And then there's the rough patches...
JT is becoming very opinionated about things. He knows exactly what he doesn't like in particular, and is very, very ready to let you know.
The problem is that he doesn't have the language skills to match his thoughts.
So, we're getting a lot of biting. And hitting. Kicking. Screaming. Head butting. Head banging.
More commonly, we're hearing 'No', 'Go away', 'Leave', 'Go' and such. But not enough. If we can't comply with his demands/requests, we get the behaviors. And if it's something else that he's wanting... we generally are left with no language at all, just those unpleasant behaviors.
We are *really* hoping this ends soon. This morning, by the time we got JT in the car, The Hubs had been bit on the cheek, kicked, hit and screamed at. I got the head butting and the screaming.
Good thing he knows what he wants. Bad thing the only way he has to get it is to beat us.
