Maybe they waited until 4 days before your birthday to show up? Or maybe these are the tenacious three's? And you're just really advanced?
But, Griffin, cut me a stinkin' break. The refusing to go to bed. The figuring out how to remove a baby door knob. The screaming. Crying. Poopy, potty, tissue. SCREAMING. Shaking the baby gate (and probably your fists.) The throwing shiz against your door. Has. Got. To. Stop.
I am not my best mommy when these things happen. In fact, I have no idea what to do. Or the best way to react. I end up losing patience. Then I feel bad. Then I lose patience again because YOU ARE STILL EFFING SCREAMING OUTSIDE OF YOUR BROTHERS ROOM. Or you wake up before everyone and start screaming again.
W. t. f.
So we are going to try a reward chart. Which I think will work for possibly 2 days. Which will be enough to let you make it to your third birthday.
So... way to close out the year, buddy. You're cute and 95% sweet. 5% demon.
