I have really been struggling with Emily lately. She has been SO WHINY and it's DRIVING ME NUTS! And I don't know what to do about it. I try to think of fun things to do and fun places to go, but she just whines about them. Seriously, it's like pulling teeth to get her to leave the house.
Also, when people come over, she is so clingy. She won't play with other kids, she just climbs all over me when I'm trying to talk to whoever is over. And she cries every time I try to take her anywhere. In nursery, she sits by herself in a corner and won't play with the other kids.
She is also mean to Zach. She takes stuff from him all the time, pushes him over, hits him, bites him, etc.
She has also started saying she is a baby and crawls around and wants to eat in the high chair and wants me to feed her and just grunts and points at things and won't talk. She wants to be carried everywhere and wants to sit in the baby seat in the shopping carts. I cannot handle this. I can't carry around 2 kids, and I can't put Zach in the back of the cart.
What am I doing wrong? I try to do fun activities and spend one-on-one time with her and give her enough attention, but I just cannot do that 24/7. I'm exhausted. My "kid-brain lobe" is burnt out. I don't know what to do, but I can't keep this up.
