***Let me preface this post by saying that I love my son. Very, very much. I would hug him all day long if he’d let me. But all you mothers out there KNOW that your kids can drive you absolutely crazy at times.***
I have this problem…or rather, my son has this problem. He LOVES to play with liquids, especially water. This is pretty normal for a kid, but the biggest pain to me is that he loves to pour his water/juice out of his sippy cups, no matter how many times I have told him to not do that, sent him to timeout, punished him, etc. It’s like his vice! Water isn’t quite as bad but today (during a weak moment when he was driving me crazy) I gave him some dark colored juice. Several minutes later, I found him making fun little juice designs on my white table runner. Arg!! I just don’t know how to cure him of this bad habit. Any ideas?
And while you’re helping solve my water/juice problem, please come up with a solution for his general whinyness, bad listening, short naps…..
