This is a picture of Mariah when she was 2. She was sweet, but they don't call it "terrible two's" for nothing. Then she turned 3 and it was a really good year. She really learned how to communicate what she wanted so the tantrums were a thing of the past. Now she is 4. I don't know if it's because she's kid #6 or if I have just forgotten how stubborn kids get at this age. She knows what she wants and she thinks all she has to do is yell and throw a fit and everyone will give in. The problem is....everyone does give in! Timeouts are becoming more frequent and I'm seeing many more tears. I decided she needs more hugs and more laptime. We'll get through it!
Turning 5 (in only 11 more months!)
Knowing what you want (now we just need to teach her the right way to get it!)
She's not twins!
