We've been missing because we have been in behavior
boot camp at our house.
Chris and I took Charlie to Palm Springs with
the Swansons 2 weekends ago.
Will stayed with his grandparents.
We had a great time.
He had a great time.
When we returned it was like he had been
raised by a pack of wild animals. Really.
There was a tantrum at least every hour.
Hitting, kicking, flailing, screaming, smart-mouthing, etc.
He made us regret going really quickly.
Not really...but I did say to Chris after
he got home from work the 1st day
(with tears in my eyes)
"It wasn't worth it."
I finally feel like we are back to baseline.
He can still be pretty naughty but he turned
to a crying Charlie in the car today and said
"don't cry Char...it's ok because i love you.
don't worry, I not going to hit you or kick you...
mom, I think he is hungry...
can I use these nipples for him (pointing to his chest)"
