Hi Mags and everyone, well i thought the twos were bad, we have now reached the terrible threes and omg they are even worse. I feel all i ever do is tell Kyrie off, like you mags, i'd have to ignore her all day if i'm ignoring the bad stuff, and i'm pretty sure the kitten wouldn't last the whole day. Today i caught Kyrie in her bedroom where she had put the kitten into the wash basket and wouldn't let her out. After making her apologise to Daisy the Kitten i the found her trying to stuff poor Daisy into her play fridge. Kyrie now has arms full of scratches which dont seem to bother her, but what are preschool going to say!!??
Does anyone else feel like talking to their children is like talking to a brick wall, i ask kyrie to stop doing something and she carries on like i have said nothing at all, even when i go to her and give her another oprtunity to stop she purses her lips and carries on then after i have put her on the stairs for not doing as she has been told she apologises straight away and thinks it means she doesn;t have to have her ounishment. The whole poinmt of the stairs is that they have time out and not attention but i have to constantly put her back on the stairs again. After the daisy and the fridge insident of today i put her in her bedroom and closed her stair gate only to find she had emptied her toy boxes then curled up in bed a was fast asleep! I really don't know what else to do, is this the curse of the children of 2007??! lol
Hi Donna, at around ten months babies have to go through a clingy stage, and that is probably why he's horrible to his dad, along with this weird jelousy! It is amazing how strong kids are tho isn't it! Louise xx
Kyrie can count to 3 as i do it before sending the girls to the stairs she usually says 3 for me if i stop because they've done as i;ve asked! For colours she know daddy blue and mummy red (the colours of our cars!) and pink as it's lucies fav colour! and she also knows white and black, but she says green is blue, so we wonder if she maybe colour blind like stu;s dad!
yeah, we thought it was nice idea! they recognise their song now too! Kayleighs sonf id on singstar and she loves singing along to it! Is your son still squeezing between you both? Kyrie is, the other morning me and stu we cuddling in bed when she came in and she laid on top her dad gradually pushing her leg between us and once there was a gap slipped in between us with a big grin on her face! lol
Hi emma, yeah i was on the march thread! Kyrie is still anightmere! She is ok for other people who look after her, she's only naughty for us, which in a way i suppose is good! We are now going through a phase of screaming and throwing herself around! She is the same for both me and Stu adn we are both at the end of out tethers! Emma, we keep a fruit bowl on our kitchen table thats always full of fruit. If the kids are hungry they are only allowed fruit between meal times. If Kyrie doesn't eat her dinner she doesn;t get anything else and no pudding, which is an awful 30 mins while her sisters are eating theres! Your right not to give in as this just makes him think if he goes on enough he'll get it in the end. But i think you really need to speak to the grandparents, yeah it is their right to spoil him, but in a positive way! maybe suggest they could treat him with a magazine or a box of raisins or even a trip to the park! and to imit the treats to say once a week and on their terms and not when he =decides it's time!. At the end of the day your his parents and you have the right to say if you think they are spoiling him to much!
