I’ve been told in the past that Pookah is aggressive. I’ve never really seen it first hand until yesterday.
So, yesterday, I took Pookah to a birthday party of one of my friends child. M turned 2. He is 2 months older than Pookah and we’ve always had dreams of them being close friends. Yeah right. So, I had this feeling all day. I really didn’t want to go. First off, I had to work that night, I was already tired, and Pookah was just…..off. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but I knew he wouldn’t be on his best behavior. And boy was I right. Geez. It started with the not wanting to share. i can deal with that. Pookah doens’t do sharing. well. He’s only 22 months. But it was that hitting, the screaming and the biting. YES the BITING. That got me. I felt like THAT parent with THAT child. The one you don’t want to come to your parities because you know he will disrupt everything. It’s funny, because I had just been patting myself on the back for sending him to this new daycare and not getting any reports all week long. Evidently, he has been playing well with others and everything. Sigh. I don’t know what to do? At times I wonder if he has issues because of the way he doesn’t want any child that he doesn’t know to just come up on him. He has to warm up to them. But kids come up to him and he always pushes them away. NOOOOO. But he’s really friendly to adults and other kids as long as they don’t come up on him, or try to take a toy he is playing with. I think it has to do with something that was happening at the old daycare and I want to kick myself for not seeing it until it’ was too late. Sigh. What to do? Do I just try to get him through it? Any advice out there for a first time mama??
