Really? With the Whining? And the Screaming?

Whenever our schedule changes, or a vacation goes on a bit too long, or we return to routine, or the moon is in the seventh house, or the cat walks through the room, or he wants to laugh in the face of my praise over his accomplishments....George regresses a bit.

Now, academically, he's doing great, retained his skills through the vacation, teachers are pleased, I'm still happy with all the words and full sentences I'm seeing and hearing. But behaviorally, George is, shall we say, a bit of a challenge these days. I don't think he's doing much worse than any of the Kindergarteners this week, as they all adjust once again to early mornings and structure. But when George doesn't want to do something he gets loud.

George, time to get dressed.
NO, Mom, NO! Just keep playing! Aaaarrrrrggghhh!!!!
Here, George, the toy you were looking for.
No, Mom, not Thomas, I want Transformer! Aaaarrrrrgggghhhh!!!!
Wait your turn in line, Buddy.
EEAaahhhhhiiiiiiaaarrrggghhhh!!!
Do you want an Oreo?
NO, Mom, no....YES, MOM, I WANT OREO! Aaaarrrrrgggghhhh!!!!

See? So. Much. Fun. He has a whine that seems to be the soundtrack to his days lately, a constant undercurrent that has the ability to shave my patience to bits in a matter of minutes. Even when it's not directed at something in particular, the sound is ongoing. I think it's like keeping a car engine warm. He maintains the sound so when he needs it to ramp up, he doesn't have to exert much effort.

So this week? I'm working on Maintaining Patience, on Not Locking My Child In His Room, on teaching him to Use His Words, on Not Locking Myself In My Room. (And, apparently, on Using Multiple Commas in Every Sentence.)

Next week: Teaching Children to Mix Mommy's Favorite Drinks. (Just kidding!) (Really!) (Maybe.)

Thanks for sharing, this made me laugh as I'm struggling with patience too at the moment.

17 days of Christmas break has now been followed by 5 days at home because of snow! Arrrgggghhhh...

Crazy that something you love so much can make you soooo mad at times isn't it? I think my daughter is hitting the terrible two's a few months early, her response to most questions at the moment is a very loud and resounding "NOOOOOOO!" which isn't just shouted, but shreiked.

Let's all take a deep breath and count to ten!

Oh do I understand this! My son is LOUD and can SCREAM like no other and can scream at the drop of a hat (or a drop of food on his pants, or the puppy didn't run after the toy he threw, or the chair won't go in all the way, or he cannot get his shirt off, or....you get the idea!)

I hear ya. I had a BIG margarita last night at a neighbors house!

Beth said...

Meet me at 9 for a virtual margarita. As my son is currently calling my daughter stupid and yelling at me for making him chocolate muffins when he wants chocolate muffins but doesn't want them just yet, I really need one too!

Oh, yeah. The screaming is SO not fun. I think (I hope) at 15, we are finally past that! Of course, "the attitude" has taken its place . . . it never really ends! Margarita, please!
