My kids are very well behaved. They do what i tell them, they play together, theyre good in stores. They dont beg for things. Ive been very proud of them. Well this past week or so, not long after i found out im pregnant, its like theyve both jumped off the deep end at the same time. And i havent told them about the new baby, so its not anxiety about that. My 3year old never crys. Seriously he crys less than my 7 yr. old. All he does is whine and cry lately. He has been mean to his sister, thinks everybodys germs are on everything for some reason. He's been lying alot. I mean my baby is never like this. And my daughter, usually if he messes with her, she tells him to get out of her face. But lately shes been bawling her eyes out, and then kicking him. We went to get me some pants the other day, and they were falling all over the floor, being loud, running away from me. Totally not like them. Ive tried to get them out of the house, spend more time with them. Ive been feeling awful, and I let them sleep with me the other night thinking that may help, since my husband works nights. I thought maybe they havent been feeling well lately, but this has been going on for a couple weeks now. I cant handle them like this with another baby on top of it. I dont know whats going on with them. I need advice. Please. thanks.
They may sense a change in the air, who knows, but honestly, they are kids. They aren't supposed to be good little statues who sit in a corner and only do what they're told to. They are also not miniature adults. Be glad your kids are behaving normally, because yes, misbehavior IS also normal. The way they are acting is typical of kids going through different stages. Just be consistent in your rules and expectations (as is appropriate for their ages). And be easy on yourself -- first trimester is hard for all!
Thanks girls. I agree with you, I think its me not them. And they've been alot better the past few days. My mom offered to take them this weekend to give me a little break, so i can get some rest. I'm very thankful. *Hugs*
