Warren:I'm done with the dishes, finally!!
Me:Is the dishwasher ready to run?
WarrenNah, that's a waste of time, if I have to clean them off anyway, I just washed them in the sink and put them away.
Me:Oh you washed and dried them
Warren:You didn't say anything about DRYING them!!

Turns out the kid, washed them and then stacked them in the cupboard, STILL WET. Maybe its just my girl genes, but I really don't recall my mother ever having to explain that to me, so I just assumed a kid that could wire a stereo to a computer in 5 mintues flat would automatically know that washing dishes normally includes drying them, if they are being put away. Or is he just playing the age old guy trick of 'act dumb' and get out of it, cause she'll do it herself to get it done right. He was less than thrilled when I made him take them down and dry them.

This is the same kid who has somehow lost the last three point sheets sent home with him, and yesterday after insisting he had his homework, went to get it out after being threatened by me, only to discover it too had been left in school. And yet some how these lapses in common sense are always my fault or the teacher's fault or the man in the moon's fault, because according to my son, they sure as heck can't be his fault. Who expects responsiblity in an 11 1/2 year old. Just cause he insists he is not a little boy, and that I still treat him like a baby (by daring to give him bedtimes and curfews and other evil things), does not under any circumstances mean he should be expected to act like a his age.

Asking him to be responisble for his own stuff, and take his own blame!! How dare I!! Call social services immediately, she expects and 11 year old to act his age?? What next?? I'll tell him he can't drive till the law says he can get a license?? How dare I take away his fun.. And of course if he doesn't have the sheet and he looses points, well that just all my fault. I mean I'm such a evil mother I demand he talk to me respectfully, and even have the gall to make him repeat himself when I don't like his tone or his words. The NERVE. I don't even have the decency to wait on him, like the crown prince he is (at least thinks he is). Child protective services must be made aware of this child's awful plight.

If anybody is looking to adopt, I have a lovely redheaded 11 1/2 year old, who is convinced other kids have it so much nicer. Won't he help me prove just how nice he has it.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
