My son is officially acting two. I was not so delusional that I thought I could get through unscathed, but this is ridiculous. It takes him 2 hours to get to sleep at night. He gets up 2 or 3 times in the middle of the night, climbs in my bed and then sleeps on my face. To add insult to injury; his 2-nap-a-day has gone to 30 minutes. With about an hour of drama before that. He punches, he hits, he whines and he refuses to eat. A completely different toddler within 2 days.
When I get this frustrated in a relationship, I like to break-up with the person. I imagine my current relationship problem could be dealt with like this:
Dear Toddler, I need to write this out so that I can get it all out before you interrupt me. First of all, you're great; you're going to go far in life. I truly want only the best for you. I just think we're in a different place right now, you know? It's not you; it's me! I just can't handle a serious relationship right now. I love you a lot, but I think I just need my space for awhile.
But, I won't write this. Instead, I will get up in the middle of the night and comfort him. I will make endless peanut butter and jelly sandwiches if that's all he'll eat right now. I will pray. I will call my Mother and cry. I will ask for advice on facebook. And I will get over it. Cause I'm the mommy now. And a 2-year-old will not best me...I hope...
Cheetos are calories, right??
