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 !!!
