In my short time as a parent, I’ve noticed that kids change and develop new skills almost daily.
There have been some skills that have completely fascinated me, such as speech development. And others that amaze me, like how a 7 week old baby can learn to roll over or how they can literally grow an inch or two over night. These amazing development milestones are things that remind me how thankful I am to be Little MPB’s mom, because without having a kid I would have never have had the opportunity to see all of this first hand.
But I have to admit, Little MPB’s newest “skill” is driving me absolutely batty. He developed it last week while home sick, and we assumed it was just part of being sick. But he’s been healthy now for a few days, and this new “skill” seems to have stayed.
You see, he is now whining about everything. And I do mean everything.
- If he doesn’t get his way, he whines.
- If he changes his mind about something, he whines.
- If he wants a hug or a kiss, he whines instead of coming to get one or even just asking.
I have to wonder, how long is this whining phase going to last? And is there anything we can do to speed him along through it?
