"it's just a phase, it's just a phase........."

Emerson Grace makes me smile, but..........she also makes me CRAZY. At a little more than 2 and a half years old she is a huge handful. She's headstrong, fearless and things have to be her way. Emmy hit the "terrible twos" around 18 months and is heading right into "terrible threes." I'm not a big fan of those nick names, however this often describes my second child's behavior. One minute she is as sweet and loving as she can be and the next she will turn you to stone with one glance. Today was one of those days, it wasn't even 11 am and she had been spanked twice and visited time out at least three times. I keep reminding myself that it's a phase and "that this too shall pass." I guess that's why I thought I should write about it. One day (hopefully soon) this phase will be gone and we will be on to new challenges.

Emmy Grace Mommy loves you!!!!

  1. Oh Jill, I remember those days with Annie! She tried my patience like no other. It seemed no matter how I would discipline it would not make a lot of difference. I remember Ms.Kay telling me that she would one day be a powerful women leader. I kept that in the back of my mind often and tried to mold instead of stifle. Ugh, so hard.She is still such a handful at 6.5. Good luck girl!
