Please please please don't anyone ever look in the front window to see me holding my 35 lb toddler to the floor by his upper arms while resting a bit of my weight on his thighs. He'll most likely be screaming and wailing, and it's possible I'll be unhappy myself. It won't be a pretty sight, that's for sure...........
When my oldest was three, he'd throw big huge screaming fits - like for an hour or more. He'd kick and hit me unless I all but layed on him. I actually showed someone how to gently restrain their toddler for diaper changes b/c their toddler had started the whole "crocidile death roll" thing during each change. She thought I was a genius! LOL! But it was a cloth diaper she was changing, so does that make it more NFL?
I need a "Please don't judge me until you've lived a week in my house."
And I am totally lmao at Teh Assburgers. LMAO! Oh! Horrors! He has contracted Teh Assburgers! Quick, grab your tinfoil hats and back away from the microwave before you get it too!
