HB's behavior started to improve. I knew it was doing well when he actually sat down and listened to a story at the library. But now he's starting to slide a bit.
|And people worry about little kids defending themselves. Ha!|
It was, shall we say, extremely painful. That's what my lip looked like about an hour after icing it. It got worse. I took a picture of it because I don't think people quite understand what I mean when I say "HB misbehaves." And when I say that my husband had to separate HB from Knee because he was kicking him.
What happened was I moved HB away from Knee after and told him that he needed to calm himself down. In response, I got a fat lip. I'm lucky he hasn't broken my teeth yet. He did immediately figure out the full impact of it. Despite his obvious temper, he is an extremely emotional kid. He crumpled to the ground and started sobbing. And clung to me, ice and all, while I screamed and cried (it frickin' hurt). And that went on for several hours until he figured that I had forgiven him, again.
And yesterday, he got in trouble at church. But today he's relaxed again. I thought maybe it was diet related, but he eats so little as it is. He's also started his bad habit of eating paper rather than asking for food. I'm not sure it's related. So far I can't figure out the rhyme or reason behind his mood swings.
He was doing well with pooping in the toilet, but then he regressed again.
|HB's birthday cake.|
|Working on a puzzle|
Our Valentine was great. Hubby being under the weather still ate food with us (his health issues are stomach/gut related). We had a chocolate cake, salad, and fried cheese and spinach ravioli.
The chocolate cake is called an In Side Out Chocolate Bundt Cake and was easy for the kids to make. You need a box of devil's food cake, package of chocolate chips, package of instant chocolate pudding, two eggs, and 1 3/4 milk. Mix together. Put in a greased and floured bundt pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes at 350. Done. It's so easy and really yummy.
Knee is talking up a storm. His favorite phrases include "Okay?" "Come on, HB." and "sword". He likes to be a swash buckler and shoot lazer guns at people. Maybe I should introduce star wars.
He's also going through the "nope" phase and shrieking phase (but I think that's abating).
I won a booklet from Tiffany. I'll have to review when it comes in. So how's it going for you?
