Random Thoughts Today

Hailey has been a "hard child" for me.
I think it is because she had a hard time communicating with us.
Just recently she has become an "easier child".
~She listens to me, and does the things I ask her to do.
~She has few potty accidents, and is able to let me know when she needs to go.
~She gives her brother loves when he is crying and says "It's OK brother."
~Instead of crying and throwing a fit she tells me, or shows me what she wants.
Sure we have bad days, but overall my parenting experience it getting better.
I think that is REALLY WHY it is called the Terrible Twos... they can't quite yet communicate their wants and needs... so it is a HORRIBLE experience for everyone involved.
I am SO glad she is growing up but SO worried for Landon to hit the Terrible Two's ...

AMEN sistah.

It is called terrible twos for a reason. It is terrrrrrible.

Three is a little better, but the closer that L. gets to four, the more I like him.

In our experience, the second go through of terrible twos is a little easier. Lilly just seems easier to communicate with probably because she had brother to help her learn how to talk and we also are a little more experienced with how to handle a two year old. Now that's not to say that it's easy sailing, I still want to kill kids half the time, but it IS a little easier.
