Today was just one of those days where it seemed like neither kid was happy doing ANYTHING all day. Both totally miserable, and making everyone around them (me) miserable as well.
I don’t know what’s going on with Parker, I can assume teething but with him you never really know if that’s true or not until you SEE them popping through, and that can take weeks of miserable-ness before that happens. He just didn’t enjoy anything today. Not napping, not his snacks, not eating.. not playing. The only time he was even slightly happy was when we went to play outside- and even then he’d yell at Holden if he came anywhere near him. Of course assuming Holden was going to take his toys away, which is never a bad assumption to make since Holden loves to do that so much.
Usually I get a reprieve in that I only have ONE miserable kid at a time. Not today. Both kids were total monsters. I think Holden went to time out probably 4 times. Two of which happened back to back because he just couldn’t stop with the sassing and the yelling and the evilness.
I really just have no idea what to do with them when they’re acting that way. I can’t carry Parker around everywhere or i’d never get anything done. Not that carrying him around was making him happier anyways. He just wanted to whine, with no relenting. He wanted to be on the couch, off the couch, on the couch- then fell off of the couch. He wants a toy, he doesn’t want a toy, he wants his milk, he doesn’t want his milk. A total refusal to have a good time at all. I can’t walk away from him because he just screams louder and follows me.
It’s a day where I was so relieved when it was nap time for both boys.. and unfortunately it was cut short because both of them decided it would be a good idea to wake up early.
I just have this feeling that Holden is going to wake up at 6am and insist on coming into bed with us, and then refuse to go back to sleep. Icing on the cake.
Wish I had some kind of funny story to tell you to laugh about the days events as a whole- but really, there was NOTHING funny about the day. All brattiness all the time.
So tired, I can’t even tell you. I can’t even think to write anymore, so i’ll leave it at that.
