Who else is in the middle of this stage with their child? It seems to have hit us all of a sudden. Again. Boundaries being pushed. A tantrum for this, a tantrum for that. Unnecessary anger. Is it because he’s tired? Does he need a little break from all the learning? Is it all just too much for him. Is he aware that Big Boy School is fast approaching? Am I being over sensitive?
It’s rather tiring for all of us. Even ignoring these silly little moments is tiring. The issue is that Lil G and I are very alike. He has my personality that’s for sure. Just last week Mr H found himself mediating over a simple arts & crafts session. He’s a toddler! Eek.
50 shades of grumpy is THE perfect description for my 3.5 year old who currently has the mood swings of a teenager. What mood will he wake up in today? What little thing will tip him over the edge? Yesterday it was his sword. Oh yes. A sword. I refused to let him take his wooden shield and sword to Kindergarten. He went on to walk down the street stomping, growling, shouting. Oh the joys. Thankfully there are far more good days than Grumpy days.
I once referred to our little monkey as a Threenager and I was right to do so. Forget the terrible twos it is the Threenager in your child which you should worry about. And to think that the Teenage years are still to come! Eek.
Grumpy grey, Grizzly grey, Growling grey. So many grumps.
Dear Mr Grumpy Pants … snap out of this phase. Bring back our gorgeous boy. Our easy going child. The one who makes me laugh for the right reasons. We have so many exciting things planned for you this year kid. It really is going to be EPIC. But first STOP with the Mr Grumpy Pants.
