Today I realized I am turning into the mean lady in the neighborhood. Yeah you know the one I'm talking about! Who would have thought that at 23 I would be the mean old lady of the neighborhood! We have quite a few kids around us which I don't mind, seeing as I am a mom of 3 kids, not that much is going to bother me.
These kids are CRAZY! They are always in our yard. They could play in their yard, but for some reason our yard is better I guess. Now that I don't really mind, but now they are starting to ride bikes in the yard, around and around in circles. They play on our front porch. OH and get this they are constantly looking in our front windows! Crazy, right?! Now in their defense we do live where there is no sidewalk, just your yard and them BAM the street, a very busy street at that. Thus why I don't really mind them in the yard.
If you are outside they are constantly right next to you talking to you asking you questions. They are always trying to play with Timothy's toys in the garage, and have even taken toys out without asking. Then just recently they have started to push me to the edge. If one of the dogs get out, which happens almost daily, they will bang on the door and ring the door bell non stop. When we open the door obviously annoyed they then tell us our dog got out! I appreciate them bringing our dog back, but the banging on the door and ringing the bell is just getting under my skin. And this is just not one knock/ring. It goes something like BANG BANG BANG, RING RING RING, BANG BANG BANG, RING RING RING....for like 5 minutes!
Well today I had enough!
ME: "DO NOT knock on the door or ring the bell ever again"!
The boys: "Uh Uh your dog got out".
Me: *grabbing the dog from his hands* "DO NOT come in my yard again"!!
The boys: *run off*
Seriously though I can only take so much! I think what gets me the most is that the dad(single father) does not watch or even know where his kids are half the time. As a matter a fact most parents don't around here. The dad the one day came over when his kids were pestering Tim while he was BBQing, and said that they must have snuck out while he was watching a movie!
I just don't get it. I guess I will not only be the mean lady in the neighborhood, but also the mean mommy. The mommy who does not just let her kids wonder all over the place looking through peoples window's.
