Ok, I dunno if it's only MY 4 year old or if it's the general rule of ALL 4 year olds but lately all mine has been doing is NAGGING, WHINING and being 100% IMPATIENT. She absolutely FLIPS OUT if you even take a breath before answering her nagging requests. It's not asking, it's NAGGING. The tantrums are the worst EVER. If she doesn't get the answer she wants or if she doesn't get IMMEDIATE attention she has a complete meltdown. I mean the kind that lasts over 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.
I am really exhausted today because of the meltdowns. She had 3 already and is gearing up, as I type, for a 4th. This time it's because she wants an ice-pop and I told her she'd have to wait until 6:30. It seems that even the slightest of things sets her off.
Ok now for the 2 year old. She is the most difficult child I have EVER had to take care of, EVER. I was a nanny for many years and this one takes the cake. She plays in KITTY LITTER, she pokes the dog in the butt, she puts her fingers in the dog's mouth, she colors on my walls and furniture and HERSELF, she tells me, when I tell her to STOP, "I'm just going to do it when you leave and I'm NOT going to cry!"
I am having a rough day over here and just needed to vent! Am I the ONLY ONE?!!!!!!
