    The laughs and giggles have certainly brightened up my day and stopped me from pulling my hair out!

    But again... another one!

    DD: a lion mummy (shes is playing with her toy laptop)
    Me: ooohh a lion
    DD: A Lion Mummy!
    Me: Yes a lion (including the roar!)
    DD: A giraffe mummy
    Me: A giraffe, that's awesome
    DD: A Giraffe Mummy!!

    and this went on for several more animals that came up on her game until I got frustrated and suggested she go watch Mr Maker!

    here's me.... pulling hair out!

    Dd1 who is 3:
    mum, mummy, mum, mumma, ma, Mummy, MUM etc...!

    Me: What!?

    dd1: i love you.
    (She does it on purpose to annoy me but knows the "I love you" won't get her in trouble)

    dd2 who is only just 2: was quite sick recently, I squirted her medicine in her mouth, she then looked at me and spat it in my face!

    Both of them fight getting their pj's on after a bath, have to nudie run.

    Ds1 is behind in speech so he doesn't nag but I am so sick of hearing NO. It's his answer to everything!

    Hahahaha. DD also says 'no way!' With a huge frown. No idea where she picked it up.

    Dd is 3 but she is going through a stage of mumbling questions (on purpose) anyone else's child do this?
    It flicks my b!tch switch something shocking.

    Like this morning.
    Dd- "mum, can I have an orange" said in some stupid underwater mumble.
    Me- "what? I can't understand you when you talk like that, speak up!!"
    Dd- "but I like to talk that way" said in a normal voice
    Me- "well no one can understand it, what were you asking?"
    Dd- "can I have an orange" said in the underwater mumble crap again.
    UGH!!

    I ended up telling her I was going to Ignore her when she spoke like that.
    I should pick my battles better because I spent an hour trying to look unfazed and trying to outwardly pretend she was invisible whilst I 'read a book' all whilst she sat next to me all up in my face mumbling the orange request...

    I also swear she plots her next moves.
    She will be happy and quiet playing, so I think, great! I'll go call that person back who called 3 days ago, BAM the moment the call connects it's 1000 questions for mum.
    Same with reading a book, the shower... You know... Only for stuff that I can benefit from.
    Or when DH gets home and she ignores him and will act as though the activity she was doing was the most important thing in her little world and we mustn't disturb that.
    20 minutes later I'm half way through a great conversation with DH about his day or my day and she will come over and sh!t all over any possibility of us finishing our conversation by demanding his full attention, 1000 questions again, sooking/clingy and just being a pest!

    Soooo many things lately! I swear my eye has a twitch, I can feel it... It's close to that vein near my temple that's about to explode, I'm calling it the "dealing with bullsh!t vein" yes, that's it's new name and it's about to explode and cause a sh!t storm with my sanity that makes mummy go a bit batty until bed time.
    ----------------------------
    P.S just so you all know, this post took me 45 minutes to write. During that time I've been interrupted with odd requests, questions she knows the answers to and tantrums over things that never phase her... It was also the dogs dinner time and she took his bowl and tried to put it somewhere different (which she has been told daily not to do for the past year and a half) and she tripped, smashed the bowl and got rank dog food mush all over her hands and top then went all 'end of the world' whilst the dog licked it off her...

    My DD is just over 2, and she does almost pretty much the same thing! Although she can do 'by mybelf' and I rarely have to help her these days... BUT I swear her life is currently on slow motion. I take DH to and from the station every day and just getting her in and out of the car for those 2 short trips is driving me batty. I have to start heading downstairs to the car nearly 10 min before DH even needs to be ready, because that's how long it takes for her to get in the darn car!

    open the front door to the house.... stands there like a statue
    head down the stairs..... pauses at every little puddle of water or mud
    I open the car door for her to get in........ stops at the door and slowly starts getting in, pausing along the way to tell me something or look at something or hand me whatever toy she is carrying to hold or have a whinge...
    Still waiting while she takes her sweet a***e time to climb up and I still have to prompt her to GET IN THE CAR!!!!! I swear its a game now for her! and that's just even more infuriating!

    We had a total meltdown at dancing this afternoon. She wanted to hide behind the see through blind, i refused to let her cue a legs don't work anymore total meltdown. We try to enforce if you're not going to participate you need to sit on your spot but the next activity would have meant she got stood on so I moved her out of the way. She just laid on the floor watching, I wasn't allowed to touch her or she would start crying. Then when they were giving out stickers she crawled over to her spot and gave the teacher a big smile. Oh it was a total nightmare - and my mil and sil were there to witness it all cause I will be away next Friday and they are taking her for me so no doubt they're dreading it.
