Slice of Life Story Challenge March 7 - Line In the Sand Moments
A List of Exasperations
Listened to a parent becoming exasperated with the antics of a small child in a public place today. A small child who ferociously resisted all attempts at redirection. Finally, the parent lent in closely to the child and through gritted teeth quietly shared those oft repeated words, ‘I’ve just about had enough!’
Woo, line in the sand time, for that little person… Red lights and sirens.
Think about it. Throughout our lives as parents there are lots of times when we have had enough. Times when we have had enough and can’t take anyone to quote the late Peter Finch in the film, Network.
So, I made a list. I’m not sure if it helps, but it certainly shows that in this world there are many things that drive parents to distraction. If you are a parent, you might even hear yourself at some point in my list.
Things Parents Have Had Enough Of
Children and dogs being inside
The neighbour’s mower
