Lately I have been so stressed out with my boys. Manfred wailed loud over every tiny weeny thing. Jude cling to me like a 24hours koala. And he purposely cling to me when I have something to do. When I am absolutely FREE for him, he happily run about and do not want me to carry him.
Scenario 1: I was blowing my hair after bath. He hug my thighs and repeatedly say “Mummy..mummy… mummy..” accompanied by some indian dance move too…. So I gave in and stop whatever I was doing. The moment I keep away my hair dryer, HE RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Scenario 2: Just finish bathing Manfred, towel drying Manfred, apply lotion and ya da ya da… During the whole process, Jude just keep on hug my neck and make sure he stands between myself and Manfred. (With my dad presence and being witness) I told my dad if he believe me that Jude will flee the moment I am done dressing Manfred…True enough, Once it’s done, HE RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And he always wants me to carry him, play with him, sit beside him whenever I am about to eat, shower… Means I cannot do anything except just sit and follow him around.. Siao bo?
Anyhow I am stressed.. Today I decided to be just a puppet to both of them. So Manfred wailed, I don’t yelled at him or ask him to stop. I just look at him, and wait for him to ready to stop crying. When Jude cling to me I just let him be… I just put everything behind and them FIRST for the whole day… Am I lucky or coincidence or I really don’t spent enough time with them? Today in fact is a breeze… Minimal tantrum and I am not stress at all.
I guess whatever it is, I am just gonna try to be more patience. mummies out there, does your kiddos do that???? ANy advice to share?
