I have a good friend who is currently enduring the trials of raising a spirited 2 year old daughter. Ahh...how 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.
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!
That is a very familiar face...
