My son irritates the life out of me. I love him with all of my heart, and I know he's a good boy, but good lord the things that he does drive me up the wall! I feel like I'm always snapping at him, and then I feel so guilty afterwards. The things he does are so weird, and I try so hard to be patient but it seems like he does things purposely to drive me up a wall... a few examples: He is ten years old.... he puts his finger in his poop and wipes it on the walls and the toilets and sink. He has gotten in trouble multiple times for this and it doesn't matter. He shoves food inside of my cloth chairs so he doesn't have to eat it. He has a drawer full of clean socks and underwear, but I'm constantly fighting with him to change them. He will go days wearing the same ones until he gets complaints about his smell if I don't follow up on him daily. He constantly corrects me in public, and always say's the wrong things at the wrong times. For example, I told my boyfriend I didn't have any money left because I had wanted to take my kids out to dinner. I took them... the first thing my kid does is tell my bf all about it after I specifically said this was a special mom and kids day. That's a small example, there are worse ones... He will always interrupt people when they're talking, and he's very annoying to other people and kids. He will try to be charming and tell "jokes" to people, every where we go, no matter who the person is. Once a person is kind enough to pay him attention, he expects that person to go on forever listening to him.. people get so uncomfortable and look at me like, get your kid.... I'm pregnant now, and his new thing is to get a running start and come running at me even while I'm yelling no no no!!! and hit my belly with his head.... to give me a hug.... and knocks the breath out of me. I have explained countless times that he can hurt the baby and he has like this vacant stare.... I can't take it anymore... maybe I'm just the worst mother on earth but good god this kids drives me crazy.
