I feel like I keep going in a and out of liking toddlerhood. Some days it is great, others it is very trying. So trying I rethink having any more children.
I wonder if he is really trying to make me forget, or it is just his way of saying sorry. He also does it when he hits me (on the rare occasion).
The demanding, impatience, obsessive traits of a toddler are exhausting. I try to ignore it as best as I can, but I often wonder what is the best way to deal with tantrums. His usually deal with food, him not getting what he wants, when he wants, as quickly as he wants. I think Leland would be fine with just eating consistently all day long. But then he wouldn't eat lunch or dinner, so it is a no go.
His favorite days are Sunday when we go to watch football and there are snacks at his level from 10-12.
I got a random day off of work today and it was nice just the two of us. He fell asleep nursing in our bed at nap time and I didn't have the heart to move him, so there he napped. Made me think of his baby days where it was normal for him to nap in our bed.
I know every mom is different. I love my child so much, but I think I am a bit better with the baby stage than the toddler stage so far. Sometimes it is challenging coming up with activities (structured and unstructured) to keep in entertained and not yelling at me because he is bored.
