I don't know if I'm cut out to be a SAHM. Seriously, managing 120 fifteen year olds was easier.
I know that sounds horrible, but lately (last month or so) all Lucy does is walk around the house and whine! And pull at my legs. And cry. She seriously wants to be in my lap ALL DAY every day. The sound of her whiney grates on my nerves SO bad. I'm almost wondering if I need an anti-anxiety pill. Or anti-depressant. Or a job. I don't know. Part of me wants to go back to teaching and the other part really really likes being at home.
Right now she's crying on the floor under my chair and I'm just tired of sitting here with her all day. I can't even start a load of laundry without her following me around and crying.
I don't know what to do. I really thought that at 1 she would play a little more independently, you know? Is that unreasonable? Am I expecting too much from a 14 month old?
Does anyone follow a schedule with their toddler...with certain "activities" (outside swing, water play, video, lunch, etc) every day? I just wonder if she would benefit from a more predictable day? And not be so whiney? Or bored, maybe?
