I’ve got four. The Four-year old (Gnat) has developed a really irritating baby-talk voice, which he uses about half the time. He can also out-stubborn rocks, and freaks out if interrupted (especially on the computer. My husband says that’s directly from him and apologizes).
The two-year-old instigates fights and then radiates cute at me to try to get out of trouble, throws food, and thinks hitting is funny. He also (does anyone here play Minecraft?) rearranges things all the time. We call him the Enderman.
The four-month-old twins are mostly pretty cute, except, you know, there’s two of them, and that complicates things immensely. I also wish they’d sleep for more than an hour at a time at night. They slept better when they were newborns. I miss it. I never thought I’d miss the first couple of weeks of any babyhood.
On the bright side, Gnat’s carrying stuffed toys around and playing Daddy to them, the Emderman cuddles and kisses everyone in the house about fifty times a day, and thinks his baby sisters are his personal teddy bears for love and affection, and the girls have started playing with toys and doing the baby happy-dance when they see me, so maybe I won’t sell them all yet.
So, what are your kids doing that’s making you nuts?
