Toddler Taming

I’m not sure if Charlie has had a challenging week simply because he’s 3 and pushing his boundaries or is aware of having less attention since Grandma & Grandad left last weekend but whatever the reason he is testing my patience to the absolute limit.  I may have a selective memory but I don’t remember Ella behaving in this way or at least not as extreme.  Everything peaked on Thursday, here’s a rundown of some of his activities:

– intentionally breaking Ella’s toy hospital

– taking Poppy for a ride on his train tracks (naturally she toppled backwards and bumped her head)

– stuffing an entire roll of toilet paper down the toilet

– drawing all over himself and the stair gate

– stuffing his t-shirt, shorts and undies down the toilet

– picking his balance bike up and throwing it over a wall into a garden

– above followed by a complete tantrum when I refused to go and get it for him

All I can say is I was so glad when Alan came home from work that night!!!  The joys of parenting I guess……

    Uh-oh! Sounds like my house on a daily basis…except for the toilet part. Maybe look into getting a toilet lock?
    Hopefully you are right and it is just a tough week with your parents being gone. Hang in there!!
