What a day! This was the kind of day where I could happily put him in daycare 24/7! By the time Patrick walked through the door, I was in tears! The last think on earth I felt like doing was taking him to the skating lessons he’s been asking for all day, so Patrick called up a friend and asked him to take Nicholas instead. Thank goodness he was able to (Patrick doesn’t skate) because it gave me a much-needed break!
What on earth caused the screaming, hitting, kicking, and throwing today?!? One friends suggested the full moon coming up on Tuesday, another wondered if his molars were bothering him. I have absolutely no idea, because this behaviour is SO not normal for him. He has his moments, don’t get me wrong, but not an entire day, like this!
To top off the night, though, he was adamant that Mummy should take him to bed (Daddy usually does it every night), so perhaps that was his own little way of apologizing for the horrific day.
On the plus side today, I did get a chance to catch up with a friend from 30 years ago. It was really great to see her – we chatted non-stop for 2.5 hours while he napped.
