I can't even tell you how many timeouts were given today. The whining has reached an all time high, and the crying is insane!! I am at my wits end with this kid. I have done everything I can think of. And the real kicker is he tells me "Mommy I so mad!" While stomping his feet and walking away from me.
I needed a break so badly, I really needed to get away from this monster that has taken the human form of my son. I had to go to Target to return some shoes I bought for Aria, but decided to take him with me. I thought it would do both of us good to get out of the house (even though he helped me clean out the van today too and went for a walk). He was a perfect angel in the store, stayed by me the whole time, and even wanted to hold my hand. He was so good in fact that I bought him some popcorn on the way out. But the second we got home, it started all over again! Whining, temper tantrums, yelling. I locked myself in my room and left him with his dear old Daddy. He screamed for 15 minutes straight for me. It didn't stop until I opened the door and let him lay with me. He said "Mommy I need hugs."
I don't know how much of this I can handle. I am waiting for his head to start spinning in complete circles. We just need to get through dinner and bath-time. I am tempted to put this kid to bed at 6:00 tonight. I hope tomorrow is a better day.
