Jaina screams. It's not just a loud's an ear piercing, ear drum breaking, make your head hurt, scream. She screams when she cries. She screams when she wants something. She screams when she's mad. She screams when she doesn't get her way. She screams when she doesn't want to go to bed. She screams when she and her sister fight. 
She screams. All. The. Time. 

I think that her latest teething adventure has magnified the problem but I'm at a loss as to what to do about it.

It's interesting....I've noticed that when she gets into something and she's been naughty, if I tell her "no" {and} spank her, she screams and cries like the world has ended. But, if I ask her nicely to put whatever she has back where she found it and thank her for it when she's done, she's totally fine with not having the thing that she wanted. It baffles me. Her sister responded so well to "no" and a spank that I thought that's just what we were supposed to do....

Turns out, every child is different. 

We'll take any advice we can get. How do we stop the screaming?!?! It's madness!


We celebrated a day early with Ken and Kathy, Patty, Josh and Jason. 
This man works hard so that I can chill out every day...I thought he deserved some new toys. :) He looks a little bit excited. :) Happy Birthday my love.
