Attack of the Bubsy Monster . . . and an interesting read .

The monster in Will came out this weekend. In full force. Here are a couple of reasons that made it one long weekend.
  1. Will refused to take naps. All. Weekend. Long.
  2. He refused to eat what was in front of him at meal times.
  3. When it was time to come in from being outside, full on tantrum. Kicking, screaming with sand flying everywhere!
  4. When he had a tantrum from lack of sleep, he would throw toys, pretty much whatever was in sight.
  5. When going out and about to run errands, he would arch his back when trying to put him in his car seat. Can we say, annoying and frustrating!
  6. Bedtime has become a chore. He will kick his head board on his crib until he finally falls asleep.

I really hope this is just the two year molars playing tricks with my sweet bubsy because I seriously thought today I was going to pull my hair out.

On a brighter note he was a perfect angel at the library yesterday morning when he got to pick out a Thomas book. Thank you Thomas!

I happen to pick up several of the books that I have been waiting to come in and was so happy to have some new reading material. Chelle @ The Winey Mommy actually suggested this book and I was not disappointed. She totally knows how to pick a good one!

The book is called Candy Girl by Diablo Cody. If you do not know who she is, she actually wrote the screen play for Juno. It is about a young woman who just moved to Minnesota and decides walking home from her 9-5 job that she wants to become a stripper! I was automatically intrigued. Don't ask me why. Chelle did say there were some graphic parts and she was right. Some parts actually grossed me out but I could not put the book down! If you want a quick read, I definitely recommend this book! So good!

Thanks Chelle!

I hope it's a very short-lived phase and you get your sweetheart back quickly!

Oh I hated those days when my daughter would do that! It passes eventually only to be replaced by some other tantrum. Oh well, most of the time they are so sweet.

Oh, girl, the tantrums...ahhh! Isabella recently went through another one of those phases...yikes. Hoping he gets back to his sweet self asap :)

So happy you loved the book!! I still gag when thinking of a certain part {the business guy who, um, licked the window, etc?! GAG!!}.
