Just when everything starts to finally seem under some control BAM they are back at it again (Maxx and Mason). These guys just dont stop!! They are usually really good until older brother comes home from school and then starts all the fighting. The twins are really close and dont like the competition I guess. Maxx threw another one of his fits tonight. When he get's mad he runs around biting his brothers or he smacks the he!! out of me. It got so bad yesterday I had to smack his butt (which I hate to do), but he was out of control. I told him it was bed time and he just walked up to me as quiet as could be a smacked me across the face. This kid has got some serious attitude. Well I shut the door to his bedroom with him in there for a time out and Mason starts to cry and throw a fit like I am hurting his brother. Lately I have been sick which is making all this even harder on me. I just wish these two could get their act together. I always say it's because they are still babies, but they will be 3 on 02-02 and I think they are old enough to know better. Yesterday it was the poop on the wall AGAIN, half a bag (55 pound bag) of dog food spread throughout the living room and hallway. Today it is telling me NO over and over and over again, and the hitting me. And these guys are sooo.... impatient. If they ask for juice and I say yeah just hold on ONE second they both start to throw a fit. Everything has to be done right that second.
WHEW!! LOL, o.k. I guess I feel a little better now! I needed to get some of this off my chest! Thanks to anybody who made it this far, lol!!
Trust me I sympathise, the girls can be so mean to each other. I don't have to deal with the hitting other than on accident but I know how much those little hands can hurt. I don't know what to say about the tantrums, when the girls throw one I put them in their crib or I ignore them. That is what I did with Krystle and until recently it worked great. The thing that really gets me with the girls is fighting over one chair when there are two or pulling each others hair because the other one has the same exact toy they are playing with.

LOL!! I wish I could undertand this!! I give Mason a sippy with a red lid, but he wants maxx's sippy with a blue lid (same sippies different color lids). Maxx wont give up the blue lid sippy so I take Mason's and put a blue lid on it and he STILL wants Maxx's. Same goes with their toys.
Boy can I sympathize! It doesn't matter if its the exact same sippy or toy or one of the 8 metal bowls I have, they want what the other has. And they will push and pull hair to get it. Nikolas will take Andrew's sippy out of his mouth and run. Sometimes they care and sometimes they don't. I'm starting to deal with the hitting me too. When they don't get their way they scream at me and hit me. I'm really not sure what to do about it. I've been grabbing their hands and saying no very loudly. for now that seems to do the trick. Once they start saying no I suppose that will be over. Mine have no patience either. Take lots of deep breathes. Try not to hyperventilate. LOL!!!
