Sigh.

by verdemama on April 8, 2011

I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know that I did not, in fact, go into labor early or fall into a deep Rip Van Winkle-like sleep (although that sounds divine). No, I’m still out riding in crazy toddler country, and I’m holding onto my sanity by a slim thread.

Wednesday of this week was a total anomaly — Orion was cooperative and delightful, and we had a wonderful day together. I thought we had rode out the tsunami of his recent Jekyll/Hyde behavior, but it was merely an ebb in the Terrible Two tide. He’s been nuts every other day this week — moody and defiant, with some violent tendencies thrown in for extra flavor. He doesn’t want to get dressed or leave the house and he has been refusing to nap (or to do anything I ask or tell him to do, for that matter). I had a full-on crying breakdown this morning — not one of my finer moments but I’m sure I’m not the first pregnant mom of a toddler to lose her shit after a long stretch of frustrating behavior.

A miracle happened this afternoon and he actually went down for his nap without too much fight. I’m now enjoying a much-needed moment of peace.

I know there are bigger problems in the world right now, but this is really wearing me down. I know his behavior stems from a combination of his recent weaning, the hubbub surrounding his soon-to-be baby sister, and the good ol’ terrible twos rite of passage. Still. FRUSTRATING. CLAW EYES OUT.

Please tell me this gets better. Right?
