To say that we have been pretty lucky with Logan’s temperament since birth is probably an understatement. I’ve always said that his personality is split straight down the middle of Myself and Matt. He has Matt’s chilled out, laid back approach to life but he has my Temper and dramatic’s.
When Logan throws a tantrum we don’t get fake crying noise we get full on tears, every time, without fail. Lately this seems to be a more regular occurence, the tantrums that it. He could be laughing his head of one minute and the next you ask a question and he’s in a full-blown tantrum. This has been going on now for week’s. Some days I could cry or pull my hair out. Everything seems to be an issue and don’t get me started on his eating or should I say lack of.
I know the eating is just a phase and throw teething and colds into the mix and well, hello stressed tired Mummy and Daddy. I can’t remember the last time Logan woke in the night and settled back to sleep in his own bed. It’s a point where I’m desperate for him to resettle again in his bed but I’m so tired and stressed out that I just want to sleep so the easiest solution is to bring him into our bed. I know there is probably a bunch of you out there screaming “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” But my day starts anywhere between 6am and 7am. Once I’m ready I look after Logan till I need to get ready for work ( I start at 5:30pm so that means getting ready at 4pm, between 4:30 and 5pm I’m looking after Logan again. I go to work and get home around 9pm ish, I eat and have a drink and then it’s quite often time for bed. Lately I just don’t have the energy to persist with controlled crying.
I also want to get Logan to give up the dummy especially now that he’s starting to talk more. That is a battle I’m not looking forward to, Logan loves his dummies. We also need to start thinking about potty training Logan this year too. It feels like it’s never-ending at the moment and with all this Logan throws anywhere between 10 and 20 tantrums most days.
You know how when you first have your new-born baby and it’s those early weeks where you’re emotional and you feel like a crap mum and that you’re doing everything wrong. Well, I’m back in that state of mind at the moment. The tantrums and the crying is just relentless at the moment and he isn’t even two yet. I love that Logan is strong-minded and has his own mind and everything but not when it comes to the Terrible Two’s.
So Could This Be The Start Of The Terrible Two’s? Watch this space I’m sure as we get into the full-blown terrible two’s there will be posts and funny pictures galore.
