Yup… that’s me. On the verge of insanity.
If there is one thing that grates on the my nerves like nothing else, it is whining. And apparently someone told Hailey that it would drive me absolutely crazy. So she has decided to go ahead and whine. Every day, all day long. And yes, I know I am supposed to ignore the whining and in theory it should stop. But I can only take so much whining before I want to throw myself on the floor and join in the whining party. (Which I actually tried doing tonight thinking that it would make Hailey laugh and therefore stop whining. But it only made the whining worse.)
In Haileys defense- there are several things that are probably causing her whining. We have been home almost a week from our vacation and we’re finally getting back into our regular routine as far as bed and naptimes. So, it was an adjustment for her. Plus, while we were on vacation Hailey had someone (grandparents, aunts, uncles) giving her attention at all times. I can’t do that. There are some times when I need to cook dinner or go to the bathroom
or hide under the bed and it’s easier to do those things when I am not carrying a 28 pound toddler.
I really think the main cause of Hailey’s whining and crankiness is her molars. I think she is working on getting her two year molars. She constantly has her hands in her mouth trying to stick them all the way in the back to chew on her fingers. So, since she is not usually like this I’m guessing the molars are probably the main cause. Although she has never acted like this with any of her other teeth so I am not entirely sure that is the problem. Unless the 2 year molars are worse than the others.
Anyhoo, If I am not around answering emails and comments today it is probably because I have completely lost it and am hiding in the bathroom singing softly to myself.
And yes, I know I’m going to miss these days. But probably not the whining.
