Another awful day...

Tony asked me what happened today and this is what I had to say:

What happened?
Spencer was eating his lunch and I told him if he ate 2 more bites of chicken nuggets then we would watch the rest of the fishy movie. (Tony & Spencer started watching this documentary called Deep Blue Sea the other night and didn't finish it because Spencer kept yelling at Tony.) He finished his nuggets, meanwhile I fed Tatum. As soon as he was done he came over to the couch and he demanded fishy movie. I told him I needed to finish what I was doing first (I was deleting dumb shows off the Tivo that it had recorded). He yelled no at me. I told him he needed to stop telling me no all the time and that it made me sad. He told me no to that. I said if he told me no one more time he would get a timeout. He yelled no.

Time out began. Time: 12:57pm

He wouldn't sit in his chair and called me stupid.

Soap in the mouth.

I told him not to put his hand in his mouth and then in his eyes. He did it anyway.

Got soap in his eyes.

I stripped him down so his clothes wouldn't get all wet. I put him in the tub and started to rinse his eyes to get the soap out. (He's screaming and kicking the entire time mind you.) I put his pullup (now close to nap time) and clothes on and he's screaming about the pullup the entire time and has to be restrained on the floor to put his clothes on kicking and screaming. I put him back in time out.

Won't sit down.

I tell him to either get in time out or I will take a toy away. He won't get in time out. I proceed to take his toys out of the room and into our room one at a time each time telling him to sit in time out or I take another toy away. This proceeds for 20 minutes and still will not sit in time out even though I have taken pretty much all of his toys out of the room. I get the booster seat out of the garage and strap him in. He has a complete melt down and kicks & screams and spits and yells whilst trying to get out. That goes on for what seems like forever.

He is finally quiet and I go in and he has gotten out of the chair somehow and is standing by his bed. I say that's it, time for bed.

He won't go to bed.

Every time I leave the room he gets up, turns the light on and opens the door to come out. (Meanwhile Tatum is screaming her head off because she is so tired and Spencer's too loud for her to sleep). I put him back in bed about 15 times before I say, fine I will put you back in time out. He screams no and says he wants to sleep. He is still screaming when I leave him in his bed at about to try and calm Tatum down & get her back to sleep. Time: 2:30pm

He woke up at 3:30 (If he even slept) and told me everything that had happened in the calmest sweetest voice he has.

But on a positive note, I totally made this really cool sling yesterday and it only cost me $8!

Melinda says she'd put him up for sale as well. If we decide to ever have kids now, that is.

Sorry you had two bad days in a row...that is miserable. I think naptime is the worst when the older one is screaming or being really loud and the baby won't sleep because of it. We had the same issue. Taylor eventually got better at sleeping during the noise. So, it does get better. I promise! Maybe tomorrow we can get together and let the boys go crazy....
