| Oh Waaaaaa!
|Ok wonderful Mommies of the internet I've got an issue.
The Battle: Jimminey Crickets does this seem worth a fight to you?
Time: Any time
Code Name: whiny cry-ie Tantrum Brat
Age: 3 years and 4 months (just about)
Height: Less than 4 foot
Code Name: Just knock it off already
Weight: Non of your Damned bussiness
Here's a Sample Play by Play
Parents are rushing to get everything together so they can get out the door.
Dad: Come one it's 7:45 already we have to go.
Mom: Come on Gabby put that toy down and put on your sweater it's kinda cold out right now.
Gabby: Sleeping Beauty come with me, Ok? Show and Tell.
Mom: No, put her down. Show and Tell is not today. Come over here we have to go.
Gabby: No she HAS to come. It make me feel better.
Dad: Were running late put that doll down now.
Gabby: Screaming and crying
And then another example is this morning at daycare.
I just finished giving her a hug and kiss and put her down and told her to get a puzzle and play with her friends. She says ok and then turns to go do just that, only instead of walking around the toy case she decides to climb up on and walk over the bucket of blocks. So I patted her bottom (I'd be surprised if she even felt it since it was light and she was a moving target) picked her up and put her back on the ground and told her that was bad you don't walk on toys and told her to walk around. She stood there for a moment trying to work up some tears and ignoring me so I told her again to walk around. She just stood there so I asked if she expected me to just let her walk on the toys and the little monster said yes. So I said I don't think so and send her around again. This time she moved and when she got to the end of the case she collapsed on the floor and started to cry. *eye rolling* Substitute teacher was oblivious to the conversation Gabby and I were having and was asking her what was wrong. I told her and the teacher said ok and backed off. I told Gabby to get up off the floor and when she did her crying turned to wailing and I sent her to the quite corner (aka time out). I said good bye apologized to the teacher and left.
I need help with this little miss winy butt before I string her up by her toes. Any suggestions.
Ignoring her doesn't work. Sending her to her room and giving time out don't work and Alex's approach is spanking and that doesn't work either.
Just Knock it off Already.
