Wee difficult child frequently asks me to help him do something, and whilst in the midst of doing that, asks me to help him do something else, and gets frustrated that I can only do one thing at a time. Example - tonigh the wanted to finish a plaque he's making for grandpa. While I was applying the finish, which he can not do, he started whining that he was hungry. I can't varnish a plaque and cook dinner at the same time. I tried to explain this, to no avail. I asked him which he wanted me to do, he wanted me to varnish the plaque, but the whining because he was hungry then turned into a full fledged meltdown because he didn't have anything to eat. Obviously, I should have fixed dinner, then resumed the plaque, but I'm trying to get him to make some connections here. that his choices had impacts on himself and others, and that I am not superhuman... And honestly, I'm tired. Waking up to a three year old screaming "mommy, I need/want (insert demand here - regardless if truly wanted OR ever met - it is still screamed)" every morning for years on end just wears you to a frazzle. Whatever that is. Help.
