I love this little lady to pieces, but boy oh boy is the sass coming out these days. I feel my patience being stretched and stretched and stretched some more. I always cringe at the term "terrible two's" it just sounds so, I don't know, simplified and not nice. But currently I'm embracing the thought that others must have been right where I am, to have coined such a phrase. Man, I feel lost and exasperated often. But mostly because I don't know how to direct this little lady when her emotions flair. I'm gonna start with taking a deep breath, look into those pretty blue eyes and remember that "this too shall pass". Thank you, Sis for the pep talk. Yesterday and today.
And in the next breath, this age is adorable, silly and so many new phrases are being said. Hide and go seek in our pantry is a favorite lately. I had to get some photos of her in action. I'm trying to nurture her curiosity and remember that her energy is a sign of health. I am so deeply thankful for that. Goal for the week: keep perspective.
