Stressful nights! Damn!

Something new from the brat these few nights. Insist that I stand up and carry him to sleep! Hello! You know how heavy this fellow is now? And not that he falls asleep easily okay! He is such a light sleeper. And he is also such a super busy body! A slightest noise, light or movement around him and he will quickly open his eyes!!!!! F%#&!

On normal days, I just have to give him some milk and bring him close to my body (his body HAS to touch my body) and after some patting of the butt, he will go to sleep. And I am doing all these while just sitting beside him on his bed. But now, cannot! Must stand up! Must carry! F%#&!

Last night, I decided NOT TO GIVE IN! I am not about to let a 2 year old dictate to me! I know, some people will say .. he is cranky cos of his minor flu lar, minor cough lar, like that one lar terrible 2 stage .. BUT did you know that he is super damn smart?? He knows how to bully people and who to bully in particular!

He fussed at about 1.50am. I assume he wanted milk cos he refused to take his milk before going to bed about 11pm. So I quickly got up to make him his milk. But then he merajuk! Dunno lah for what. Then he wanted me to carry. I know he is about to start that already. So I insisted I sit down on his bed and pat him. Woah! He cry with maximum volume and kick me several times! I terus ignore him! Dont care! Cry lah all you want! Daddie tried to carry him - but you know, our fren dont want! Push daddie away! Sampai daddie also give up! Let him go and he came running back to me! Still crying with louder volume. I dont care. You want me to pat you to bed, can but I am not going to stand up and carry you here & there and pat you like a baby!

You know what - he cried for 1.5 hrs! And in that 1.5 hrs, he tried and tried to pull both my hands one after another asking me to stand up and carry him. I still dont care! I put my hand under my thighs as tight as I could - dont let him pull it out! I did not utter a single word for the past 1.5 hrs. I AM NOT GOING TO ALLOW HIM TO WIN!!!!

Finally our fren gave up. He then asked for milk. Stopped crying. Daddie went to take the milk from the warmer. Our fren then drank it on my lap while I was still seated on his bed. He looked me in the eye. I sayang his forehead and cheeks. Seems like he understood. After minum, mabuk terus! Good morning Malaysia! Its 3.30am.

hahahhahaa... what a 'familiar' experience I used to have.. :S

but since my mom stays w us and daddy sayang her so much ah.. nobody will actually let her cry for so long at home loh.. and we mostly give in as long as she goes to bed so we get peace of mind + enough sleep for the next working day.. :(

u know.. i hate to see them cry or the crankly sound bother me so much.. just cant ignore lah.. else i will go bintai & whack them hard then.. hahahahhaa

slavemom said...

Yay! Mommy wins! But after that, do u wonder if it's actually easier to jes carry him for awhile, jes to soothe him down. Then continue to pat him to sleep? That might not last 1.5 hrs. :D

FAMILY FIRST said...

Well yes! Of course I know it would have been way faster to just carry & pat him to sleep! But I dont want him to learn that he can get whatever he wants all the time! Its not only sleep time! Its makan time, play time .. all of them he has to take charge which is sometimes over the top in terms of his request! So yeah, I know.

laundryamah said...

ya wor..dun give in..if not...lagi worse

khongfamily said...

Hey...you did the right thing. If you give in, he will demand more cos he knows you will do whatever he wants you to do. Let him learn...

Lovely Mummy said...

Good job, don't let kids bully us...:)

LittleLamb said...

i m happy for u... that u didnt give in. i m like u. if want to cry, cry la. but during the 1.5hours, ur heart is thinking "should i, should i not.. a lot going thru ur mind right".. BUT I am..i m really really glad u ddint give in... he will learn!!!!

Charming said...

Good on you for not giving in. Kids learn quickly who they can bully. Slowly, he'll get the message. 1.5 hours must have seemed like years..

remember how our mom treated us? cry lah....rotan...cry lagi? rotan lagi....then thye just let us cry until we have no more tears and tired....then we go to sleep...next time want to merajuk lagi? forget it....not going to work...try something else....heehe

BabyBooned said...

sigh! we can do NO right, i tell u! give in is always easier, but hulloooo.... eventually u'll have a big bully @ control freak in your hands!

so u know what? i think u did the right thing coz mummy knows best ;)

during our trip to miri my fren was surprised at how stern i was with gib during mealtime. he was throwing a tantrum and i ignored him and continued eating my food. i actually told gib that if he continued the tantrum, he'd go to bed hungry that night. i could see they all thought i was one heartless bit*h! but lo and behold.. in the end he kept quiet and started to behave!

MeRy said...

I can't tahan kid crying for so long.Headache...

2ma said...

well done! you are really hard hearted! but i think its the right thing to do.

Joanna Tang said...

I also think must not give in, if not ah, it will become worst, kids nowadays are smart lah, 1 time, 2 times, 3 times, if u dun gives in ah, next time, they won't try it again, b'cos they know it's not gonna work... haha! Merdeka.. friend!

Fussy mum said...

Yup, you did the right thing by not giving in to him. I know it's tough to see him cry his lungs out, for 1.5 hrs some more.. but soon he will learn and will not demand so much next time.

Josephine said...

I sure "mm seh dak" let my baby cry for hours!
If I got one hor, I think I will treat him or her like 'pearl on my palm'...

coffeesncookies said...

been through that stage. she wants us to bring her to walk walk outside at the balcony. Oh ! We really tear our hair but I would have given in for a better nights sleep. It's a phase and it'll pass

nadia said...

Thanks for dropping by my blog. I hope your nights are better now. :)

Anyhow, as for the bike, we got it from a bicycle shop in DU. And for the helmet, elbow and knee pads, we got it from this other bicycle shop in Sg. Way. And they have the exact same bike at RM50 less! Pft.
