First day back! Wish me luck!
I’m too excited/anxious to write anything useful today, so here’s a Sarah story:
I must have the MOST dramatic four year old ever…
All evening she’s been hitting her Emma, taking her toys, screaming when she can’t HAVE Emma’s toys, talking back, throwing things in the house, screaming loudly because Daddy is sleeping, knowing it’ll bring the wrath of Dad down on Mom. etc. She spent all of supper sitting in her chair screaming till her voice was hoarse (not gone… darnit.) because she didn’t like her food. Then when supper was over, she ran in circles around the kitchen and kept bumping into Ava’s bouncy seat, even after I told her to walk in the house. so yeah. rough night.
at 7:00, I’ve HAD IT. I know if this goes on much longer, I might be jailed for what happens next.
Whats a sensible Mom to do?
I sent her to bed early. She traipses upstairs, crying bitterly. I hear her throw herself on the bed and say:
“Oh! What have I done? WHAT HAVE I DONE?!”
and with one more loud wail… she fell asleep.
I guess she was tired?
