My son – bless his little five year old heart – has made most of my pregnancy pretty tolerable. I have exactly three months left until “Little Sister” makes her appearance and “Big Brother” has let me nap extensively, brought me snacks, helped me with laundry and pretty much allowed me to be the lazy oaf that I’ve needed to be this past six months.
That said – I think he’s done with this pregnancy before I am – by a long shot! All the “niceness” has pretty much gone out the window this past couple weeks. I’m not sure if he’s just ready for school to begin (he starts Kindergarten in a couple weeks) or he’s just completely “over” the fact that in three short months he won’t be the “only” anymore.
Suffice to say – with this new and “improved” attitude – I’m ready to forgo local public school and send this kid to boarding school in England!
My sweet little boy has turned into a whining, complaining, unhelpful little snot and I feel like I am constantly giving him time outs or spankings! He refuses to take “no” for an answer (or even “not now”) which causes a lot of fights in our house. He wakes up some mornings in a bad mood and we haven’t changed anything about his daily life. Like I mentioned I’m not sure if this is caused by his boredom during the day, excitement and anticipation about school or his anticipation of being the “Big Brother” – I don’t know for sure.
But if this kid doesn’t chill out I’m not sure what I’m going to do. I need a total “time out” at this point.
