looking back

I was looking back at some older blogs and had to share this one with you

This is a blog that was written when Anna was a little baby and Paul had just turned 3.

Things have calmed down quite a bit since then.

Anna is turning 3 this Saturday and Paul will be 6 this summer.

Although they are still a hand full, I feel like I have a better grip on their behavior.

Those first couple of years were seriously 

First the baby stage with all the baby stage adjustments.

Then the teething.

Then WAM BAMMMMMMM the child is mobile and tearing into EVERYTHING.
EVERYTHING becomes a safety hazard and you want to SCREAM.

Then the child turns 2 and decides to start testing the boundaries by throwing MASSIVE melt downs if you don't allow them to crawl into the dish washer or paint the wall with finger nail polish.

Then starts the good ol' time out time in which you attempt to teach the child how to BEHAVE like a human.

Then 3 comes along and the child seems to FINALLY chill out a bit.


Not that it is super easy at the moment, but it is manageable.
I can say that I am smiling and laughing more than crying out in frustration!!

Those first 3 years are physically EXHAUSTING and it seems like they will NEVER end.
