- Non-stop whining
- Responding to every request with "no" or "I don't want to"
- Incessant requests to go to the pool after they've been told no
- Frequent tearful reactions to minor things often accompanied by stomping off
- Refusal to eat anything other than mashed potatoes and Popsicles
My kids have got a severe case, from what it sounds like it might be going around Builder Mama HQ as well. Is it the different summer schedule? Are they just tired from being outside all day? Is it the influence of the older kids on PDQ? Is it the heat? I don't know, but I can say it was one of those mornings where there was no regret in dropping them off and going to work. Just five minutes of quiet, really, what a concept. I swear Boobah has no off button and PDQ's volume is stuck on 10. Less than three weeks to vacation, pray that we all live that long!
