You wouldn't know by the look of it, but this little one Freaked out yesterday while getting his hair cut. That's Freaked with a capital F. I was using the clippers and he did fine while I did the back and sides, but then the hair on top started to go and I seriously needed earplugs. He screamed bloody murder and grabbed at the top of his head trying to stop me. And it's not like I could've stopped with just the sides and back. The top was way long and it would've looked like we were mohawking his hair, but didn't get around to gelling it or something. After his haircut, though, he continued to freak out while I cut Ryan's hair. Ever try holding a crying 21 month old while cutting a 3 year old's hair? Yeah, it's close to impossible. (I did have to put him down, but he continued to scream and hang on my legs.) After we were all done though, he took a two hour nap. From 10:30-12:30. Odd. He sure is cute with his new do.

I'm becoming so frustrated with my oldest son. He's 3 (4 in June) and is going through a phase that is so hard for me. He scratches, hits, pinches and will not listen to me. He seems angry a lot and I'm trying really hard to show him love and give him extra time, but all that seems to do is allow more time for him to hit me. He just asked me to do something and I said no and he pinched me really hard. So I grabbed his hand and slapped it hard because I'm so tired of getting beat up by him. I try putting him in the corner or sitting to have a time out, but he kicks at the wall and goes limp and struggles against me. It's wearing me down and I really hope this phase will end soon. This was nothing but a vent.
