Our two eldest sons and their wives went to Las Vegas for the week today. I have the 2 year old son of one son and the 14 year old daughter of the other son, for the week (until Friday). The girl (Carlie) is an absolute dream, so helpful and has a great personality, but she goes to school everyday. The 2 year old is the "toddler from HELLLLLL!!!"
He is so cute and looks just like his daddy did at that age, but there is where the similarity ends.
I just sent Princess this email: "I am absolutely DYING!!!!!!!!!!! Duncan is a holy terror, trying to self
destruct in hundreds of different ways. I am so exhausted. I hope I can last 3 more days.
He won't eat..................much of anything of substance, and lived today
on fruit chewies, cookies, and 2 pieces of bacon. Everything else I tried
to give him, he turned up his nose at, or just spit it out all over the
place. The mess was unbelievable.
I tried to get Karen (the other grandma of our granddaughter) to trade with me, for Sammy (Carlie's 4 year old brother) this morning, but she didn't think it was a good idea. DAMN!!"
Does anyone have suggestions on what I can feed this kid? He spit hot dogs out, made an unbelievable mess out of peanut butter and jelly, and ate about 1/4 of the sandwich.
Oh..............did I mention he is being potty trained? I just want to run away from home. And..........he doesn't take naps unless we want him up until midnight every night, so I am just toughing it out everyday.
They brought him last night and he woke up several times during the night, crying for his Mommy, and Dave and I ended up with him in between us all night.................neither of us slept more than 3 or 4 hours. He slept great....................the little heater.
Tomorrow he is going to be introduced to grandma's wooden spoon..............I am so tired of telling him "no" and he just ignores me. Achhhhhhhhh!
