Tough Day


Pulguito has been having a tough day. We had 2 outburst before we went to the movies this morning.

I have an ironing board that folds up into the wall and hides behind a mirror. I rarely put it away. This morning I come into the bedroom, and Pulguito is trying to adjust the ironing board.


“This is broken”, he says.

So I try to get it back into alignment, but it doesn’t want to go. At first I thought he had just bumped into it, but as I struggle to get it horizontal, I find that it won’t hang right. He had been hanging on it. I’m getting mad, so I tell him to go away, just go away. He does. His father comes in, and I tell DH what is going on, and so Pulguito gets into trouble again. This is the 3rd time before 10 am.

We manage to get out of the house and to the theatre to see Kung Fu Panda. It was violent. I don’t know what I expected from a kung fu movie. I did enjoy it. I can identify with the panda. :giddy: Pulguito did great thru the movie.


Unfortunately, he started kicking me and Chunguita under the table at lunch. He wouldn’t stop, so he and I had to leave the restaurant. We spent 10 minutes working our way toward the van before he settled down. He just barely held it together at the restaurant, but he did manage to make it thru lunch.

We headed to Target after lunch to get shoes for the kids. Pulguito fell asleep on the drive there (Dublin to Livermore). He did great at Target, and once we got home, he did fine, too.

Then it was off to the community swimming pool, and he did fine until he went up to Chunguita and held her under the water. While I held him in place in the deep end of the pool, Chunguita went to get DH. I couldn’t hold on to him and get him out of the water. DH took him off under threat that they were going home. I’m not sure what went on, but after about 10 minutes, Tony stopped wailing, and he and DH sat there for a while.

I just went outside, and he’s kicking Chunguita on the monkeybars. She probably was doing something that he didn’t like, but kicking isn’t allowed. It sounds like they are fighting again.


He will outgrow this, right?
