This morning I just can't handle it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/splat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="splat"><br><br>
So far he has hit me in the head with a kiddie broom, gotted into a box of truffles (took him maybe 15 seconds while I stirred potatoes), dumped his juice into various containers more than once, and basically is really pushing me.<br><br>
I, meanwhile (9 mos pregnant here, remember) have cried 2 or 3 times, called my DH once, been called back by DH once to make sure everything was ok, and have yelled more than I have yelled in a month. I have behaved worse than DS, I'm sure. But I don't know what to do! If we had a playyard or something, I swear I would put him in it with some toys and a movie and go int eh next room and just sit and try to get it together.<br><br>
Can't wait for the rest of this afternoon to pass until DH is off work so I can have some help, mostly for my own sake.<br><br>
Thanks for letting me vent, it sucks not having any friends out here! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">

This was TOTALLY me yesterday. Took me 45 minutes to get DD (17 mos) dressed. All I wanted to do was leave the house to meet a friend for dinner (otherwise I'd let her just be naked and not have a battle over it!). She cried, I cried. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: DH is out of town for a week and I was at my breaking point by late afternoon. No real advice, just commisseration. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> mama. Mothering a toddler is HARD some days.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> I completely understand. Sounds just like my ds,who's 2.5. Can you take him in the yard for a little while when it get's rough? I know when my kids are really losing it,and grating on my last nerve they seem to need to get out. It's a rough age! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

I'm due in may too (you should come to the Due date club--we'd love to comiserate with you) and my toddler is also. . .challenging my patience. I'm not a very patient person anyway, but it's hard. It's so hard. My back hurts (until a few days ago), moving is hard, wrestling a toddler is hard, cleaning is hard. I want to nest and have a clean house, but that is not going to happen (as my 2 year old drags out a box of small-parts toys and dumps it on the floor as I type).<br>
I hate yelling. I hate feeling mean to my kid. It did get a little better when I went to the chiropractor and my pain subsided, but still my fuse is most certainly shortened right now.<br>
Try not to feel too bad and take it one minute at a time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I screamed so loud at my ds this morning that my throat still hurts<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: another pregnant, tired mommy here. My son is so forgiving...bless his heart.

Another pregnant momma with a toddler here. Yesterday my little guy:<br><br>
--Knocked over and broke the full length mirror in my bedroom. Now when I try to check out my enormous side profile, there are about two hundred little pregnant women staring back at me. And I can't figure out how I'm ever going to see my feet during this next month when I have a broken mirror?!<br><br>
--Sprinkled cinnamon sugar on the carpet while I was slicing up some pumpkin bread for his breakfast. Then he proceeded to dance in the "snow". Cute, but it also meant I had to drag out the vacuum, not something I'm keen on doing at this stage of pregnancy.<br><br>
--Decided that he would out run me at every opportunity (diaper changes for example) just simply because he can right now.<br><br>
I got him set up with the Cars dvd in the playroom so I could go upstairs and cry into the pile of laundry on my bed.

Thanks mamas for all the love. DS kept it up for DH when he got home, so at least I didn't just look crazy, DH got a little taste too. I think he's got allergies (like everyone else here)and so not sleeping real great. He was much better today!<br><br>
I just have to keep saying 4 more weeks until at least we have a change of pace and I won't be pregnant anymore! Of course, then I'll have 2 kids. Hmm. What HAVE I gotten into? AAAAUUUGGGHHHH :me freaks out all over again:
