I feel like my son has been invaded by a split personality.
I'm right there with you!
By the end of most days I am feeling like a horrible mommy because Roshaun has just worn me out and I need a break from him. And like you he was so easy and laid back before that it is really throwing me for a loop.
Yesterday's meltdown's included (but were not limited to):
(Like Cole) Meltdown over not playing computer learning programs anymore.
Having to go potty. He melted down EACH and EVERY time he had to go.
And I know there were others, but I can't remember now. Every day is like this and it is exhausting - as you said the Trying Threes!
Oh yes ... I have a Jeckyl and Hyde myself!
On minute ... I have a sweet adorable little boy, who I just can't get enough of.
The next minute ... I'm ready to sell him on Craigs List!
Only 11 months until they turn 4 - and hopefully, this madness will end!!!
I hate to say it but I am sooo relieved to know I am not alone.
Oh my...I'm in the same boat. Émilie goes from a smiley little girl to a little demon in 2 seconds flat. The worst part is that we never know what's going to set her off~
Hopefully this is a stage that they outgrow quickly!
OH MY GOODNESS I am in the same boat, who ever said terrible two's was bad has no idea that they trying threes are 10x's worse, at least in out house as well.
Matthew is happy laughing and then the next second complete meltdown for similar reasons as you all have stated as well, it is so unpredictable and annoying at times!
Time outs do not work for me as well anymore either and I have no idea what to do. I can yell and make him cry but I dont want to do that and then the more I tell him no the more he does the opposite and doesnt listen
UGGH anyone with advise is appreciated

I haven't checked the board in such a long time and for some reason today, it just seemed like a good idea.
