From time to time I really struggle with my eldest child. Like last night, my husband was gone helping someone move, he came home and asked something, I said there was lots of tears, screaming, yelling and crying. On both sides. Once I got him in bed, I thought about what was going wrong. Here is what I realized, I have no idea what to do with a three year old. I also really really liked my nieces and nephews from about 12 months, until three years, once they started talking they were old news and someone else should play with them. And now I've hit that point with my own child, and there is no one else to take care of him. I have no earthly idea what the heck you do with children that speak, with preschoolers. They talk so much and make so much noise they drive me crazy.
Long story short, I realize why we are struggling with the computer. I don't know what to do with him, if he is off the computer he follows me around whining basically saying he is bored without using those words. (What am I going to do when he is a TEENAGER?!?!) He is no longer content to let me make his choices, he thinks he should decide what happens in his life, didn't he get the memo I'm the mom?!?! I also can't handle N babe crying and his whiny talking at the same time. So I fall back on the computer. Anyway, I don't think I really want to post this but yet I'm going to press the orange button.
