Since learning to walk, Porgie has been excessively fussy. Its starting to become a major problem in our household. She whines and cries so much, I find myself starting to snap at her. For example, everytime I go into the bathroom, Porgie wants to come with me. This would be fine, except she likes to push her walker into the bathroom too. Then she rolls that damn walker over my feet repeatedly, and she cries because it gets caught on the bath rugs. On more than one occassion, I have sternly ordered her out of the bathroom. Of course, this only makes her cry harder.
I think part of the problem stems from the fact that Porgie is bored. She has all these new skills, and I make her sit around the house all day. Its not my fault really. It was been so damn hot here, that I don't like taking her out of the house. We haven't been to the park in weeks. Also, in an effort to be fiscally responsible, I have tried to keep my trips to Target to a minimum. Whenever we go to that damn store, I end up spending WAY TOO MUCH MONEY. So, we have been spending a lot of time at home lately.
I also think part of the problem stems from my moody ass. As I mentioned last week, I have been an emotional wreck. I tend to be a little overly dramatic. Honestly, somedays I wonder if Porgie is the fussy one or if I am the fussy one. We both seem to be frustrated and overwhelmed.
I feel like we need a change, but I am not really sure what to do or where to begin.
