Mama said there'd be days like this...

Something went wonky with my blog today so until I can figure out how to fix it (which may be a while at my pace these days) it will just have to stay simple. Hmm, not sure what happened but it had some wacky colors for the background, etc. Missing my old header and such already!

Today was one of those days that was just full of mixed feelings and emotions. One moment all was going well and the next it was all falling apart. Great example...we had gone to story time at the library and they had fun and we even got to see some friends we haven't seen in a while (added bonus!). After we went and the boys wanted to look at books and then they spotted the computer. I can't keep them away from those things when we are there. They did fine and all playing on the thing it was just when they were wearing the headphones they would get a wee bit loud (although I shouldn't have minded as someone else had a screaming kid the entire time so I shouldn't have felt bad about them talking loudly I guess). So after a while I decided it was time to go. Enough computer.

Noah was okay with it, Cameron however was not. And he let me know. Every. Step. Of. The. Way. He has started this new thing that when he doesn't want to go somewhere he will lay down on the ground and not get up and walk. Oh my. Usually I just go with it and say whatever and make it into a game. But today just wasn't in the cards. So I picked him up kicking and screaming and carried him to the car. Noah was a perfect little child through all of this, which that in itself is very surprising. He used to join in as well. I think he takes after me. Anytime there was conflict in my family I would become super well behaved or when I got older, start cleaning for some reason. I was joking about this with the boy's OT and she said it was my way of "organizing" myself. Go figure.

So, we get in the car and Cameron is still doing the ear piercing scream. I finally get him calmed down and off we go. Everything is just about testing limits right now and two of them doing this at the same time is just wearing me out. I have lost all sanity at this point. Nothing is done anymore without checking at least a dozen times I am going to do or say the same thing these days. It is EXHAUSTING! I seriously don't know how people with lots of kiddos do this. I am losing my mind with just two of them.

Okay, enough whining from me for the day. My pity party is over for now. Tomorrow is a new day and this too shall pass.

I know it's hard--but it IS a lot about their age and trying to exert control over their environment. If I had it to do over again, I would blow off most of this. (at the time when Alison was having huge tantrums when I wouldn't buy her gum at the grocery store, it was a LITTLE more stressful)
