My ds has always been a cuddler and very clingy, for lack of another word right now. I love to hold him and be mommy for as much as I can, but lately we are having a terrible time. I feel like we are spiraling out of control.
I am a passionate person I guess and I have been getting frustrated too easily. Ex. Today I kept ds out too long, knowing I should have taken him home for his nap. But I thought "we can handle one more greenhouse." Duh. He did fine at the greenhouse since he was helping to pick out plants for the garden and pulling the red wagon, but when we got home, all he!! broke loose. He simply could not calm down enough to take his nap even though I tried laying down with him. I was really looking forward to a nap myself since I am picking up dh at the airport at 11:30 pm. So I lost it and was screaming. I tried to walk away from him to cool down, but I couldn't leave him--or rather he wouldn't leave me.
I feel so bad every time we do this. I hate it. I also can't see outside my box right now to do a better job. Can someone help? We are working on #2 and I don't have the energy to do this with 2 children.
