Kids are annoying (except for my own)

I have decided that I dislike my kids friends. They are spoiled, annoying, and sometimes I hear them making fun of my children. The boys had a friend spend the night last night. He REALLLLLLY gets on my nerves. This morning I asked them what they wanted for breakfast and they all wanted pancakes. So what normally goes on pancakes? Well at my house, butter, and syrup and from time to time fruit. So I make them all pancakes and I deliver the plates. And in the most annoying whining voice I hear, "But I don't like butter." "YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FREAKING KIDDING ME!" I think my exclamation must have startled him because he took his fork and skimmed off the butter that had not already melted into the pancake and ate it anyway. Good choice for the kid. While they were eating breakfast I told them our plan for the day. OK, after breakfast we are going to go to the park and play and then we are going to the store to pick up a birthday present for your friend, and then we are going to the birthday party. I was interrupted in mid sentence by that annoying little voice again. "But I just want to play the Hot Wheels game on the PS2." I could feel the veins in my forehead popping out. I told the kid that the PS2 game was hooked up in our bed room and that my husband was sleeping right now. "Can't you hook it up in the living room?" "I could, but wouldn't you rather go play in the park and get some exercise?" "I hate exercise." GREAT! Not only am I stuck with an annoying opinionated child that interrupts me but he's lazy too! What is happening to the youth of today? My kids love to run and jump and play, and look for bugs, lizards, snakes and frogs. This kid only wants to stay inside where it is cool, play video games, and he doesn't like to get dirty. A boy that doesn't like to get dirty? Have you ever heard of such a kid?

I'm not sure why he annoys me so. Do you think going to bed at 3am had anything to do with it?

Yes, that might have had something to do with it!

But he does sound like a horrid brat.

My boys know to keep well clear of me if I am sleep-deprived!

Just think how you are enriching this kid's life Cece, getting him out to the park etc..

Hope you get some good shut-eye soon!

Cece, I've got to admit, I just cannot bring myself to host sleepovers at my house, I just can't take the pressure. Luckily, Hedgehog is known as the "good sleeper," and she always puts herself to bed before 9 pm, even on sleepovers--thus, other parents don't seem to mind hosting her...

That boy sounds awful.

If you kept your cool, you're a total trooper.
