Migraine City

Andy is drving me up a wall.  He is CONSTANTLY screaming and shrieking and when I either ask or yell at him to stop, he cries and adds a random shriek to that too.  I am so angry and upset with him.  It isn't bad enough that I'm sick and trying to deal with all threee kids at home and this insane heat, he's got to add crazy 2-year-old behavior to the mix too? 

It isn't that he's trying to communicate something and can't-- we're working around those problems and he has enough words and signs that I can understand what he wants.  It's almost like he really enjoys the sound and the use of his voice.  

It's seriously driving me nuts.  Thank goodness Steve is working regular hours this week and is relieving me when he gets home in the afternoon from kid duty.  

I don't know what to do.  Any suggestions?

I think you've hit the nail right on the head there. Lennon enjoys this too, but I see him so infrequently that I'm able to shriek right back at him and make him laugh. If I had to deal with it all day I would get as annoyed as you are, I am sure!

Does he have any toys he likes to talk to or music he likes to sing along with? Maybe if you try to redirect the noisemaking toward an object rather than toward you he'll get more absorbed and at least lower the volume?

I'm just talking out of my ass here so feel free to tell me to shut up. :) Good luck.
