I feel really horrible at the moment Eddie has been going through the terrible twos lately. I've had problems with him laying down in the middle of roads on the school run, fighting with Ella, not eating his dinners etc etc. This morning he walloped me round the back with a metal pole he found in our bedroom, for no reason other than he thought it was funny. Then he smacked Ella in the face with a big plastic toy and refused to apologise. He also smacked Ozzie on the head and tried to sit on him. So he'd already been winding up to one today. So tonight I spend ages cooking a big roast dinner. I was really hungry, like that kind of 'feeling faint' hungry you feel. So I sat them down at the table and I sat down. I had 2 mouthfuls of dinner and Eddie did what he does every dinnertime to get out of eating it, burst out crying and asking to go to the potty. So I get him down and he doesn't actually need the potty and he wants to get back up again. This went on about 3-4 times, then he was asking me to feed him (I haven't fed him for months, he's perfectly capable of doing it himself as he's nearly 3) and I lost it with him, got him down and refused to let him back up. He was screaming and I was boiling over just ignoring him. Christ knows what our new neighbours were thinking, I felt like I couldn't cope After a while I calmed down and sat him back at the table where with bribery he sat and ate most of his dinner. Now I just feel bad for being so angry with him, I just don't know how to control him when he lashes out at everyone and sometimes he can be really dangerous No real point to this thread, just needed to vent after a really stressful afternoon/evening.
