Good lord have they hit with gusto! He used to be so well behaved but all of a sudden, when he doesn't get what he wants or doesn't want a nap he turns into something out of the exorcist! It's always either end of the spectrum. There is NO middle ground with him. He is either an angel or a child possessed. Like right now, he's down for a nap so we can take him out to the park for lunch and he is not having it. He is screaming like I beat him with a red hot curling iron! He has NEVER acted this way for nap. I'm about ready to sound proof his room.
It's even worse because he is smart. He has figured out that he can get onto the counter if he pushes a chair over to it. We had made two cherry pies for MIL's Barbecue and they were on the counter wrapped up to go. I told DS he would have to wait to have a piece until we were at the barbecue. I was in the bedroom folding laundry and I come out to see the pie on the floor. "How did you get the pie down!" And he stomped on it!
I know the time outs are working and he'll get past this but some days I just want to lock him in his room, put a pillow over my face and screeeaaaam!
Just wanted to vent and maybe hear some stories so I know I'm not alone.
