Our kids aren't perfect!

Merry - posted on 02/03/2012 ( 8 moms have responded )




So I see there's always a lot of bragging online about our kids but we all know we aren't raising little angels :)

so, since I also don't like constant complaining about our kids, let's do it equally here.

1: positive thing about your child

2: negative thing

3: positive

4: negative.

I'm sure we all have many things in common especially with our kids and the things we struggle with or are proud of!

my oldest is 4

1. my son has an amazing sense of self, nothing deters him from his goal, and right now that goal is to know everything about hockey

2. that goal has become an obsession and it can be tiring answering questions all day about one topic :P

3.My son is thoughtful and caring and considers everyone his friend even his greatgrammas.

4. He gets sullen when he doesn't get his way with his younger brother.

My middle son is 19m

1. He is super quick to pick everything up

2. Some of the things he has picked up are dangerous for his age (like jumping off furniture with his older brother)

3.He loves his brothers more than anything in the world and will hug and kiss them regularily especially the baby

4. It has been hard to teach him to be gentle with our newborn :(

My youngest is 5 weeks old so he really only has one con and that is not wanting to sleep when I do :) otherwise he is pretty darn cute and cuddly

My son is 3 years and 5 months:

1. He love his baby sister, his Dad, and me so much. He's constantly giving hugs and kisses and saying, "I love you so much! I love you one. I love you too. I love you three. I love you one hundred!" It melts my heart every time.

2. He has a hard time adjusting to change. This can lead to temper tantrums.

3. He goes to bed fantastic! We have a great bedtime routine and it is my favorite time of day with him.

4. He can sometimes play too rough with his sister and ends up jumping on her. It seems he has a hard time understanding that this can hurt someone.

My daughter is 18 months old:

1. She has the most adorable giggle. It's contagious.

2. She also has a terrible temper and doesn't like if she doesn't get her way, she'll cry and let you know she's not a happy girl.

3. She is a loving child, always hugging and kissing her Dad, me, and her brother.

4. Caused a lot of worry from us because of a medical condition she has (is now corrected). I just wish I could have enjoyed her first year of life more and not have had to be in hospital so much with her.

Elfraida my kids are both like that, demanding and loud at home and perfect angels in public :) people always say they're so well behaved! And I'm like, Uhh yeeeeaahh! Lol.

Good rule of thumb is you can't spoil a kid on time attention love support encouragement and help. You spoil them on sweets and toys and tv and stuff.

Essentially *you* don't spoil him *stuff* spoils him. He can't have too much mommy.

My son just turned two.

1. He's very smart, good at puzzles and stacking blocks into a tower, and knows most of the alphabet. (and I'm not one of those "Your Baby Can Read" moms, in fact I used to think that a 2-year-old who knew the alphabet was being robbed of a childhood.)

2. He has a hard time doing anything by himself, without someone there to pay attention to/encourage/play with him. It's very tiring and I never know if I'm over-indulging him or just making him feel secure. I don't want a spoiled brat, but I don't want him to feel like I don't care about him.

3. He loves people and busy situations, and is a charmer. When we go out, he is good as gold the whole time, flirting with everyone. He kisses the adults and feeds the toddlers. He's pretty easy to leave with grandparents or at the church nursery, cries for a minute if that and then enjoys himself thoroughly by standing and watching all the hubbub. Everyone says, "He's such a quiet, sweet boy." but he is ONLY like that when we are away from home.

4. He WILL NOT stop making noise. He bangs his plate on the table, rattles his toy shopping cart with a bunch of bells in it, our nice tabletop has about a million dents made with the end of a fork, and he runs around the house shrieking exactly like a Nazgul!

My son is nearly 4.

1. He idolises his little sister and looks out for her all the time.

2. He wees everywhere when he is being defient.

3. He is a very sweet, polite, loving, helpful little boy when he wants to be.

4. He has started to be rude, his latest thing is to tell me to do something then tell me to get it through my head.

My 2 yr old daughter.

1. She is very independant and what you see is what you get with her.

2. Her high pitched squeel that makes my ears bleed.

3. She speaks on the same level as kids that are 3 and 4.

4. As independant as she is she can be soo clingy. I have days where she is hanging off my legs while I am trying to get stuff done.

For my son, he's almost three,

1: he is so sweet to his little sister, hugs and kisses and all!

2: he gets upset if she touches his stuff and he will push her

3: he is very smart and he is learning new words and it's hilarious how he repeats inflection too!

4: some days all he seems to do is whine! All these words and all I hear is ahhhyyyyaaahhhh
