Needless to say before we hit nap time most toys have been put up ,she is not happy and I am just exhausted.
When I taught preschool and was directing the parents came to me for advice on discipline and behavior. I not being a parent but an educator at the time, would tell them what thought was affective or do some research to give them the best BOOK advice. I now wonder how they felt about this advice. Now that it's MY child running head first into her terrible two's and I am shakin in my boots , I pray that god gives me the strength to teach this precious angle right and wrong.
No book can prepare you for the Patience it takes to say no ,no a million times a day. You wouldn't think one, two letter word could wear a person out but today I am BEAT.
(the book No! David comes to mind as I am writing this)
So I sit here sipping my wine, missing my husband, and thinking just how much I love this little stinker and how blessed I am to have her in my life (no matter how many times I say NO!NO! in a day.)
P.S. On a more positive note.. Sophia can now point to her nose (she recently just discovered her nostril's ... that has been fun) , eyes , ears and her belly button :) Did I mention I love this girl !!!

I cannot put into words the amount of Joy and Love that I felt seeing these two reconnect and form such a strong and loving bond. It truly makes me believe that God has a plan for us all no matter how daunting the path, in the end there is a reward. This my friend is my reward these two beautiful people who have been given to me :)
I leave you with a few versus from John Lennon's song Starting Over.. Stephen shared this song with me a few months back and it really says it all..
Our life together is so precious together
We have grown, we have grown
Although our love is still special
Let's take a chance and fly away somewhere alone
It's been too long since we took the time
No-one's to blame, I know time flies so quickly
But when I see you darling
It's like we both are falling in love again
It'll be just like starting over, starting over
Less mushy post later...
