and don't have to go to school in the morning.  Today she was talking about falling and hurting herself so she wouldn't have to do homework.  Maybe she's not in need of psychiatric care and it's a 5th grade thing?

i know its stressfull as i have three children that love that game expessally my soon to be twelve year old and even with downs can get the sick routine down to a tee!!!!it is very stressfull to try to get thru it expecally when you are always trying to figure out are they relly sick or can they do a wonderfull imitation lol
but as you dont see because mothers never see the humor in what children say as they are trying to get away with things it is quite comical the way they go about things to get there way ..dont get me wrong i have no humor for my children pulling the sick routine but i thought bit was actully funny she was going to see how much sea food she could eat to be sick and was so honest about it ..as for me i still play the guessing game and also after the fact have them tell me oh i just lied a little bit lol
good luck ..teenage years are a comming ....have a great weekend
