    Well ok, not mine. Mine are pretty good.

    I've been watching the kid's dayhome for a few days, so the dayhome provider could go on vacation and again on Friday as she's going out of town.

    The boy is pretty good, a boy but not bad - just rough which is normal.

    The girls.... sisters...... :yikes:

    They simply do NOT LISTEN! And are sneaky. I dislike sneaky kids so that doesn't help. Everytime I tell them to stop doing something (climbing the tree that has power lines through it, riding toys down the sidewalk into the street) they argue. Or as I find out later, just say 'ok' then sneak whatever it is they're not to be doing. One will go one way, one the other, and still get away with things.

    The dogs are stuck in crates, in part because the girls think it's soo funny to run and scream blue murder (and have the dogs follow them, they're not staying for monsters!). The cat is close to biting the one kid because she will not leave her be - she puts up with so much but if a kid tries to pick her up, there's blood required.

    And the hermit crabs.... just changed their tank a few weeks ago, should have been good for a few months (it's deep substrate so does ok), but they've put food in it a few times, and yesterday dumped the entire container of food all over the tank. And left the lid open... so they're moving to a tank in the master bedroom on Friday so they're at least safe from the little buggers.

    And yes, I am watching them but there's five kids total and I do have to rotate who I am watching - or make lunch, pee..... they wait till those times then act up.

    Is it wrong to move all the crabs, wait and then tell them they died because someone put too much food in? :p

    Yuck. I can't stand evil, lying little children. D: I love most kids but I've known a few who were just... going to grow up to be the hugest bitches! Luckily all of my sunday school class kids are sweet & honest, and I've known most of them since they were toddlers.

    I would definitely tell them that the hermit crabs died. I told my neices the same thing about my goldfish that they fed tons of food, after I told them not to 10 times, and they learned their lesson!

    Hell, I don't think you'd be wrong to feed them TO the hermit crabs.

    UGH. I have a lot of patience when it comes to kids... I have to lol I have a job at a preschool and I'm teaching 5 homeschool classes this year with kids from pre-k to first grade BUT one thing I cannot stand is sneaky, outright defiant children.

    I understand kids are kids and with that comes a certain level of trying to get away with things. it's natural. HOWEVER, when they make it into an olympic sport. ARGH.

    My Neice was one of these kids. From the time she was mobile she was vindictive, sneaky, and manipulative. I honestly couldn't stand to be around her. She's still this way at 19 years of age and I still can't stand to be around her most of the time lol. terrible to say because she is my neice but seriously I have no patience for that sort of thing.

    Oh, and how about the ones that wait until mom is there, then do exactly what you've told them not to with the "my mom's here and you can't stop me now" smirk?

    And mom sits there and smiles benignly while they do something horrendous that you KNOW she'd never tolerate in HER home.
