Rockford’s Rants

Funny Meltdowns with my son

We all have experienced our kids’ meltdowns. Kids can say the funniest things during these trying times. For me, it can be tough not to laugh at some of the things that comes out of my son’s mouth. Here are some of the rants from my boy. Sometimes, humor is the best way to get through the day.

Rockford: “Ahhhhh! You make me cry! That’s why I have to spank you because you’re a bad girl. I’m not going to play with you anymore.”


At the store while in the baby’s food section Rockford breaks a baby jar of food after receiving a warning. I immediately picked him up and placed him in the shopping cart. He frantically screamed because he wanted to get out and when I wouldn’t budge he belted out, “I’m not going to eat anymore!”  


Me: “Rockford Miles!”

Rockford: “Why you call me Miles?”

Me: “Because that’s your middle name and I call you by your first and middle name when I am angry.”

Rockford: “Well, why are you angry?”

Me: “Because you got me angry.”

Rockford: ‘Well, why are you so grumpy?”


At the library Rockford knocks down a huge wooden puzzle and makes a loud noise. I quietly walk over to him and tell him to pick up the pieces immediately. He looks up at me and replies, “Or else what?” Ok I totally didn’t see that one coming.


Me: “I have to wash my bed sheets because you peed on them. How would you like it if  I peed on your bed?”

Rockford: “No, don’t pee on my bed. If you pee on my bed one time, I’ll pee on your bed three times.”

Rockford: “Hey!”

Me: “Rockford you don’t talk to me like that, I am your mother and your elder. You need to respect your mama and your elders.”

Rockford: “Oh, but when I grow up Mama I’m going to tell you that.”

Every time Rockford does something mean to Rocco we tell him we will do the same back to him i.e. take a toy away. So naturally…

Rockford: “If you say that to Rocco I’m gonna say that to you!”


At the park Rockford wanted to get on one of the rides and started tugging at a boy slightly older than him to get off of it so he could ride it. I called out to him, “Rockford, you have to wait your turn!” He turns to the boy (still shoving him) “You need to take turns!” Then I call out to Rockford, “No, Rockford you wait, you need to be patient!” Rockford continued to pull on the boy’s shirt and shouted, “You need to be patient, GET OFF!”


Rockford: “I’m gonna break your house so don’t fit in it anymore!”

Me: “Well if you break it you wont have a house either and where are you going to go?”

Rockford: “Umm, well I will go to Nana’s house.”

Me: “Nana works in the daytime so you’ll be all alone all day.”

Rockford: “Well, then I would be sad if I’m alone.”

Me: “Yes you will.”

Rockford: “Ok I don’t break the house mama. I don’t say that.”

Well at least I know I can still reason with him.



Though I know these are trying for me…I know I can get through them.  These verses have always come in handy.

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

 ~2 Tim 1:7

Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail).

 ~Psalm 55:22

I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

 ~Psalm 16:8

 Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them. 

~ Proverbs 13:24
