Losing My Mind

So Hubby has been gone for 6 days… with 9 to go.  I am not sure that we will survive this!

Little Critter has decided that turning three entitles her to constant fit throwing.  Everything in her hands (which is usually a lot as she carries around stuff constantly) hits the ground… little feet stomp… little lip goes into full pout mode… head tilts toward the floor.  Then the WAILING starts.  Full on tears and crying for 20 minutes at times.  Just because Mommy said to put your boots away. 

I have NEVER had to deal with this kind of attitude with my other kids.  K3 was definitely a screaming fit thrower… but when she wasn’t in fit mode, she listened pretty well.  The older two never did the fit throwing (maybe its that oldest child thing) and I didn’t have to deal with it when TeenGirl was a toddler as she still lived with our Mother and I was not in the same house!

Little Critter doesn’t listen… EVER.  It’s like she hears nothing.  She throws fits when things don’t go her way.  She pouts… she cries… she fights with her siblings.  She is a perfect angel when Daddy is around.  Maybe he should become the SAH Parent?!!!  (That’ll NEVER happen).

Today is one of those days when I am VERY glad I didn’t give in to the urge to have another baby. 🙂
