I’m pretty damn sure that I speak a foreign language that my kids can’t even begin to understand. I speak, there are words coming out of my mouth and I know that they can hear me because they are staring right at me but they just stare blankly at me like they have no idea what the hell I am saying.
It is so frustrating becuase by this time in my mommy carreer I should have it pretty much figured out, I should at least know how to get my kids to understand the damn words that keep coming out of my mouth. Becuase of their lack of understanding of the things that I say, the volume in which I say it gets louder until for some un known reason they finally understand me. By that time though I am no longer saying it nicely or calmly and I’m sure if it were possible steam would be coming out of my ears.
I know I am probably not the only one who speaks in this foreign momlanguage, I’m hoping one day that I will stumble across an article or blog post that will reveal the magical secret that helps in the whole translation thing. Maybe one day. Hopefully before all my kids are grown up that is. lol.
