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.
