Why, oh why????

So, the last few days have gone fairly well. We've been out the door on time for school, no major meltdowns. But, WTH is Little Man trying to do to himself???? He does this massive back arch, you can hear his back cracking, when he doesn't get his way. But, then he starts to hit himself in the head??? I can sort of see when his is on the floor throwing a fit, he flops around, kicks his legs, whacks his arms... but to purposely hit himself??? I don't remember the other boys doing this, the back arch, Yes... but not hitting like this.

Must the fits escalate with each child??? Monkey's were easily dealt with, Bug's were a bit worse, but nothing too crazy. Little Man on the other hand LOL. If I say No to anything, the fit ensues. For the most part he is a happy Little Man, but then his alter ego comes out. I guess I should just be happy that he only does this at home. For now at least, I still have the lovely 2's to deal with soon enough LOL.

So Monkey has figured out the stereo now. This kid just seems to have a knack for all things electronic, must get that from Hubby. We have this nice little stereo from Philips, we actually got it while in England. For whatever strange reason, they have not brought it to Canada yet?!?! In the last few days he has inserted a Cranberries, Fine Young Cannibals, Tool, and Colin James CD. I can't even remember the last time I listened to the Cranberries, FYC, or Colin James. His favorite amazingly enough was Tool LOL. It's a darn good thing that Hubby, and I, are both Tool fans. I just pray that he doesn't ever bring any Rap or Country into our house LOL. I think the funniest things was a few months ago. He was listening to some music on the computer, when Tool's Vicarious came on. He started bopping along, and informed that it was really good music LOL. It was all I could do to not fall on the floor laughing.

So, here is what my Monkey thinks is good music... personally I think he has great taste LOL.


  1. Oh yes...hitting oneself when frustrated...I remember those days...wait we still have those

    Thanks for posting the tool video, never heard of the group before..I thought for a second when reading the post you meant he put a tool in the stereo...HA!

  2. Tina - I had LOL when you mentioned your idea on tool... but I must admit, I can't really imagine you listening to them either. ;) Vicarious is rather tame for them.

  3. I always thought you were more of a clasical/Country music kinda!!! You are full of suprises.HA!

  4. LMFAO!!! The clasical yes, the Country... not in a million years!!!!! LOL Just ask Renee, I've never been into Country. I am a bit of a banger, very hard core kind of gal. Check out Pantera, Front Line Assembly, NIN, Skinny Puppy, Jane's addiction,and so forth for my music. These days I do tend to listen to more Jazz, and Alternative than anything else... but when the kids are gone it all changes LOL.
