View Full Version : Ever had one of those days???
My normally fairly pleasant 3 year old DD has spent all day whinging at me. She has not actually spoken to me all day, only whinged. She has been fine with everyone else.
For the last couple of days, everytime I go out of site, she wails 'mmmuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmyyyyyyyy' at me and gets all worked up until I re-appear.
Anyway, dinner and bedtime was a disaster, the only easy part was her bath!! She threw her dinner AT me, spat food on the floor, poured drink on the carpet and then when I sent her to her room she screamed at the top of her lungs for about 10 minutes. I went to talk to her after a couple of minutes but she just hid under her bed so I sat for a while but she wouldn't come out. I went back to check on her about 5 minutes later and she was asleep under the bed, when I tried to get her out she kicked, spat and tried to bite me - I left her there!! This is just not like her.
What I am getting at I guess is do anybody elses kids have REALLY off days?? I feel like a useless Mum today.... I don't like it :o
The sun will come out tomorrow.......hopefully it will shine on her......
i know the feeling, well kinda tyler is teething:eek: ,,, and all day well for the last week every time i try to do something tyler just screams,,, she just wants me to hold her [which im doin right now] dont get me wrong i look to hole her,,, but it gets a bit much
wow, substitute tyler's name for shayley and it sounds like my week. i know exactly how you are both feeling. its not a full moon is it?
I had this on Monday night with my nearly 4 yr old. Check out "my old life back" thread for the dramas and sagas .... and all this week really I have had a very whingy little boy and a tantruming little girl.
I put it down Monday to the weather making them REALLY tired. but this whole week?? Don't know.
i feel so bad for her,, not much you can do but give her teething gel and dymadon....
its exciting the thought of tyler getting her first tooth but just wish she did'nt have the pain
Oh eleanor, it is so nice to know that it isn't just my darling that has turned feral!!
I didn't even try to find a reason as nothing has changed and she was fine until today but maybe it is finally the sugar come down after christmas LOL.
No really, who knows what it is, I just hope it doesn't last too long - it was such a tiring day!!
I have these days quite regularly :eek:
Yes we have them too and these 'moments' are usually worse at the end of the day - arsenic hour.
We have arsenic hour daily but usually the girls are just sooky not psycho!! Thank goodness DD2 was an angel.
Glad to know I am not alone...
I just logged on and saw this post and boy am I having one of those days today :eek:
DS (19mo) had a huge day yesterday - obviously overstimulated, so rather than sleep through the night woke every hour or so sobbing, then eventually up at 5am, so the whoe family is zonked. We had to take DH to hospital for an op this morning, and DS went totally feral in the ward - running into all rooms, pushing buttons, generally causing havoc. I had hands full with all DH's valuables that he wouldn't leave at home but couldn't keep with him :rolleyes: so was dropping phones, wallets, keys etc, while trying to grab monster....
Then on the way out the door (back through the full waiting room) he decided to make a final dash for it, and ducked under the chairs, where he crawled under everyones legs like through a tunnel popping his head out through strangers legs, then ducking back in before I could quite catch him. And its only 9.30am - if I wasn't pg i think I'd have a drink!!
Lucky he's adorable :rolleyes:
Sorry for the vent - but it felt great!
Glad you feel better snoozy.
Well DD1 has been a lot better today, thank goodness!! DP got up with them this morning and I slept until 11 :eek: Things don't seem so terrible after a good nights sleep. Hopefully when DP goes fishing this afternoon, the little monster won't resurface - fingers crossed!! Usually she is a terror for dad and an angel for me but the last couple of days she has done an about face and has been giving me the 'treatment' :rolleyes:
Wow...... You're not alone that's for sure!! I was in a bundle of tears today after about the 8th temper tantrum (this was the most severe though) from DD. She awoke at 3.40am this morning and would not go back to sleep.......so it had already been a LONG LONG day! The 8th TT came at about 3pm.....and I just crumbled under pressure. Have been trying to do "planned ignoring"...have tried the "cuddle till she's finished", etc... but to no avail. Yup...everything go's goop after a day like this. I felt like such a failure and wondered what I was doin wrong and all that stuff that you go through emotionally when you're sleep deprived and exhausted and trying to deal with a cyclone-like emotional toddler!! However, I know that it's all a part of their ability to separate from us and define their own little selves....so more power to em......I guess :)
Anyway, my heart is with ya sweet and I hope today was much better for you.
Thanks Electra, I hope tomorrow is better for you :)
We are moving house tomorrow so it will be interesting to see how she behaves during all the commotion, she'll probably want to help everyone with everything!!
I should probably be packing boxes instead of being on here...oops!!
