As you know, I will be a regular on the Matt & Ramona Show every Monday (so excited!!) . I will be the lead Mom to answer the 3:25p Call-of-the-Day “Mommy Issues”, geared around all things Mom.
The topic tomorrow is “Which age do you find most challenging – infant, toddler, tween or teen?” I’d love for Y-O-U to be part of the discussion each and every week! Leave your comments below and I will read them off during the interview. Don’t worry if you haven’t hit a certain age yet, we’d love to hear your take on the crazy mommy world that you’re in!
So here’s my answer to that question. I’m going with age 18 months to age 3. That window of time was pure torture for me! As a mom of four kids, three of my four went from the sweetest little cherubs into what I can only describe as Tazmanian devils overnight. When my oldest was 18 months, I was on a flight solo from FL. And I swear when we boarded the plane, she was my sweet baby I had always known. Then in mid-flight, just when the beverage cart was blocking our aisle, she started throwing shoes, toys, sippy cups and anything she could get her hands on towards the front of the plane. This completely caught me off guard and I was powerless. You might be wondering what triggered it – all because I brought the wrong snack. The lady sitting next to me actually asked the flight attendant “what do you plan to do with this child?”, as if there is anything anyone could do. I think she wanted to throw her overboard! Needless to say, sweet child never recovered from this Jeckyll & Hyde persona until she was maybe 6!
My second was an angel – if all my babies were like her, I would have 20:-) And my twins. Well let’s just say they are boy/boy identical twins who are JUST like their daddy. And I’ve been told he was known for his temper as a toddler. This is TOTALLY a Plym gene, not mine:-)
OK, TAG, YOU’RE IT!!
So while in carpool tomorrow, get off your facebook feed and join the Matt & Ramona facebook chat and call 704-338-2071.
