Breastfeeding the Future Architects of America

8 Mar

Everybody has an opinion. When I decided to put myself out there and start a blog I don’t think I realized how asinine some of those opinions would be.

There was the email from the woman yesterday who told me that his Chakra must be off center. Um, okay, I will look into that.
The other email that suggested that it’s because my husband and I don’t have the perfect relationship. It’s possible, we’ve considered that. The experts have told us that since we have a firm no fighting and a no “adult discussion in front of the kids” rule, his behavior is probably not caused by that.

There was also my favorite email of all, that suggested his tantrums were caused by the fact that he wasn’t breast fed. Well, his twin sister wasn’t breast fed either and I can count the number of temper tantrums she’s had on one hand. I did however breast feed my oldest daughter, is that why she’s such a spectacular speller?
You can kiss my ass lady.

Anyways,
Most of the feedback that I’ve received since my last post have been truly supportive and amazingly helpful. I am actually starting to believe that he is just having a rough spot and that once I figure out how to help him through this, all will be well.

I’ve been reminded by other Parents who had “difficult” Toddlers and Preschoolers, that I need to count my blessings. He has been thoroughly checked by medical professionals and he is not physically or mentally impaired in any major way.

I have had multiple Mothers of teenage boys and even Parents of grown Men tell me that they had years of hell with their tough little boys. They assured me that once they made it through the rough times it’s been smooth sailing ever since. I’m feeling much more optimistic today than I was last week.

This morning, my little 3 year old monster, I mean son, said to me from his car seat on the way to school
“I’m going to grow up and be just like Frank Gehry so I can build you your own Barbie Dream House.”

Sometimes, to get to pure sweetness and genius you have to sort through the weeds and fog.

    I observed him for 3 hours. It was a good day. He was sweet, helpful, and showed no signs of being a problem. I have seen him at other times when he is hell on wheels. If he is over tired he gets miserable. Since he is able to control himself maybe there are things that the adults around him might do to help him get himself under control. When he is able to express himself better verbally hopefully he will not have tantrums.
