Oh, What to Do?





I think my blog is starting to sound negative. After I write this rant, I will write a whole cheerful post, just to prove I can do it. But for now...

Jackson wakes up every morning at 5:00 am. He usually can be persuaded to go back to sleep. Today he could not. I am tired. (Too tired to be clever in how I write that.) He is an adorable boy, but he is finding his temper (think THROW his head and arch his back and whack himself into whatever thing is nearby and blame it on mom). He loves to empty the dishwasher. He takes out items- usually glass dishes- and carries them around when I'm not looking. He climbs on top of his train table. He picks up wooden trains and hucks them at the wood floor. He crawls behind my computer and tries to unplug the cables. He doesn't like to sit in shopping carts anymore. He dumps my music books and rips the pages. He won't eat what he used to eat- he throws his string cheese, bread pieces and Cheerios on the floor. He naps for a grand total of about 40 minutes daily and goes to bed after my older kids.

He is beautiful and wonderful and adorable... but I'm losing my mind!

It's a good thing he IS so cute, or you might lose more than your mind.

I completely understand. Sophia was (is still somewhat) the exact same way.

He sounds like Kyler! Kyler can be such a mess maker! He is a whirl wind of destruction! And I can't get him to eat anything except blueberries and chicken nuggets! I hear your pain and frustration! But it is amazing how they can still melt their mothers' heart! Oh and Kyler goes to nursery in 2 weeks!

I'm with you. Joseph is almost two but we're having some of the same issues. There is hardly a night when one of our kids doesn't wake up. He likes emptying the dishwasher and other bookshelves, too. And it goes on and on, but it's 11:30 and I should get some sleep while I can!!!

At least you have some cute pictures of the madness! Someday, when you've found your mind again, you'll enjoy looking at those happy grins!

I think Heavenly Father made little kids super cute with adorable eyes for a reason!
