My week-long Spaniards, mentioned in another post, have about got me ready to sob.
Their kids scream, cry, scream, cry, almost constantly. Luckily they are out most of the day. They are quiet at the moment, but we are all on edge, waiting for the next round of wailing to start. It’s hard to think. The one-year-old just has one volume, one way to communicate, and it’s to scream. I’ve watched her at breakfast - she never says no, or whines, or says ‘mamma’ just WAAAAAH!
Never had kids this bad, ever. Yes, I’m pretty sure I’m going to restrict kids under 5 from now on.
This is the thing - we are going out of town tomorrow and they will be here for another 3 days without us.
They are being so disrespectful I hate the thought of leaving them here. Their stuff is strewn from one end of the ‘suite’ to the other. Just stuff everywhere.
I’m sure it will be fine. It’s going to be ok, right? Yes, it will be in the review. My husband asked them to quiet down last night and they did. But this morning and tonight it’s back to the same. And how do you say, mid-tantrum, ‘please keep your kids quieter’. I’m pretty sure they would if they could.
I was going to talk to the dad, but in the morning he looked so exhausted I don’t have the heart to. They are older parents, and he has repeated many times about how traveling is different with kids than without - I think he and his wife traveled extensively before the kids were born.
I just think - this is clearly a situation that they should NOT have brought their kids into someone’s home. Even a grandma couldn’t handle this.
I’d love to just have them rehoused tomorrow. However, I know that to pack themselves up is going to be a terrible chore.
Actually, they have a TON of medications - I wonder if they have to give the baby meds morning and night and that’s why he’s crying so hard??
I got some unpleasant, even frightening medical news today, which is all up in the air, and I’m trying to pack up my family for our trip, which is a ton of work.
Waah Waah Waah - has anyone had people rehoused? Any regrets?
