The Screamies Are Back.. With An Attitude?

Remember when The Screamies were cute and funny and I actually encouraged Carter to do them because I loved them so much? Well, eventually he grew tired of doing them and moved onto a new trick. The Screamies became a distant memory. Until these past few weeks. The Screamies were resurrected and they are back with a vengeance. They are back and they are far from cute. Here's why.

Carter now does The Screamies when he's bored. And they're really, really mean Screamies. Vicious, even. Carter does The Screamies when he no longer wants to partake in whatever activity he's currently involved in. Be it the swing, the walker, the Bumbo, blanket time, etc. Fifteen minutes in and he's a bored Screamies mess.

The Screamies also rear their ugly head when Mr. Impatient is sitting in his high chair waiting for his morning fruit and oatmeal. I can't wait to capture this on film/video and show you how the son-of-a-gun wrinkles up his little nose, closes his eyes, clenches his little fists and shrieks. He's such a little stinker, I can't even stand it. And I won't lie. Sometimes, we have Screamies contests. We try to see who can scream louder.

Hey, I never said I was perfect. I wonder what the neighbors are thinking...

  1. Connor's new trick is the 'grunties.' When he's bored or ready to play the 'let's see how many times I can make you move me to a new toy' game he does this grunting thing. It drives me insane! But maybe I should be thankful that we're over the screamies and (hopefully) not going back anytime soon!?!

  9. Ahhh! Yes, they are back in our household, too! We went from screamies, to raspberries, back to screamies. Why do they get worse, too?!? I remember the first time he did it again, Adam goes, "Oh, I thought we were over those?" Ha! I may need Beltone hearing aids before I turn 30.

  10. I can totally see this, because Timothy does the EXACT same thing! Wrinkled nose and all! And yes, I also scream back! haha! On top of the screamies Timtohy adds in a diving back roll with his when he bored! It scares me something crazy, so I am sure that is why he is doing it as much as he is.. just to get my reaction!! :) Oh, for the love of little boys!
