My head is spinning from today and its only 3:00pm.
I knew this was coming but thought maybe I was going to get lucky. I was thrilled when C started walking bc it totally changed his mood. He still has his moments of screaming and crying but nothing like it used to be. So here I thought THANK GOD I get alittle of my sanity back.
Well over the past week its just not working. First he kept walking over to Madeline and climbing on her or he would lose his balance and fall on her. She is getting irrtated with this and has started pushing him to get him away from her. Well now he wants all the toys she is playing with. This house is FULL of toys but I think now that he sees what can be done on two feet he wants to be doing what she is doing. So he walks over to her and trys taking her toy which is only leading to more pushing and now hitting.
Its driving be bonkers and im losing my patience which I really hate. I dont like getting irriated with the kids.
Im not sure how to handle it. Noah and I have talked about it and we partially feel Mad is alittle a right bc he will not leave her alone ..ever....But it dosent mean she can hit and push. The funny thing it too she only does it to him. Any other kid can come up and take her toy or crowd her and she is fine with it.
Today she even tried giving him a different toy so he would leave her alone. it was so cute she grabbed one of her other toys and handed it to him and said here u go but he still wouldnt leave her alone.
Okay long vent over. Its just the next hurdle in motherhood for me
Welcome! This is what drives me nuts about my boys. The fighting. There can be a room full of toys but they want the same thing. And usually once they get it they dont want to play with it. If huge fights starts I usually take whatever it is away and nobody gets it. Soon as I do that they most of the time will just go on to something else. This afternoon in the tub they fought over a cup. Noah wanted it, Jack had it... and Noah ended up mad and like 2 minutes later Jack handed it to him and said "Here Noah." It was so sweet. He usually is the one who gives in more. Anyhow, on a positive note, with this soon follows lots of cute moments! The boys interact so much and my favorite thing is watching them interact and talk to oneanother and have conversations. It melts my heart.
I guess you just foreshadowed what is to come for me! Sorry you are loosing your patience. I know how you feel. I have been loosing my patience and getting frustrated with RIley more and more and I hate that I do that. Hopefully Carson will get tired of trying to steal her toys and figure out how to play with other things.
Ugh, happens here too. Lucky Emi is old enough to trick Katie into thinking some OTHER toy is really cool, and then Katie wants that one, so Em gets what she originally had LOL. Good luck, this too shall pass....
WTG Carson on walking! I am right there with you. Rachel started crawling and is up Troys butt! If Troy stops walking Rachel bumps into him. I've been trying to keep them seperate but its not happening.
brandon does the same thing as emi, he'll say, ''here, jack, play with this'' and jack is just as happy. we have more of an issue with brandon taking things from jack than vice versa. it is great when they play together though! that is very sweet to watch!
