what are some things your kids do that really frustrate you?
Emersyn's only really frustrating thing is her ability to wake up JUST as I'm drifting off to sleep. I'm sure the kid is psychic.
Gaby has a whole list but her most frustrating right now is when she asks constantly when she can do something, when we are leaving to go somewhere etc.... she asks and asks and asks, seemingly forgetting that 2 minutes ago I told her
Oh, yeah, Meghan has some whopper meltdowns. Thank god they're happening with less frequency but when they do happen-look out! Went completely berserk today because she couldn't get her plastic juice bottle to spin on the floor. Screamed, cried, stomped, threw things around the room. It was a bit disproportionate, to say the least.
I have another one-expecting me to be a mind reader. Rather than tell me what's she having trouble with and what she'd like me to do to help, which she is capable of, she skirts the issue, and gets infuriated when I don't guess what she wants, and refuses to anwer my questions.
Or if she wants me to put something somewhere. Everything has to be "just so" but once again, there's lots of skirting the issue and screaming, and pointing, but no adequate communication. Shen then gets angry at me because I can't read her mind.
Honestly, would it be so hard for her to just tell me she wants me to draw her a circle. Is it really necessary for her to scream about it?
