People always talk about the ‘terrible twos.’ Now that we are most of the way through TWO (times two) I can say that I honestly haven’t found it terrible at all. I’ve loved the age of two, loved. This summer especially has been so much fun, and it’s amazing how much easier it’s been to go places and do things compared to last summer.
We’ve hit a little snag this week. I’ve heard a lot of rumblings from mom friends lately about three. That the age of three, actually, is way way more ‘terrible’ than two. I wonder if we’ve started to hit the dreaded THREE a little bit early. My sweet little Charlotte has become unbelievably defiant, and while I’ve always known she’s stubborn, lately it’s like living with a mule. She YELLS at me. Attitude! And all of a sudden she does not want to sleep. At all. Ever. Poor Katie, who has always loved sleep and will ask to take a nap, is so sleep deprived, I've actually heard her tell Charlotte “I’m TIRED Lala! Be quiet!!” Yes, Lala, please, listen to Katie.
The last few days aside, the summer of fun has continued. I had all these plans of things I was going to do before the end of summer, including REALLY potty training the girls and I've yet to check one thing off that list. But the other list, the great summer list?
The beach is soon to come – vacation the end of August. It’s been a pretty jam packed (awesome) summer so far. One month left…. I think we will ALL be ready for fall. And PRE-SCHOOL!
