Like nails on a chalkboard

I’m not sure what it is about Zoe’s cry but it drives me crazy! Does that make me a terrible mom? I mean, It. Drives. Me. Crazy! It can alter my mood in a matter of seconds. I can go from being in a laid back, good mood to being very agitated the minute she starts at it. The worse part, she usually starts her crying when I’m in the middle of doing some thing else, usually when I’m busy with Abbi. Then I get even more agitated. For example, I’ll be helping Abbi get ready for naptime when Zoe will be climbing on me, crying, because she’s tired too. AGITATED!

So what do I do about this? I try to stay calm. I try to let it roll off my back. Well, since I’m writing this, I’m sure you’ve figured out that I’m not doing so well at this. I remember getting pretty frustrated with Abbi at this age as well. I remember her constant inconsistency. I want up. I want down. I want to be held. I want to spin on my head while you feed me chocolate. It became very frustrating at times. And now Zoe is at that stage, except now I have a toddler to deal with as well.

The good news is that this stage passed for Abbi so I’m hopeful that it will pass for Zoe as well. Still, the odd thing is that Abbi’s crying never seemed to bother me. She would cry, I would happily console her, the end. But with Zoe, I begrudgingly console her. It’s so weird. It’s just something about her crying or her constant whining. Ok, I better stop this post now because I’m starting to feel like a really crappy mom!
