Liva & Laia : 1 Year and 2 Months

By Stine Kuskner - Fri 2th Sep 2011

Yesterday I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown. Liva and Laia have been soooo cranky, whiny and clingy, it's been driving me nuts!! Yesterday I spent all day listening to their whining again, they refused to sleep in the morning though they were so tired they could hardly stand on their feet. I had to shower with two whining kids pulling at the showercurtain, and get dressed with 2 whining kids pulling at me to pick them up and throwing tantrums on the floor when I wouldn't. We went to a playground, for 1 hours there was peace and tranquility. It's a new place I've found where they can get up and down the slide themselves, and there's a big open space for running around playing with their little footballs. We had a great time!

But then we got home, and they turned right back into the little cry-monsters they've been for the past weeks. I assume it's the heat, I know Laia has at least one molar coming out, maybe that's bothering her too. While I was in the kitchen heating up their food, they were at the safety-gate we've put at the kitchen entrance screaming hysterically, Laia pulling Liva's hair, pushing each other over, just generally being unbearable. They had an early lunch and were put down for their nap at 13:00 already. I assumed they'd sleep for at least 1 hours, though I was hoping for 2 or maybe even 2 considering how tired they were, and that they hadn't napped in the morning. After 1 hour & 15 minutes they were awake again, Liva already crying. I went into the bedroom, Liva flipped - I have no idea what happened, she just went hysterical. I picked up Laia, cuddled her for a while, then put her down to get Liva who was screaming in bed. Laia did not want to be put down, which resulted in her throwing herself on the floor, screaming. When I picked up Liva, she wiggled and wanted to get back down. I put her on the floor, she threw herself on her back and had a tantrum. I put her back in her bed, she started rolling around, having a tantrum. So I picked her up, put her on the floor next to her crying sister, went into the livingroom, sat on the couch and cried! A few minutes later Liva and Laia came. They looked at me, and weren't sure what to do. Eventually Liva came over and gave me a big cuddle. The afternoon went okay, but only okay. There was a lot of crying, from all 3 of us. Albert called at one point to see how we were doing, I almost bit his head off through the phone, then broke down crying again - after which I switched off my phone...

The day finally ended at some point, and a new day started this morning - which didn't seem much better than yesterday at first... The girls woke up at 6:30, though it was my time to get up today, Albert knew I needed a break and got up instead. While he was preparing breakfast in the kitchen, I woke up because of Liva crying and crying at the kitchen gate. I couldn't take anymore of her crying, got up and went out to see what the h*ll the problem was! Albert told me to go back to bed, which I did - the safest thing for all of us.... I had to get up when it was time for Albert to shower, by then the girls were OK. We actually had a nice morning, and at 10:00 Anne Louise came. She took Liva and Laia out for about 1 hours, then entertained them while I got lunch ready. Liva and Laia napped for a little more than an hour, and 1 hour after they woke up my mother-in-law came. Liva and Laia were in a great mood after their nap, and I enjoyed my hour with them. They'll be out for another 1 - 2 hours now, then my mother-in-law will be here at least until Albert gets home.

I have a meeting at the language school where I work tonight, I am so not in the mood! I need to relax, I need to get over these past few weeks with Liva and Laia being such cry-monsters, and I need to be with my husband without being in a bad mood!

Tomorrow will probably be another good day, Anne Louise is coming in the afternoon for a couple of hours. On Friday my mother-in-law is coming shortly in the morning and Albert will be home early, as every Friday. And Saturday we go to Denmark! I spoke to my mom today and complained about my rough past weeks, she's so looking forward to seeing us all, and I know I'll be getting a break that week with both Albert and my mom helping out. That'll be wonderful!
