I am at my wits end with the toddler stage and I'm afraid this is just the beginning with a 14 month old. Please offer guidance, tips, and advice. I find myself wanting to curl up in a ball and hide from the world every single day and I can't help but count down to bedtime. Trying not to wish away this phase because it isn't entirely all bad, but this is the hardest age for me so far.
How do you handle that? If Santa only delivers the gifts on Christmas Eve, then do you leave the tree bare until then? I have friends and family buying gifts and wondering if I should let them put the gifts under the tree now. And if so, how do we explain that to kids?

I know that this could be normal but this soon? Is this something that he possibly picked up from (rare) arguments with dad and I? Or is this just a boy thing learning how to get his way? He looks at me in the eyes and cries almost growls in a pissed off way. Not a hurt cry or a normal cry of his. Any tips or comments? Advice?
Ok so I’m like 95% sure my son has picked up the sign for milk. HOWEVER, should I be feeding him every time he signs it? To encourage his understanding? Because sometimes he does it after a feeding or when I don’t think he’s actually hungry. I don’t want to confuse him though by leaving the sign unassociated
