Terrible 3's, OMG!
My son is driving me insane. He is being so bad. I got up early today and asked him what he wanted for breakfast so that I could make him a nice hot meal before pre-school. I was smiley and happy, and thought that the day was going well. Then, when breakfast was served he didn't want that. He didn't want to get dressed, he wanted to play with play dough. He wouldn't wipe his runny nose with a tissue, he used his hand and got snot all in the Play dough. I had to throw it away. Of course that brought on the screaming again. He screams for no reason. If you beg him not to scream, he screams louder and wakes up the whole family. It doesn't seem to matter if you do something nice for a 3 yr old, they do things to tick you off anyway. ARGHHHH! I gave hime a spanking after he threw the play dough container and kicked a toy across the room. What a lovely way to start the day. He sasses back even when he knows he is gonna get in trouble for it. I can't win.
Is the normal for all 3 yr olds? When does it stop? Am I going to go insane?
