So my daughter has been going through a contrary phase the past couple of weeks or so. Saying "no" to anything I would remotely intend for her to do (eat, change diaper, move from where she is sitting, etc). It has been a trying time to say the least, but I've been dealing with it by trying to keep her busy with fun activities and sneak food into her whenever I can. Well yesterday she slipped and injured her foot/ankle. Nothing is broken (x-ray and doctor exam), but it is definitely causing her discomfort and she cannot put weight on it. Which means that everything that frustrated her before is now a million times worse. And she has all this energy of a newly walking toddler that she cannot exert. Needless to say, we both had about 10 meltdowns each this morning.
Has anyone dealt with an injured toddler before? Any suggestions to make our way a bit easier until we get through this? Any suggestions on physical activities that don't involve walking to help her get some energy out? Anyone want to come over and give me a break?
