My lil drama queen

Evangeline got tiered at my Grand Mothers yesterday and 15 minutes into the visit became a very unpleasant guest. She cried and screamed and wanted me to nurse her, but only in the back guestroom, away from the family, cause she didn’t like their unknown voices near her. She screamed so hard at me she turned beat red, my Grandmother got upset and was worried she couldn’t breath, I assured her this was normal Evangeline behaviour. There is no in between with her, she is happy, neutral calm or seriously over the top pissed off, she is a women of extremes and reaches those extremes in T minus 1 second and counting. I am used to it now, but it used to cause me panic attacks in the early days.

My Grandmother-who had 8 babies, said sorry but she can’t babysit cause she is afraid of that temper, it makes her stomach knot :LOL. not that I want a babysitter anyhow, I won’t be leaving her for awhile, but I think it goes to show how serious this baby girl is when she is mad, she is all about expressing just how mad she is.

See I am not just unsure in my parenting, or soft,  I have a very over the top tempramental child, yup, no slow soft introduction to parenting for me, trial by fire all the way. Good thing she is so soft, cuddly and full of love for me in exchange or I might have had a nervous breakdown by now thinking I must be doing something terribly wrong by her. My little firecracker, that is what I call her.

Man I really hope she grows out of her people except mom hating phase sooner rater then later, her family really want’s to know her and don’t get to see her often. I guess it’s just getting used to them, but she dosen’t see them often enough for that. She is better with my mom then anyone else, but still has a time limit then it’s all about the meltdown until I help her calm down and realise it’s fine.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. We say of Remy, “He is happy until he is not.” And OHMYGOODNESS is that the truth! Extremes… dood. Trial by fire indeed.

  3. It amazes me how alike Evangeline and Erik are. I call Erik my little firecracker, too! And pretty much everything else you say about her temper is true here, too. *hugs* Hopefully it won’t be too long before they start to like other people.

    *edited because I realized after I posted that I spelled her name wrong. sorry!*

  5. ooooh! get ready! My first was a very ‘extreme’ child. When he was mad as a baby, he would scream until noise didn’t come out and he momentarily stopped breathing, red face and all. He still has that temper. When he’s mad, he’s really mad. When he’s happy, he’s over the top howling in laughter. He also disliked change in a big way and still does. Even a change in routine can sometimes put him at wits end for a few moments. It definitely has it’s challenges. It makes him the intense person he is. Of course I wouldn’t change it at all.

    This baby is way different. More easy going. It’s very different. If he’s not mad or happy and just chillin’ I”m like, what’s wrong with him? LOL

    • Well, what do ya do, we both know a child is a blessing no matter how extreme, I just have to remind myself how greatful I am to have a child so FULL of life, as opposed to so not. I love her just the way she is, she won’t be a backdrop, that’s for sure, she is a forefront baby all the way.
