Parker has decided that he's going to go all "Give me your state secrets" on me. I've come to the conclusion that he is either 1. going through a growth spurt, 2. has an ear infection or something, 3. REALLY wants us to start the cry it out method.
My sweet little man used to wake up once a nice to eat. Now he wakes up 3+ times and after he's done he's not happy unless I'm holding him, if I try to lay him back in his crib I am rewarded with fussiness, then cries, then screams. YEA!!
He's also not napping well. He MIGHT nap for 45mins at a time and getting him to nap is a nightmare too... didn't use to be this way.
Today I was late for work because I was
Kinsley has also been a REAL JOY lately... in case you can't tell by the font, that statement is dripping in sarcasm. She's decided to be a real peach and fuss and whine about everything she can possibly think of. We even threaten to take away her stars from her star chart and she doesn't care. Timeout? Doesn't care. No Mickey? Doesn't care. I'll give you a cupcake! Wrong color... you get the trend.
LUCKILY, Parker has his 4 month check up tomorrow and so I will see if Kinsley can be checked over too (PLEASE be something drugs can fix! Drugs are your friend!). If both kids are healthy and just pissy then this Mommy is about to lay down a whole lot of tough love, so they better watch out. Kinsley will go into her room EVERY.TIME. she gets whinny and fussy (because people 24/7 of a kid fussing, even when you're showering her with attention and CUPCAKES is NOT okay)... and P-man? He will begin the cry it out method.
I'm hoping my kids are just "off" and not being
Remember when Kinsley was around 4 or 5 months old and I hit my depression wall... yeah that's creeping on me right now. I feel it coming on. I'm fighting it but each time that little boy cries and each hour of sleep I keep missing and then ice that cake with toddler meltdowns... I'm slipping. Pray.
