Life has been a little stressful lately and naturally when I get this busy I tend to shy away from the blog. The irony here being that when I get this busy and chaos is all around me happens to be the time when I need this blog the most. So this is me reaching out and saying I need this, I need to write and find my voice. It has been a little lost for a while.
It’s nothing major really just the every day stress that comes from parenting a 7yo, 5yo and a 2yo. The 2yo is so easy-going and relaxed we just thought that we would skip right over those pesky terrible two’s! Umm not!!!! The closer he gets to those trying threes the more he has decided to show us that we haven’t seen nothing yet!
Let’s see lately we have had a full-blown satanic meltdown over power rangers, his blanket, whether or not he wants to eat his banana and well really anything that strikes his fancy.
This morning proved to be quite the challenge. I went and awakened him out of his slumber and he just layed there smiling at me with those cute little dimples, and I thought okay. he’s in a good mood. Not a chance! He threw down about the shirt he was wearing and then his dang underwear! Apparently only super hero underwear was the way to go this morning! Seriously!! Then after said meltdown we got up and I carried him to the couch in which he screamed bloody murder because Mickey mouse was left in his bed. I consider myself a good parent so I went to het the mickey! Damn that was the wrong thing to do. he stomped and screamed right behind me and then his devil horns began to show because apparently he is the only one who can touch mickey mouse!
So I did what any parent would do I threw that shit down and decided to pee. a completely hysterical kid followed me and as I was on the potty decided that he needs to go too! I tell him to go to his bathroom and next thing I know he has peed all over the damn place! OY.. so much for being in a good mood.
We eventually made it to the car and dropped off at daycare. I am lucky to have such great work friends who don’t mind me being a few minutes late and can not only relate but laugh at my expense. In hindsight it was pretty funny but don’t tell my son that..
Now as I drink my glass of red wine all I can say is terrible two’s can suck it! I want my sweet boy back 😉
