Emotions Flying High

It's been a busy, emotional week for my boys. They both seem to be flying high on the sensitivity spectrum.

Max has been crying and whining over nothing and has learned to throw fits like his brother. Tonight, he was crying over a fork that fell on the floor and when I told him he needed to calm down, he screamed "NO!!!" at me and ran to his room and closed his door!!! When did he transform into a 8 year old girl??

Payton has always required a decent amount of sleep. Usually around 12-hours every night. If he doesn't get it, he's a mess. Our weeks have been filled with swimming lessons and church, making him late to bed two nights this week already. Tonight, his "listening ears" must have been broken because he was corrected several times because of behavior issues. It wasn't long before a meltdown ensued and he was a screaming, teary mess.

It's days like these that I feel the need for a break. Oh yeah! I'm getting one!! My father-in-law will be taking both boys to Toledo tomorrow afternoon where they will stay until Sunday. Matt will be joining them for military on Saturday & Sunday, so it'll just be me and the dog this weekend. Ahhhhh.....

Enjoy the boys, Dot & Gene!! (tee hee)

This post has not title. As a result my live bookmarks does not pick up on the fact that it is here, so I just discovered it.

I hope.... think that these outbursts are probably a result of cabin fever. I think we are all feeling the effects of being shut in by the weather. At any rate enjoy your Mom with Mom time. I love you both
