One of those days

So far today, my darling first-born son has:

– refused to eat the lunch his uncle cooked while we visited his cousin for a playdate;

– wiggled, wriggled and tipped over backwards in his chair at the same lunch, breaking the chair in the process;

– said he thought I should go away;

– refused to eat the dinner I cooked, or even try a single bite;

– said he didn’t like his little brother; and,

– made such a general pest of himself that I am now hiding in the computer rather than deal with it.

It’s just a phase, right? RIGHT?!

Sigh…

But PS – I had a blast at the party yesterday!! Thanks to all who played along!

We had a VERY similar day with twin B…better check your moon cycle or star (mis)alignment or something.
I can only hope along side you that it is only a phase, but not sure just how accurate my 10 day rule will fit with this one.

Sorry I couldn’t make the party, either–and I’m sorry I can’t offer you anything but commiseration–last night was a rough one in our house, too. My eldest has taken to knocking the baby down as he’s trying to pull himself up. And then 2 minutes later he’s calling the little one “my bootiful baby”. I don’t get it at all.

SIGH Yes Dani…As a mother to a monster preschooler it does get better but only after you ahve disowned the child 650 times in the next 2 years. I even asked for help awhile back and it seems to be working. I hope it keeps up.
