Ash been especially trying. She is sooooo reactive lately! Fake crying, loud howls of indignation, dramatic throwing of herself to the floor, kicking, whining, no patience, etc. And she isn't using "thank you" like she was. It's like she's just REALLY mad and grumpy all the time. Discipline hasn't been working and, believe me, I've tried EVERYTHING! Maybe I'm just impatient because even though I know that consistency is key, it seems like something ought to be working for her!

Oh, and then I was trying to be all crafty today too. I got an Iron Man t-shirt for Hubby several months back and he didn't like it. So, I decided to cut it down to size for my little brother. Well - long story short, I am a lame seamstress. I ended up getting the sleeve on finally only to realize that I got them on inside out. Then I saw that I'd actually put the back of the shirt on with the tag out. And then I couldn't get the neck seam to match up. I may or may not have shed a tear or two. Then I gave up. Defeated.
And then there's my house. Not packed. Not anything. I look at everything and just feel overwhelmed. I may be a bit ADD about the whole thing because when I get interrupted by the girls (they DO come first) I find it very difficult to get back on track. I don't do with with transitions, I guess.
So there you have it. Oh yeah, and I have a huge headache.
Thank you so much for listening to my grousing.
If you've got any great ideas for helping 2 years stay happy and content, I'm all ears.
