To be sick of constant demands!!!

Ds (16months) is standing on the couch demanding the night garden.
To be honest his constant demands for food, water, toys and tv are becoming overwhelming.
If he doesn't get the night garden soon he's gonna throw his tractor at me. He is strong for a baby too 

Should I leave him?
There must be another child out there desperate for a mother like me??

He owns a tractor?? And is going to throw it at you??? Is your child green and 7 foot tall by any chance?

If it's something necessary, such as a drink of water, provide it; if it's something that seems like a good idea, such as reading a story, provide it; if it's just a demand, say no. If he's only 16 months, every request is going to soundlike a demand. Look at the context. However, don't let him turn into a little tyrant.

I am talking 

(I have lots of funny pictures!!)

Of course I'm not going to leave him!! But it seems the normal answer in AIBU
Giggling at the thought of a jolly green giant baby 

Thanks for the advice though  he really is ridiculously demanding and I am too pregnant to move blush

There's a thread in Site Stuff with a link to an explanation. Another poster has used them too.

I am grumpy but I find it very annoying. Are the blinking hordes of emoticons we have already not enough now?

PIMSoclock Fri 23-Sep-11 16:18:11

I'm posting from my iPhone, they are my text emoticons

Yes I am that sad, please don't me!!!

I think the one should become a regular feature???

Tewkespeggy Fri 23-Sep-11 16:24:42

my ds tried the repettive, but i just said no, and dont ask me again.

even now she has a go... not often.... and i just say 'no and dont ask me again' but if she asks again again after i've said this we have a little chat because then there is a bit more goning on.

How come I'm only seeing squares and not these unusual faces? I'm on a Mac and OP is on an iPhone, - they're like family..

<sulks>

PIMSoclock Fri 23-Sep-11 16:25:48

I should only buy him softer toys, the plastic ones are bloody sore!!

Ormirian Fri 23-Sep-11 16:27:04

No. Don't leave him Give him some gin in his next drink. That'll sort him out.

Kids eh? Selfish little blighters.

PIMSoclock Fri 23-Sep-11 16:27:15

Aww Constance, I'm sorry your left out.

Dam the macs.... Dam all the macs!!!

PIMSoclock Fri 23-Sep-11 16:28:09

Gin???
Gin makes me cry!! I couldn't cope with more tears. What are your thought on whiskey??

Ormirian Fri 23-Sep-11 16:32:29

Hmm.... a bit too strongly flavoured. Try vodka.

kelly2000 Fri 23-Sep-11 16:46:48

Get a sheepdog to keep him in line.

GeraldineAubergine Fri 23-Sep-11 16:56:04

Throw a tractor at him. That will shock him.
