Phew...almost 3 is a difficult age! I see glimmers of what 3 will be and I'm hopeful. But ALMOST 3 is on the cusp of greatness, its the transition from "NO" to "Okay, mom". Its the difference between real communication and me just trying to react or get ahead of a meltdown. I have to say, the limp noodle, fish out of water, while you're holding your darlings hand thru a parking lot full of people and cars, is by FAR one of the most irritating toddler moves. I say moves because they for sure have an arsenal of go-to moves that they know bring their parents to their breaking point. And just when you get them safely to the car, they pull out another fun move and decide to go complete stone straight as if they are reverse planking the car seat. Fun times. With all the limp noodle action and potty training reverting I still love to watch her sleep. I laugh out loud when she refers to her eye brows and her 'browns'. Or when she gets up in the morning and says "I just woke up". Yes she has her mischievous moments with her baby brother, but she also nurtures and plays with him as if there was no other path but to have the 2 of them hand in hand navigating life.
This bowl fiasco happens at least 3 times a week.
Hope ya'll have a wonderful week. I'll be baking and swimming, cooking and running, singing and smiling, reading and learning! I have such a complicated love hate relationship with this slow pace part of life.
