the 2nd year
Wednesday, February 24, 2010

I have a good friend who is currently enduring the trials of raising a spirited 2 year old daughter. well I remember.  That time of life is a time of much joy, much laughter, much discovery, and many tears.  (From the mom.)

I've been reflecting back on when Lauryn was a spirited 2 year old, and I must say I'm glad we both got through that year in tact.  I discovered that sweet little girls, so different from their rowdy big brothers, come with a whole different set of parenting challenges.

I stumbled on this video taken right after Lauryn turned two.  What a sweet little thing, huh? [insert dripping sarcasm]  The look on her face.  The tone of her voice.  The sweet-as-pie overall demeanor.   Ahhhh.....the memories.


Pure sweetness. That's my girl.  (Might I add that she generally wouldn't have been allowed to talk to her brother that way without a consequence.  I just decided in that instance to record the moment for posterity. Aren't you glad I did?)   (Might I also add that as a four year old, she is true delight to be around, more than making up for the challenges of year two.)  (Generally.)


Blogger Catrina had this to say:

I agree that the 4's are SO much easier in comparison. Although considering my 4-year-old is on the verge of being kicked out of his Christian preschool, I fear we have a very rough road ahead with him. I have to keep telling myself that God would never give me more than I can handle.

Catrina - Wyatt is a spirited one, huh? :-) Have you read Lisa's blog post today? Sounds like you guys might need to share some hard earned wisdom with each other! ha!
