There are still 7 days until Ben officially turns two, but the terrible two’s have been in full swing the last couple days.
- Refusing to do night nebs
- Running away when you ask him to come
- Refusal to sleep by himself
- Excessive whining
Sound exhausting? It is! While I know it’s completely normal, he has run me ragged. Time outs have been bountiful.
Screams when I put him down for his nap or bedtime. I let him cry it out in his room for a minute only to walk in and find him sitting on top of his dresser/changing table. So, leaving him alone in his room is now dangerous.
After having to lay in bed with him for a half an hour last night, I found myself googling toddler sleep issues only to find it could be a ton of things. Mostly just a phase. So Ryan and I think he needs a change or distraction. We’re going to either buy him a toddler bed or a new stuffed animal to sleep with and hope that helps because I really miss my “hubby time” at night.
The moral of the story is don’t be alarmed if you see me with circles under my eyes or I bite your head off. It’s been stressful lately. But we are SO looking forward to Ben’s bday next weekend!
