Help me! My 3 yo is a handful (that is putting it nicely). She comes with me to work, and lately she has been just a nightmare. I spend the entire time taking her to the bathroom and getting her snacks that I don't get anything done. I leave frustrated and angry. I would like to work from 8:30 til 12, or so. I don't expect her to stay at my office for 9 hours, or anything like that.
She usually watches a movie in the morning (but she won't sit through it anymore), then we have art stuff or books and snacks. We have tried to bring toys from home, but she doesn't touch them. She doesn't really ever play with toys. She only wants to do what I am doing. At home, she cooks with me, washes dishes, gardens, etc. But at work, I need two hands to type emails and my whole darn brain to think. I can't have her do it with me.
Most of the snacks she can get herself, but won't. My dh is there too, but she freaks out when he tries to help her. He is super involved, so it's not that they need more time together. She is just having a hard time becoming her own little person, I think.
