I have to say that for some reason Logan hasn't been any better since I have started doing things. I tried doing some painting with him and he cried the whole time. We have tried a few of the other activities as well but frankly all this kid wants to do is run and read. He doesn't like to have me play with him. I have tried playing cars, dinosaurs, etc...but he just doesn't want to sit still or copy me. I know I need to give it (a lot) more time, and I certainly will, I was just hoping for some immediate results.
That sounds a bit contradictory to what I said about being "extremely helpful", but I do have to say that even though we haven't had success in all things yet (of course) I know that it will be helpful and I at least have peace of mind that I am doing my best and giving him opportunities to learn and grow.
For those of you who might have had kids go through this or whose kids are going through this right now, I was wondering, do all kids pass through a phase where they are cranky, irritated, whiny, and blatantly disobedient? Logan is a good kid, don't get me wrong, but he has been abnormally whiny and irritable for the past week or so. What do you do? Other than teething, is it just the "terrible two's", or is it that we are in a new, smaller place? All of the above?
*Does anyone want a list of all the activities that I received and that I had from other things?
