Or is it just me?

Ds has hit the behaviourally challenged point bigtime.

It may be he weather, or maybe it was going to happen anyway, either way it is awful.

(it was so bad today I told him that the <ahem> 'tantrum police' were going to come for him .. it stopped him tho!)

Oh it's definitely not just you.

DS (3 in September) has been a 'challenge' today, to say the least. It's a very good thing all round that he's fast asleep in bed now - my end of the day glass of wine has never tasted so good.

DD is also 3. She wasn't well, with a virus, last week anyway but certainly in this weather she has less patience, is grumpier and quick to lose her temper. She is also more tired and more tearful. She does get hayfever which doesn't help either. Her behaviour and temperment improves ten fold in the evening as it cools down though.

Weather has sent all of us loopy, dd will not believe it is dedtime until it is dark, goes to her room at seven thirty but sings and reads for another two hours. She is then tired all day as she hasn't had enough sleep. the heat is making all of us lethargic and ratty, a deadly combination.

DD was 3 february and just recently I have been threatening to take her to nanny's and leave her there as i am finding her behaviour unacceptable and cannot get through to her. Time out doesn't work at the moment nor does taking toys/treats off her have even told her that she will get a smack and then had to carry through with the threat much to my dismay. She suffers from allergy related asthma which has been worse recently with the weather but that is no excuse for being so disruptive.
