I've been absent from my blog. That includes my "linked" posts on Friday which I am really missing. I've been dealing with a challenge. (I've also had Olympic fever, but that's for another time.) This is the challenge:
He moves around so much I couldn't really get him all the way in focus. This was after demonstrating a flip. He has Olympic fever. :) This also came after a 20-30 minute meltdown.
They have been happening for the past month or two. Unlike he has ever behaved before. Nothing at home has changed and I haven't really noticed a pattern in these outbursts. What I do know is that I'm at a loss.
He just hasn't been himself. It's so frustrating to see him so angry when I don't know what set it off in the first place.
He has always been an easy one to redirect. I most often have success getting him interested in something else. I have had very little success doing that during these outbursts. It's kind of exhausting.
Thankfully, this does not happen every day or even every other day. I just wish I knew what I could do to make it better.
These are the types of things that make me feel like I'm failing as a parent. Not overall, but in these situations/ right now. Ugh.
Love him so much. I just want my happy, little, fiesty (but not so defiant) boy back.
He really has the best faces / looks. :)
