Please Don't Tell Me Puberty Is Worse

Boy.

This week has made me tired.

Have you ever heard of the "Terrible Two's"? Well, the boys are four now, so that's no excuse. But they are both little crankpots lately. Owen told me twice tonight that I wasn't his friend anymore. And I didn't even do anything, I swear! And Aidan was nice to me, but only because he could tell that it was making Owen mad.

I don't know what the heck's gotten into them lately. Maybe aliens have kidnapped them and replaced them with robo-twins? Or demons have possessed them? Or maybe they have been infected with a virus that causes zombie-like rage symptoms?

I don't know. They never really had the Terrible Two's, so maybe they are just late bloomers. Scott and I are calling it the "WTF Fours?" because seriously...WTF?!?!

I miss my sweet boys. Hopefully they are just having a mid toddler-hood crisis and will come back to me soon. And if not...well, God help us all. Nobody can survive the toddler zombie demon robot apocalypse. Nobody.

Everyone swears to me that it's actually the Terrible Threes, not Twos... maybe your kids are late bloomers?

Holly Ann said...

It so is the Terrible Threes. My 3-year-olds are driving me bananas. I hope this comes to end for both of us sooner rather than later!!

Brittany said...

Oh no! Just think supposedly most little boys at age like 9 are the sweetest things in the world so you have that to look forward to!

The older my kids get, the more I am convinced that those younger years were the easy part.

*sigh*

I'm the youngest of four and I have three older brothers. My mom swears that boys go through PMS too, and it starts much younger than girls. LOL

Amber said...

Oh yikes!! Hopefully they're just testing out this new robotic feature they discovered and will come back to you soon ;)

Granted the toddler zombie demon robot apocalypse is nearly impossible to survive, but nearly is the key word there. You're goning to need to stock up on activities, sugary snacks, new toys small enough to throw over the wall you've built around your self, and most importantly chloroform (that's for you two) :D

I hope they get better soon. The days when my twin boys are bad (which is occurring often) drive me nuts. They are in their terrible twos. I have named one of my twin boys Jaws because he loves to bite his brother. We have tried spanking and time out, but nothing is making him stop.

Oh man. My 8 year old son is going through something right now too. He is SO emotional and grumpy. I thought we were past this stage myself. Good luck!

They will be back. The smiles have to come back. Maybe they are just mad that spring is taking so long to get here. I don't blame 'em. :)

Meagan, I'm sooo sorry to have to tell you this. As a mom of 7 (5 or whom have left the home), there are stages that NO book tells you about--namely 4 and 7!! The 4's are the whip back to babyhood--but when they finish, they're the sweetest, most loveable kindergartners you've ever met. So hang on. and 7? Well they're just the know it all's. They've been to school, learned how to read (usually), know how to count and add and "Mom, That's NOT what my teacher said to do." you just have to grin and bear it (and a glass of wine would probably help :) )
But it does get better. Promise
