OK so we did a family camping trip this weekend and it was . fun. The only problem was the change in the routine. Mini-man does not do change at all. I understand that it is part of what is wrong but it is driving me crazy.
I really just want to be able to take him and do something different and not have a melt down. Its not that I cant deal I just want to be able to relax with my child and not worry that everything is going to happen at the same time in the same way as always. I know this will not be happening any time soon.
The other major problem we had was he could not sleep and I wanted to cry. In day to day life sleeping is a hit or miss issue and I deal with it. I thought with how tired he was sleep would have been easier but no it was harder. I also felt bad because he stayed in my parents trailer one night and woke up at 3 am and couldn't fall back asleep easy.
My mini-man does love himself some water though. The first thing he did when we got there was say beach water and run to the water. I am so thrilled that he used his words to say what he wanted. We were afraid that if he got out of the tent he would run into the lake and get in trouble. Luckily he didn't.
We had an episode of mini-man repeating "sorry" over and over like and with the tone like he was sorry about something. I just wish I knew what was wrong.
Other then what I listed above nothing too out of the ordinary for a two year old. He did remove his diaper when playing in the car so DH and I could pack. This ended poorly by having poop all over the drivers seat in the car. The clean up wasn't as bad as it could have been 30 min lots of soap and hot water and it was OK. The hard part was getting him in a shower to get the poop out of his hair,. no clue how it got there.
Well I am off to bed, tomorrow is the first day of School for mini-man. Hope putting him on the buss goes well.

  1. I love that he was so excited about the water, and that he got to play. Sounds like a good trip! He sounds like an adorable kid and I hope I get to meet both of them at some point.

    I hope school goes well for him, too. And also that as he gets older some of this becomes easier and is less stressful for you.
