I'm assuming that's what this is.
Came in with a fury, seemingly out of nowhere. Not even on my radar.
And the bonus? So far, it appears to be directed solely at me! Joy!
And if screaming & crying & throwing tantrums aren't enough... we've started hitting & pulling hair! Weeeeee!
And just general nastiness.
This morning started off great. Happy FireGirl & happy mommy. Ended with a battle of wills. Yes, mommy managed to pull out a win. Barely. But the kind of "win" where you end up badly bruised & exhausted by the end. And late for work.
At least the hitting & pulling hair is reserved strictly for me, and not for the other kids in nursery or at preschool, right? That's a good thing, right?
Oh, the would-have-been-funny-if-we-hadn't-been-fighting-for-so-long-already moment? She found her Halloween candy and asked for M&Ms. Specifically, two. I told her she had to ask nicely. After a lot of crying. She finally said "Peeeeeeeese!"
I accidentally poured three into my hand, and instead of putting one back, I told her since she asked so nicely she could have three, and proceeded to put all three M&Ms into her hand.
She cried. Screamed. And threw the M&Ms, while yelling "Twooooooooooo!"
Apparently she really wanted TWO, not three. Silly mommy.
This is gonna be a long year, isn't it?
