There is SO much truth to the whole "3's are WAY worse than the 2's." I am basically going insane with Solomon. He is just in this phase where I think I might let someone "borrow" him for a bit ;) I really do not know how to maintain my composure with him most days. The back talk, oh the back talk, how do I deal with this? Do I seriously just make him sit in time out all day? That is EXHAUSTING! I'd almost rather our conversations go like the below example than sit him in timeout every time he opens his mouth.
Me- "Solomon, please sit down at the table."
Solomon- "YOU sit down at the table!!!"
Also, listening? I'm pretty sure that is extinct! He is on his own timeline. NOTHING and I repeat NOTHING, is done/said/heard when I speak. Do you every just want to hold thier sholders and YELL YOUR BRAINS OUT so that the child finally HEARS you??? PLEASE CHILD!!! LISTEN!! What do I do??? I'm begging for help!
Still totally on the fence about home schooling. I think we are going to have him finish out his year in his little 2 day a week, 2.5 hrs a day preschool and make our decesion about next year. It's a little hard to make the decision when he and I are having trouble finding the same way length at the moment.
We made this together because, um, its been snowing for like 3 days!!! SOOOO much fun!!!
The little snow
devil ANGEL and I went out and had a BLAST playing in it. He was crawling around like an animal and we laid in it and made snow angels and had snowball fights until our cheeks were too frozen to do it anymore. It was SO much fun.
I'm seeking advise...leave some!!!
