Yeah, I am a day late in getting this up…I actually woke up this morning with my computer sitting in my lap. Woopsie! Anyway here goes! We’re hitting the Mom-life topic this time HAHA! I want all you moms and dads out there to comment below and tell me that it’s not just us over here dealing with this right now haha!!
So our Ry is a sweet natured, well-behaved, polite, energetic (not overly so) wonderful little boy…This week though? WAS IT A FULL MOON OR SOMETHING??????!?!?!?! It’s like there was a shift in the universe and he became a completely different being. Could NOT stop moving, was not behaving, in fact he was going out of his way to do naughty things… Things he KNOWS are naughty…. pulling the dogs tail, trying to poke the dogs butt with his tinker toys (I KNOW!*facepalm*), immediately doing the opposite of what he was asked, including running into the parking lot slipping his hand cleverly out of ours… don’t even get me started on the nail salon experience…my nail tech was the best though… he was so patient and understanding… I was at my absolute wits end last night… just as quickly and suddenly as the behavior started, it stopped. Back to the normal misbehaving, the naughtiness that comes out with hunger or when in need of nap time.
It is SO hard sometimes to have situations like this, you know? You’re in the grocery store, a restaurant, nail salon, EVERYWHERE and you feel like you have ZERO control of the situation and no matter how much you try to get them to listen to reason and guidance to direct them in the ways of proper “people-ing in public”, you just keep losing ground… If I could have stayed home it probably would have been easier, but there were too many things that needed done and only so much time to do it all… I kept having to remind myself that this will pass in a few days and that he’s only 2 1/2 years old, he is definitely NOT doing any of this from malice or spite or just to drive us crazy… he is simply reacting to whatever is going on like a typical 2 year old!
They have no idea how to process the how’s, why’s, what’s of life yet….and I have to remember that. Today was better, he had his moments, but I think we are getting back to the normal part again now haha! Tomorrow we go to the zoo with friends so it will be a good test to see where we are on the crazy scale LOL!
Do any of your kids (or did your kids) have certain times of the months/ years where they just go crazy!?! There’s no way I am the only parent going through this right?! LOL Help a momma out here guys!
Remember to smile, even when life sucks, because they are FREE, they can change the mood of someones day in an instant and they’re for everyone so share them with each person you see, every single day! ❤
