OK here is the situation. my dd (5) is driving me crazy today. All day NOTHING but whining, crying and fits. Screaming that daddy has the radio on, telling me that brother ruined her life. On and On! ALL DAY. She has been to the park, she has had my nephew over (he is 17) while I do homework and he played with her, I have played with her, daddy spent 2 hours before work playing board games with her. Today is a hard day as it is because dh works late (till 9). She has even watched a video. BUT she is soooooooooo bored and has "nothing to do". She has refused to eat anything all day (she wants me to go get her chips, white bread and cream cheese and I won't do it). I finally get her to drink some Ovaltine and eat a little cheese. Thats it.
So I go to the bathroom with ds and come back out. It's all quite. I finally find her behind her futon in her room with a box of "cinnamon toast crunch" that belongs to my sister/roommate.
I just had it. I put her to bed (very gently) 2 hours early explaining to her that I am frustrated and I think that she is tired. So now she is in her room alternating between saying "give me another chance" and "I want my daddyyyyyyy".
What should I do?
