Everett is doing me in! I've got him on a fairly regular tylenol schedule because of the surgery but he's a demon child. If he doesn't get his way he's flipping out. Bedtime has been a nightmare the last 3 days. I am trying very hard to keep my patience, but DH and I have had to tag in/out during a bedtime b/c the other was about to lose it with him! I know there's no real solution, we are staying consistent with routine and discipline even with him pushing boundaries, it's just frustrating.
I keep looking at Dalton thinking that once we are through it with EJ we will have to start all over with him and I'm already dreading it!
Blair keeps saying the same thing . Actually lately August has been pretty good but for at least the first 4 months of Max's life August was SO amazingly difficult I thought I was going to lose my mind.
Sorry the tubes are having the opposite affect on him
We had a bad phase where Stephen would not go to bed forever!!! It got better, we just stayed consistent. I feel your pain...don;t give in!!! I almost lost it the other day when Stephen had the worst tantrum ever at target!!!!!!!!! OMG...
Amy, I know your frustration! Do you think part of EJ's behaviour is partly related to having a sibling now? Unfortunately I have no suggestions for you, but if I find some magical cure that works with Josh, I will share it with you
Lindsey I really think it's a combination of everything. He's had an ear infection since D was born too. So. . .he's sick, he's 2, he's got a baby brother to share attention with. . . it would make me grumpy too. If Dalton wasn't so easy I'd probably have to start drinking. I was talking to my mom and said everything started January 17th lol, but I know it's a combination of everything. I started the antibiotic ear drops for him thinking maybe they are bothering him more than he is telling me, and I'm being very consistant with pain meds in the day time.
