Santana woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Like literally. At 6 this morning he kicked me in the face, I wanted to scream. But he’s my sweet baby boy so I sucked it up. Courtney is at work so it’s just us in the bed. Co-sleeping is for the birds, but I will save my opinions on that for another post. Is this the pre-terrible two’s? If so, I am not ready?
My Sweet Baby Boy
Well, Santana isn’t even two yet so I wasn’t really expecting this behavior for another few months.
What behavior you ask?
He’s so dramatic. Like telenovela dramatic. When he doesn’t get his way he throws his self out on the floor. Sometimes this happens in public. It can get pretty overwhelming when everyone starts staring at you like you’re “that mom.” You then have to reassure everyone that he isn’t in any physical pain.
For some reason he loves loud noises. So his new way of playing is going around the house throwing everything around trying to see how loud it is. But not before he gets naked first! You know that saying “go zero to a hundred?” Well not my kid he starts at a hundred then goes back to zero.
He’s into everything
Whenever it’s quiet I have to go looking for Santana. Chances are he’s doing something he shouldn’t be. There have been so many occasions I’ve snuck up on him in our dresser drawers and going through my husbands wallet. However that’s when he’s not eating random stuff off the floor. I’m actually surprised he isn’t saying “No,No.” I say those words a million times a day.
He wants independence
I miss my itty bitty baby. Even though it sounds cliché time has gone by so fast. Now he’s a big boy and he wants to do everything by his self. He wants so much, but he can’t tell me yet because he’s still not talking. He’s always snatching his hands away when we are walking. When I’m reading to him he takes the book away and tries to do it his self.
I know it’s called the “terrible two’s,” but I’m convinced it’s already begun and it will continue until he has gone to college. I’m sure you’ve noticed I haven’t really given any tips for handling the pre-terrible two’s. That’s because I am still figuring it out myself. If anyone has any suggestions please leave them below!
Until Next Time!
