Default the fun parts of parenting

So we're just hanging around reading books and stuff, and I go to change B's diaper, and she goes from Dr Jekyll to Mr Hyde in like 0.2 seconds. She just starts screaming in this hysterical scream "No! Bailey Do! Bailey Do!" - til I say, okay, apparently it's time for bed. But the whole time I'm trying to get her in pajamas, or up the stairs or whatever, the WHOLE time she's screaming "Bailey Do! Bailey Do!" at the top of her lungs. Yet, when I try to let "Bailey do" she doesn't "do" she just continues this incessant screaming.

Seriously, for the entire, what, maybe 15-20 minutes that I'm going through this process she does not stop hysterically repeating this same scream. Through me trying to give her a drink of water, trying to talk to her and calm her down. Nope, nothing. I eventually just picked her up and put her in bed (yes, still screaming), and covered her up - thank God she stopped once I left the room.

And I haven't heard a peep since.

Ah, toddlers.

We have this candy dish full of Valentine M&M's right now, and she pushes her chair over to the table and climbs up to get herself some M&M's. The daily dose of chocolate is making her incredibly active during the day, and falls into meltdown by nap or bed time.

Two days of that was enough. We moved the candy dish.

Temper tantrums. The main thing I don't miss. You know how they say count to 10 before you react. I must have counted to at least 150. Then I would have to lock myself in the BR or washroom because I was still so stressed out I was ready to explode.

You know...that's how my first son potty trained himself at under 2 years old. I went to change his diaper, he screamed "Ryan DO!" I said "go ahead", and he laid down on the floor and did a pretty good job of it. I figured any kid who could change a diaper, could certainly use the potty. So, I told him diapers were all gone and he had to use the toilet. He did. He trained himself in one weekend.

Maybe you should come over and train my daughter, then. I KNOW she can do it, but when I offered her underwear, she screamed "NO! I not wear this pants. I want my diaper". THat was absolutely her longest sentence ever.

Toddlers are fun :P

She'll also tell me it's not her diaper that stinks, it's her shoe, her brother, her stuffed animal...

Oh no. I learned my humility lesson with my second son, who didn't pottytrain til he was nearly 4. I didn't train my first son, he trained himself.

I don't know what it is about M&M's but when my sister was like 3 or so we had an M&M dispencer and we had to finally get rid of it because the M&M's turned into a demon child. Once she stopped eating them she was fine she wasn't allowed to have themthe rest of her toddler/preschool years

I completely understand how kids can switch we have this niece who when she's with us is such a good kid but as soon as her mom walks in the door to pick her up this little switch in her head goes off and she turns into this girl I can't wait to get out of my house. I don't know what it is about her mom but it's like split personalities.

Mine napped for 45 minutes today. She usually sleeps 2 hours. Now she's begging to go to bed and it's barely 6:00. I just don't feel like getting up at 5 tomorrow morning. The queen shall wait....
