A lot of my favorite blogs are moms/dads… I need your help PLEASE! Even if you aren’t a parent and have some advice for me I will take it.
My Daughter L turned 3 on Sept 17th and I also have an 8 month old son J.
L has always been way smarter than every other kid her age (No it’s not just me thinking it, it’s true). The things that she comes out with are stuff that 6 year olds do. It’s amazing and I am uber proud to call her my daughter. She is a great kid, beautiful inside and out and usually a pretty good girl. Yes she has thrown tantrums and she does yell and stomp her feet….she is human. I have to say though, ever since she turned 3 I don’t know what happened! She wakes up in the morning and is either in a great mood or is in time out within 30 minutes. The morning navigates my day and most days it hasn’t been good. To the point where yesterday she spent over an hour in her room with the door closed and screamed, threw things, pulled her sheets off her bed and cried for the entire time. Yes, I checked on her and asked if she was ready to say sorry and behave but, each time it was greeting with her yelling at me or screaming. After the crazy morning she was fine the rest of the day, little things here and there but that I can handle.
Today she has been amazing…woke up with a smile on her face wanting to play with her brother and just a pleasure to be around. Parents help me, help me understand what happens at 3. When did 3 become the new teenage years. Am I the only one that is having these issues? What do you do to stop the tantrums or get through the day.
Im as SAHM, I wouldn’t trade that for anything but there are days that I count down the hours until bedtime when I can just sit and not have to think.
Suggestions please… lets get a conversation going
