This morning ds7 had made a Lego creation and was upset when his brother got into it. I told him, "That's what 2 year olds do...if you leave something where he can reach it he is likely to get into it." To which the 2 year old agreed, placing his palm on his chest and saying, "Yeah, me baby."

Hmmm...me thinks I have been being "played"! :RpS_laugh:
That's what my brother used to do. I'm five years older, and he was into everything, but milked the baby card all he could. It got frustrating sometimes because he was really a PitA a lot of the time, but I was supposed to be nice no matter what because I was older and knew better. I love my brother, and my parents weren't as bad as many with the whole older/younger sibling thing, but there were times where it was really upsetting that he could get away with stuff that never would have been tolerated from me just because he was the baby.

My brother used to take apart my Legos. Even the little Lego guy character hands and feet and stuff. It got the point where my mom would "literally" glue the sets together. When my brother broke those they would just come apart in chunks rather than individual pieces. Easier to put back together in chunks I guess.

Ugh! Did any of you ever have a friend that was always negative and energy draining? I just got off the phone with such a friend. DH came into the room just as I was finishing up the one side conversation and knew exactly who I was talking with. My friend practically hung up on me because I dared to interject a different opinion than hers (she just wants me to agree that she is the victim 100% of the time).:RpS_mad:

Love it!!! Those little kids are much smarter then we think. My DSis was telling about her 2 year old who just randomly slugged her brother in the eye. When my sis asked her what had happened, she sat back on a pillow with her hands behind her head and legs crossed and said, "Me hit him". DSis tells her that hitting isn't nice and if she does it again, she will have to go to time out. My niece sees this as a bonus so she immediately gets up, wacks her brother as hard as she can and goes sit in timeout!!! I LOVE 2 year olds!!!! (Said by the aunt who can't have kids so just gets to enjoy the humor in it all!!!)

Sorry.....friends like that can be hard. I have a mom and 3 sisters like that. Seriously.....I'd disown my whole family if it weren't for an amazing dad and 2 other sisters who are two of my best friends.

Well.......I was suppose to work today but after my bad day yesterday and the fact that I haven't been feeling great all week.....I was just a zombie this morning which doesn't make driving 4+ hours round trip a good idea. Plus....my eyes are bad which makes wearing those hard contacts even more difficult which means I'm pretty well blind so again....not good with the driving thing. So, I'm resting today and taking care of the eyes and I'll get that work done on Monday. I so wish that Feb had an extra day....I hate going to the airports on Mondays!!!

Yup! I have a SIL who insists that the world is against her. Takes zero responsibility for her own actions. :RpS_sneaky: I have a friend who I feel like I need a nap after talking to. She's exhausting. It's like she sucks the air right out of the room. This is what called ID and answering machines are for. :RpS_thumbup:

"UGH IT'S JOSH!! I HOPE HE DOESN'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT DISNEY WORLD AGAIN"

Dealing with life sucking family members is a whole different ball game:RpS_scared:.

You're obviously calling the wrong people. :RpS_rolleyes:
That's what EasyWDW is for.:smile: I have only one friend that knows of my Disney obsession... now I understand why she never returns my calls.:RpS_lol:

I'm not actually on speaking terms with my SiL, so I'm not sure if you're in better shape or I am. My SiL is honestly one of the most heinously witchy people I have every met (we're not FB friends anymore because she was so nasty to me on there), so I'm actually thankfully that we don't have a relationship (and that she lives in Memphis, and we live in Chicago, so chances of contact are at a minimum).

Everyone has a bad day, and I will cheerfully listen to anyone's rant about it - but when every day is drama filled? That's just too exhausting for me to put up with. I've had a couple of friends who I've deliberately drifted apart from for that very reason.

I would say that you could call me to talk about Disney, but DH might get a bit jealous - he's fine with my guy friends, but for some reason I think he'd feel more threatened by a Disney-obsessed one.

:RpS_biggrin: Maybe his jealousy would cause him to pick up a Disney guidebook or start a Disney related website to win back your affection.

I can certainly relate. I'm the baby of the family. Loved it!!

Hmm...I don't think so. I can't actually complain about my DH - he loves Disney almost as much as I do, and as long as we can swing it financially, he's pretty darn willing to go. This is particularly impressive since no one in his family likes Disney at all.
