Mckinlee is at a tough age right now. Really really tough. She basically cries all day every day, will not let me out of her sight, and continues to cry. I'm about to loose my mind. I love her to death, but she is about all I can handle right now...
Compared to Caleb she has always been "my difficult one". She has a firecracker, strong willed, fearless personality, and is so up my booty that I can't get anything accomplished. This is all now combined with the early toddlerhood stage of wanting independence, testing limits, frustration because they can not communicate and tantrums. Literally I feel like I may get one hour total during the day (aside from nap) where she is happy.
Also, even though she cries when I leave her, she isn't a fuss with other people like she is for me. Nick tells me how she happily played and laughed for him the whole time I was away, an. as soon as I come through the door she starts screaming again....! I am left with a big question mark as to why to do??
I know that this is a hard stage, and I know that it does get easier, but I do lt always know that I am going to get through the day. I ignore, I cuddle, I put her in time out, I hold her......nothing works. She screams if you give her what she wants, and she screams if you don't. Basically my day is filled with her following me around screaming as I care for 5 kids, and try to maintain a house. I know this too shall pass, but for the first time since I became a mom I am actually wishing for her to be a little older......(sorry for the vent).
Kinlee know mama loves you no matter how you act, but I may secretly wish a daughter just like you upon you! ;)
