**It’s my blog and I can say what I want to, say what I want to…** sang to the tune of ‘It’s my party and I’ll cry if i want to’.
I don’t know why, but I feel like posting a couple pet peeves of mine. You can read or not, I can’t promise you it will be nice. 😛
1.) When someone tells you ‘Oh Just Wait’… I’ve heard it recently when referring to your kids. This comment REALLY irritates me. First of all, what do you want me to wait for?!? Would you like me to stop breathing to wait for the day?? “Oh just wait!” And 2nd of all… well I don’t need a second of all because it’s my pet peeve! I feel like it’s a pointless conversation and would rather not hear you say anything. (Almost like the how are you? fine, how are you? fine)
2.) This is kind of a variation of #1. For instance, Jaidan learns to sit up or make a new noise… we are enjoying it saying ‘oh how cute’ and then someone comes along and says ‘pretty soon he’ll be walking and getting into everything’. Okay now I know it’s just something to say, I guess? And I don’t take offense to it or anything, but some people are just annoying when they say it! Like they are rushing my babys life away! Yes, SOMEday he will be crawling, SOMEday he will be walking, SOMEday he will be talking, but TODAY he is sitting up and making cute noises! People are sooo anxious to rush everything- just sit back, ENJOY life and savor the precious moments as they happen. It all goes by so fast.
So that was a couple pet peeves of mine, but why stop there?
Cliche words, phrases, and comments – cant stand them (i.e.- ‘it is what it is’, and especially the religious ones that even non-christian people say- “God wont give you more than you can handle”, “It’ll only make you stronger”… etc. ) ((I believe there are truth to these sayings, but it’s become so common that there is no meaning behind them when people say them))
I feel like this wasn’t a very happy post. Can you tell I’m annoyed with people lately? But I am a REAL person, and I have REAL feelings so these are my REAL thoughts. (I’m going to go pray now… even though I should have prayed BEFORE I wrote this. :P)
What are your pet peeves?
