Meet mine, Mr. Oliver Ben Schultz. Total drama queen. Like when he gets a paper cut, he screams as is if he was stabbed and yells he is going to bleed to death. It drives me CRAZY!!
I have zero patience for his antics. We were at a family reunion and he kept complaining about his tooth, then his jaw, then his face. He couldn't smile he said or it would kill him.
And I was completely ignoring him..... at first. But then he kept the act up for 4 days. So I said fine Ollie, we need to take you to a dentist, thinking he would protest. But he called my bluff. So we left early for home to go to the dentist.
And I am officially the worst mom ever. He needs two root canals. One of the teeth is so infected they might just pull it. Uh boy, I have failed him.
So I told my second born about the story of the boy who cried wolf. And then I told him sorry for not believing him. But it really is just so hard to tell when he is really hurt or wanting my attention. I do feel kinda guilty cuz I am sure he sees that the sick and afflicted get the extra attention in our house, like Davy with her numerous doctor appointment and hospital stays.
Please tell me how do you handle your drama queen?
