My 2 year old DS has just started to headbutt, bite and pinch me, for no reason. He has screaming tantrums, even if he does get his own way, eg. if he asks for milk and then gets some.
At nursery (he goes 2 days a week so i go to work) he is apparently perfect.
Now he has started poo-ing, sticking his hand in his nappy and wiping it on me and his table.
Please tell me this is normal! Or tell me to stop being a wuss and get over it or something, as it really hurts and I am just telling him off all the time and he just looks at me with his dead eyes and does it again.
With his Dad and Grandma (my mum, who we live with) he is ok.
Jesus. Just saw this after starting my other thread, and now I see why you are desperate to be rid of him! You poor thing! And I have no advice, I am sorry, but perhaps you can try to get a break for yourself, to start with. Does he still nap at all? Can you get a friend/relative/babysitter to come and rescue you for even an hour? Is there a local playgroup where you can take him? Last resort pop him in the buggy and go for a long walk...to a pub
OOhhh i have a 2.3 DS thats driving me up the wall. This weekend he hit a large jar of mayonaisse (sp?) out of my hand, which then shattered on the hard kitchen floor, cut my foot in several places and i could feel my blood pressure rising! I didnt even have the energy to say or do anything, i just told him to go to the lounge and mummy will clean up.
Later on i took him to his grandparents... he was like an angel for them - i think he just hates me this week but i'm hoping its one of those 'stages'
