Just kidding

Now a while ago I wrote how I finally thought that Noah was calming down and was mellowing in his daily fits.  Well as soon as wrote that he proved me wrong.  His fits are back with a vengeance, last night well actually it was early this morning I was woken up by Noah talking in his crib.  I figured he would go back to sleep and didn't think twice about it.  Think again, he starts screaming so both Jason and I did what we could for him and nothing worked so I told Jason to put a pillow over his head because he was going to cry this out.  There was no way I was letting him be awake at 4:30 in the morning. 

All of the sudden I heard a thud, I thought it was the sippy cup he had so I kept listening and then I heard his door open.  The little stinker figured out how to climb out of his crib.  I put him back in bed and he did it again.  I was so tired and just wanted to sleep so I did what any sleep deprived parent would do, I let him come to be with us.  This lasted for a little while, but he never really settled he was wide awake and moving all over the place.  So I put him back to bed and hoped he would stay there.  He did thank goodness, and when he woke up after 8:30 I was getting Ashton ready for pre school, I heard little feet come running he had climbed out again. 

I am not sure what to do about this Ashton never figured out how to climb out so I never worried about it.

Fast forward a few hours I had dropped off Ashton at pre school and I needed to go to the store for some milk so off we went.  I walked into the store and put Noah into the cart and he lost it screaming and carrying on.  I wasn't about to carry him through the store, so I tried to calm him down.  Nothing worked he even had a binky, then he dropped it and I wouldn't let him have it back (gross).  By this time he is screaming at the top of his lungs, people are staring at me left and right.  We haven't even been in the store for 5 mins.  It was so bad I had to turn around and leave.

He screams over everything, when it doesn't go his way.  As a matter of fact he is screaming right now because I took the remote control to the tv away from him.  This child is going to send me to the loony bin.  I am at a complete lost as to what to do with him.

It's all a cycle. He'll be the good kid in a couple months again and then the bad kid and then the good kid. I guess we need to just focus on the good times. (I'm really trying to convince myself of this) your story sounds like so many of my days ... just add a little mud to it and it's a perfect fit:)
