When you do that, it makes me very very angry mommy!

Our little boy is getting all grown up and, well, attitudy. He has a new trick. And it's not a cute ;trick, it's not one of the ones I like to show off at parties (although apparently that wasn't up to me).

Kiernan SCREACHES. In a manner that clearly says "I DO NOT WANT TO DO THAT AND I AM GOING TO SCREAM AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS UNTIL YOU STOP TRYING TO MAKE ME DO IT! I AM VERY VERY ANGRY AT YOU AND I SAID STOP IT!"

And it's piercing. And you want it to stop. And when he does it at someone else's house you are embarrassed and give in and let him not go to sleep. So I think he's learning it works, so he's trying to use it on other things. Like "DO NOT NOT NOT WIPE MY FACE OFF AFTER I'VE FINISHED EATING. I HATE IT AND I DON'T CARE IF I HAVE CARROTS IN MY EYEBROWS!" or "I HATE THOSE SANDLES. DON'T PUT THEM ON MY FEET! GET THEM OFF MY FEET NOW I SAY!"

What fun. We go back into battle at 7pm bedtime, I plan to win.

:) I feel with you on this one. My daughter has been a screacher since birth actually. I never knew kids this little could have such big attitudes!!!
Oh, and kudos on the taking a time out while the hubby and Kiernan go grocery shopping! Honestly I wish I was more like that. I'm learning though. I think we need to cut ourselves more slack.

He's only 9 months old and he's already testing your limits! :)
