Before I got pregnant I had these preconceived notions about what my child would be like. She would never use a pacifier, she would be breastfed until a year old, she would definitely be walking by one year, and I would never ever let her be one of those girls that scream all the time. Well, that all went to shit.
I have a screamer on my hands. Marlo screams when she is tired, she screams when she is hungry, she screams when she is happy, sad, frustrated, bored, excited...so basically she screams all the time. Now I am not talking about her talking loudly, because she does that all day too. I am talking about an incredibly high pitched scream, that each time she does it, the dogs ears perk up.
And every time she does it, I immediately put my finger to my mouth and say "Quiet...shhhh." And then she giggles and screams again. Seriously it is so loud it makes my ears ring! And when it happens in stores, people look at me like I am torturing the child.
I don't want to stop her from expressing herself, but it is getting a little crazy with the screaming.
Is there any advice you have for me? My ears are ringing!!! And I have to take her on a 3 hour long flight next month...ugh!
