My husband is being ridiculous lately! He's acting like a two year old and we already have one two year old in the house. Whenever I'm on the computer he will sit next to me and push buttons on my keyboard while I'm typing, pressing the sleep mode button and then our son starts doing it too. I've always gotten our son's attention by saying hey and all of a sudden he'll chime in "is for horses". I put him in time out for hitting his dad and he goes over and gives him cuddles because he's upset and gets him out. If I tell him no and he throws a tantrum hubby starts fake crying at me and goes "Oh whyyyy? Why would you do that to him? wahahaha." I'll take the time to make everyone a nice home made dinner and then I make every plate look nice for him to grab ds plate and go "Here buddy. Look what I made you." Our son who is usually sweet, well behaved and good natured has become violent, he screams for attention, throws tantrums at bedtime, throws things and always makes messes. I know dh putting in his two cents after everything I tell ds is why he's behaving this way but no matter what I say or how many times I talk to him and tell him how it makes me feel he brushes it off and blows me off saying he's just playing and our son (who doesn't talk yet) doesn't even understand what he's saying. Just because he doesn't know the words doesn't mean he doesn't understand what you're doing. He know's you're undermining me and then he thinks because daddy laughs at mommy he can laugh at mommy and not listen too. I'm at a loss. I've been crying since I put ds to bed (dh works nights) because I don't know what to do to fix this. I'm 18, dh is 22. Why do I always have to be the adult? I don't get to have fun with them anymore because I'm always yelling, disciplining, cleaning, cooking or trying to get schoolwork done. (online college courses) How do I get through to him? What can I do? I just really need some support here.
Advice and kind words are appreciated.
Thanks mamas :(
