Talk about jumping right back in...I got home at 7:00 last night, and this morning it was toddler time. I am tired, my legs are sore, and it is so hard to keep up with the tots!
Now, don't get me wrong here...Miss Peach is my sweet little girl. It's just that she can be so obnoxious. Is it horrible for me to say that? Is this just what it's like to have a three year old? I feel like if there was something else I could be doing, maybe she wouldn't act this way. I don't know if that is fair to say. I just find myself wondering...
Every day is a constant battle to get her dressed. Does it always have to be a war to get clothes on her? She takes away her brothers toys, not because she wants them, just because she does. If I ask for them back, she will throw them down the stairs, scream and run away. Why is my sweet little peach acting this way?
I have made a pact with myself not to yell. I don't think yelling does anything but escalate the situation. That being said, how the heck to I get her to do anything? I swear, everything is a battle! Again I ask, is this just three? I try so hard to be consistent. I have conversations with her about how her actions make me, or her brother, or her Daddy feel. I try to calmly diffuse situations as they arise...but it is really hard navigating with a three year old. What am I missing here?
