Hello ladies!! I'm pretty new, so let me start this off on a good foot.
I love my family. I love my children. They are the reason I breathe, and they are everything to me, no doubt about it.
I just need to VENT!!!!!!!
I have 3 kids: Twin boys, Donald and Mitchell who will be 2 in August, and Kaitlyn who is 5.
The boys are what I can only describe as a little...um..."emotionally immature". They haven't quite learned to communicate yet. They say a few words, and I think they understand what you are saying the majority of the time. But lately, it has become increasingly frustrating for them (and me!) that they cannot communicate what they want. They still scream and grunt for things, even though I try giving them words to replace the grunts!! I guess they just don't want to deal with learning it. And if I don't understand what the grunt means, all holy hell is going to break loose!! I will admit that I think they ARE spoiled. It is OUR fault. It's just been easier with the 2 of them (up until this point) to give them what I know it is they want. But now their demands are more specific. (The other night, one of the twins was actually freaking out about wanting parmesan, YES PARMESAN on his spaghetti!! I only figured it out because I was putting it on mine and just decided to try giving him some in hopes that we would shut up!!LOL) .I don't know what to do about these double trouble tantrums. I feel that as their communication gets better, so will the tantrums. Until then....I'll be here....GOING. FREAKING. CRAZY.
I feel a little better, thanks for listening!
