It's going to be one of those days...

The one's that just won't end. It's 8am and i was planning on going to target to fill a list of items that i need for tomorrow. Mainly THANK YOU PRESENTS for Hannah's teachers, since tomorrow is her last day of MDO, forever! Wednesday is her first day of real Pre-K(been trying to do a post on that but things have been crazy this morning. Mainly, i have been breaking up biting fights all morning long. Sarah has bitten THREE times this morning. She bit Hannah on the back, then Sam got bit on the arm and now back of leg. Now Hannahs crying that Sarah pinched her. I need some major help...how do i stop this. I've put her in time out three times. I'm as consistent as i can be. She gets PLENTY of attention. I don't know what else to do.



Update: we went to target and i can't believe i even took them. It was a mess. Sarah was STILL slapping, pinching(sam in the face) and i could go on and on. I just don't know what her problem is today. What am i doing wrong? Why won't the biting stop? Enough is enough and she KNOWS it's wrong. I wonder if you can be diagnosed with ADHD at 20 months??? Ok, maybe that is pushing it. But i don't know what to think. I'm so tense, waiting for her to bite again. The only thing we really changed this morning was our schedule b/c i have to get it all changed before school starts Wed. So this morning i got everyone up and fed them at 615am b/c we really have to start moving in the mornings. School starts for Hannah at 745a and i have about a 30 minute drive to get there(it's not really far but going the back streets is the only way to get there, otherwise getting on the freeway could take forever!)


Any great suggestions of how to stop the biting???

I know it sounds harsh & I really hated doing it but our ped. suggested it. Both my daughters were biting each others (at probably a 18 mos) and I bit them back. Not hard but to get the point across that it hurts. They cried and did it little after that. And then finally, all biting stopped.
