We had a major incident here. My girls totally trashed their room today. This is a daily thing. I mean every toy is on the floor, every book off the shelf. We have taken everything away, we have grounded them...it just doesn't seem to matter because they just don't seem to care about any of their things. So anyways, my husband walks into their room to find my seven year old walking on top of all the toys and books. He starts yelling and I go in there to find that several of the books have pages torn out of them. It just like a hurricane hit. I start getting them to clean up when I find the Leapad in the corner with a glass of water that was brought into the room (a definate no-no) spilled on it. Needless to say it no longer works.
Hubbie is saying that he is cancelling Christmas. He wants me to take all the gifts back and inform my family that the girls will not be having Christmas this year because they are not appreciative of the things they already have so why should anyone give them anything else. He wants to take down the Christmas tree and the outside lights. He is VERY angry.
Now, I think this is extreme but I can totally understand why he is going ballistic because this is an issue we have been pulling our hair out. I tried to discuss it with him but he is being very stubborn about this. He even told the girls he was calling Santa to cancel their gifts and have them put on the naughty list. Now the girls are hysterical. Of course, I am totally stressed out because I have him stomping around and the girls crying. What do I do?
