Right now, I hate parenting. I always, always try to be grateful for all that I have but right now...I find it hard
I have a three year ol son and a three month old daughter. Besides the regular stuff like breastfeeding, doctors appointments, cooking, cleaning, my son is so high energy, I plan an activity every day and my mom cares for the baby. Which makes him happy. But beyond that, he is oppositional, cries at the drop of a hat, bangs on stuff, hits me (not because he is trying to beat me, he thinks its funny)
He doesn't play with toys, he wants to go to playgrounds. He is speech delayed and I'm having him assessed by a developmental paediatrician in a few weeks. It takes him longer than his peers to learn things. I'm so tired of his constant weeping and defiance is getting to me! I also don't even know how to keep him engaged in activity all day while I care for a baby! Left to his own devices, he removes vents and shoves my shoes down them! Or rummages through drawers.
He is very good with language in terms of asking for things and making his needs known, not as good with the W questions. Who, what, when.....etc.
He starts a great nursery school program that specializes in kids with delays
I'm so tired and feel defeated.
