THE VERY LAST NERVE
I think it’s common for your husband to be the man who is on your very last nerve, but what about when it’s your 3-year-old?
Eddie has decided that he is “the boss of Caitlyn”, and dictates at her all day long. To be honest with you, I don’t care what else he does, but I cannot handle him griping at her for one more second!!
“Caitlyn- we DO NOT tell Mommy no!” and then as if I’m not already aware of the situation….”Mooooomy….Cait said no-oh.”
I could kill myself listening to this.
Here’s what did it for me this morning:
Caitlyn opened the hall door and was holding on to the railing to go down.
Eddie: CAITLYN!! YOU DO NOT GO DOWN THOSE STAIRS WITHOUT A GROWNUP!!!
Moooooomy, Cait is going downstairs without you……
Me: Eddie, I see her
Eddie: grabs the door and slams it
Caitlyn: falls to the ground crying
Eddie: See Caitlyn? See what happens when you don’t wait for a grownup?
Me: All of my hair falls out and I collapse in a heap on the floor.
I’m sure that this is common in any sort of sibling relationship, heck I’m sure it was common in my relationship with my brothers, but right now, it is truly on my very last nerve.
