Return of the Witching Hour

I don't know what gets into this kid during the 6:00 hour. So far he's been an absolute terror both nights this week. On Monday he was pissy from the start, but I figured he was tired and irritated, with in being Monday and all. He screeched through dinner and refused to eat. After dinner he sat on the living room floor and yelled. There was pretty much nothing we could do to stop it. We put him in the tub and it got even worse. He didn't want anything to do with it. You would have thought the water was scalding hot (it definitely wasn't).

Yesterday was pretty much more of the same, except he was mostly pleasant from 5-6. Around 6:00 all hell broke loose. We sat down to eat and he screamed at everything we put on his plate and refused to even allow it to sit on the tray of his high chair. It was like he couldn't be within a 24-inch radius of the broccoli and chicken. These aren't new foods, either, he's eaten them happily many times. He wouldn't even touch the cheese muffin. Once he was down from his high chair it just kept getting worse. He yelled about everything, stopping every so often to point to my "no" (nose) and then walk over to C to point out that he had one, too.

It's just so random - screamscreamscreamscream "nose!" screamscreamscreamscream. Rinse and repeat. I don't know what his deal is all of a sudden, but I'm sure the gray hairs are sprouting like crazy.

  1. I haven't figured out how to survive the witching hour around here. My boys go nuts every night around that time. Probably why they all go to bed at 6:30.
