Cripes. 30 pounds is actually worryingly big. I have to say that over here, some sort of “words” would probably be had because as a nation, we’re a tad obsessed with obesity setting in!

My nemesis is the railway men. I live near a level crossing and they get access to maintain the railway (railroad to US readers) from the crossing. Now they used to use a station further down the line for access but they dug up the siding and make more car park space instead. 

Soooo….every other weekend, the railwaymen arrive with what seem like a million vans plus the really rather awesome “big truck that turns into a train”. They park their vans IN MY FRONT GARDEN (we don’t have fences out here in the country) and take their lunch breaks sitting on my grass. When they’ve finished they leave their sandwich wrappers and empty drink cans behind.

And then, once darkness falls, the awesome “truck that turns into a train” is fired up further down the lane. From whence it trundles, all lights blazing, up past the house – usually at midnight. Thus waking the dog who barks ferociously at the Huge Yellow Monster. Oh, and then they walk backwards and forwards having loud conversations all night just in case we haven’t already been disturbed enough.

All I gotta say regarding “meatball” is holy *&%$ that’s a big kid!  My daughter is 2 1/2 and just hit 30 lbs!

My nemesis is the coffee shop next to my work.  We all go there out of convenience, but I swear the employees must TRY to get every single order incorrect, just about every morning.  And we never know it until we get to work.  It’s become a water-cooler subject in the morning – how did they mess up your coffee and breakfast today?

Seriously, it shouldn’t be that tough.

My nemesis is the neighbor’s grandkid. He screams at my dogs and then the grandparent (who doesn’t seem to speak english) gets all pissy when they start barking at him. He’s also thrown rocks at my dogs through the fence. The kid is like 3, you’d think they’d be watching him a tad closer…

iarebridezilla:  I wasn’t giving you a parenting tip. It’s just a bit selfish to think that your daughters needs are more important than the baby who you have so kindly dubbed “meatball”. I wonder what hilarious nicknames his parents have come up with for your bundle of joy.

cjah:  Self loating is fine. When other people do it, they’re assholes. Just sayin’.

iarebridezilla:  my nemesis is the loud 9 year old who lives next door and must express himself by screaming randomly at the top of his lungs and his 12 year old brother who thinks he’s gonna make it into the NBA because he can bounce his basketball from 6:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. non stop on his porch.

i’ve prayed that the ball gets lost, rolls out into the street and gets ran over by the bus. i’ve prayed that their parents ship them away for a year. all of these things, but alas the kids persist with their annoying noise. and we’re due to have our baby in august. if these kids wake up our baby, IT. IS. ON!

iarebridezilla:  and we went to visit a daycare this morning and the daycare director talked about a 3 year old who stayed at home with mom, grandma, and grandpa for his first 3 years. now he’s in daycare and the worse kid in the entire place. he wasn’t socialized at all and cries ALL THE TIME and disrupts the lesson plans and playtime with his terrible behavior.

at least meatball is getting into the mix before the age of 1, but at what cost? sorry you’re going through this!
