inner rebel & a husband on strike

i think i'm the only person in the world who isn't watching american idol. and i feel all fucking rebelious about it too. like, ooooh- i don't watch it.... fear me and my inner rebel.

speaking of inner rebel, has anyone else noticed that they get more rebelious the older they get? cause i sure do. all of a sudden it's like, "don't you even THINK about thinking about thinking about telling me what to do. you hear me?" seriously. and i don't like being expected to do things- so the moment someone expects (like assumes.. doesn't give me an option..puts requirements on me without asking) something of me, that's it. watch out. inner 30 something year old rebelious bitch is coming out to play! and let me tell you, she isn't pretty. well okay, she's kinda cute- but man is she fiesty! i don't think i ever liked being told what to do- but i think now i dispise it even more. what is it with getting older? you get more bad ass? eh, bad ass, pain in the ass- same difference. maybe it's just me. unless it's you too, and then i'll feel normal again. :)

speaking of rebelling, this husband is on strike because his wife lets the kids sleep in their bed at night. and he just wants some lovemaking time with her and she's not having it. how long did you let your kids sleep in bed with you?

we are just now getting hannah out of our bed and she's 3. HOWEVER matt works 5 nites out of the week SO its not that big a deal that she's in bed with us the nites he is home. i think if he was at home at night we woulda gotten her out alot sooner.

I don't watch American Idol either. I've never even seen it. I've also never even seen Everyone Loves Raymond or that other show with the gay guy and the pretty redhead. People think I'm nuts, but I just don't watch too much of the boob tube.

As for the sleeping issue, Hugo only slept with us a few times. I'm not a cuddler in my sleep and Adam sleeps way too heavily. He did sleep next to us in a bassinette for 3 months, though.

And I have to add that I went to the husband's site and I love that the first ad I saw was "Spouse Tracking System." That's funny!

I totally agree with him, though. I don't care what people do, but I do believe that a husband and wife need to make these decisions together. It sounds like he doesn't even feel comfortable in his own home.

I've never seen Idol. And I love telling people that. They act like I'm from another planet. I can't answer the getting fiesty thing as you get older. Because I always kind of was. And well, I'm only 25. But I think I got worse after I had kids. I mean don't fuck with me, cause I pushed two big headed babies out of me. And yeah, my kids have never slept us. I know, I'm horrible, but they slept in the crib from day one and it was in the other room.

Our oldest..who is 5...still crawls into bed with us...but now it's more like 5/6 in the morning...which is fine with me. My younger one...who is 3 going on 4...always slept better alone. She comes in around 6:30 to snuggle though before the day begins.
With our oldest...he did co-sleep with us until about 3 and a half. He was just a huge snuggler.
Ya know...there are other places to have some fun besides the bed!! That makes it all the better....

I don't watch American idol either. Joey slept with me off and on until he was 3. He comes over around 6:30 to cuddle before starting the day especially if he doesn't feel good.

Jenn said...

Well.....I DO watch American Idol. GOT A PROBLEM WITH THAT?!?!?!

Althea slept in the bassinet in our room for 3 weeks. Then she was in her crib. Maybe like 3 - 4 times she woke up in the middle of the night, and we brought her into the bed.....but SOOO not the same thing.

I don't know about that husband though....I bet he's a punk!

Becky said...

yeah btw i LOVE american idol

MelissaM said...

I'm with you girl on the Over-30 Bad Ass vibe. Don't even think about TELLING me what to do, you can suggest it but don't you dare TELL me. Main problem with my last relationship.

Madison never slept with me. It's too hard of a habit to break.

BTW - I'm with Jenn: I DO watch American Idol too! Love it! AI Fans Unite!

I must be out of the norm. My kids have never slept in our room, let alone our bed. That was our agreement, no kids in the bed. I have a friend who's just now getting her kid out of her room and he's 10! He moved from the bed to the floor in their room when he was like 5...so it's a hard habit to break!

And yeah, i love IDOL! Chris rocks out!

American What? Hmm? We avoid that show. The husband hates karaoke, and to him, this is just televised karaoke.

As for an inner rebel, well, I think mine was programmed backwards. It happens when your parents are rebels, I guess. Of course, that being said, I do not like being told what to do and can be quite blunt with my opinions. I've actually had to learn to be . . . um . . . nicer. You know, so I could keep my job and all. But I still sass back when ordered to do anything. And yes, being bad ass can seem like being a pain in the ass, but that's just the whole "ass" part of it.

The Doodle never co-slept, by the way. She's been in her own room since the day she came home, barring hotel stays and the like, when we have no choice, but even then, she has her own bed. The husband would definitely rebel over that one!

Sam said...

I saw that on the news, too. I say they should have worked out that issue before having #2.

Lisa said...

I don't watch American Idol either. As I get older I've noticed that I don't care what people think of me anymore. If someone didn't like me it used to drive me crazy. But these days its like, "Meh. That's ok. Not everyone will like me. No biggie."

I wish you lived closer. We could so hang out and drink and get into trouble. heehee

Karaoke is only interesting when you've had enough to drink, there's no excuse for this kind of nonsense to be clogging up the airwaves.

1. i make it a habit not to get too addicted to tv shows. i like certain shows, but i'll be damned if my social life will revolve around an electronic device. unless it's a vibrator.....hee hee hee. just kidding.

2. the only close exceptions are: average joe (not on anymore) and big brother (on in the summer).

3. i too have gotten more rebellious as i've aged.i'm not afraid to be a pissy bitch anymore. well, sometimes i'm still afraid. but most of the time, i have no problem flipping the bird at a bad driver (ok, i've done this once!) or being one of "those" customers. if my 18 year old self knew i would ever throw a drink in someone's face, she would be appalled. i agree w/lisa. it's a maturity/self-confidence thing. i used to worry that no one would like me. now i just want to make sure i like myself. :)

4. my parents never let us sleep in their bed. period. we had our own beds. exception: nightmares/afraid of the dark, etc. that's probably why this was never an issue in our house. that's also probably why my parents had 5 children....

I totally agree with the rebel thing. I am such a brat lately when people try to tell me what to do--especially hubby!
