Mommy thoughts: parenting isn't always easy
Usually on Tuesdays I do a Trendy tot but it just didn't seem like the right post today. Since I started this blog to document our lives and raising our feisty girls, I thought I would talk a little about that. Since, January was a challenging month for Hubbins and me as parents, I want to talk about that. I have always worked hard to embrace each age or stage of the girls' lives. I don't look back to often and even more rarely ponder what the future brings. (Ok, this whole both kids in school next year is killing me but otherwise I do pretty good).That being said, boy do I miss Bug being 4. We survived the terrible twos and the not so terrific threes, and were rewarded with fantastic fours. Bug embraced being sweet, loving, kind, and full of wonder. It was AMAZING! (I feel like someone should be saying 'dun dun duuuunnn'") Fives came along and all of a sudden, we have a mini teen wanna be. The attitude and sass is a little much. I love her and for the most part the crazy, but holy moley. It doesn't help that I am a bit of a push over, though I am working on it. Yesterday was the hardest day with the attitude. I won't go into detail, but I think Hubbins and me realized that it was time for more responsibility for a little Ladybug. Maybe a little more long talks to helping her see that sometimes her actions or words hurt. That everything has a consequence, good or bad. And there is a lot of good. It just time to find my goofy rock star again.
It took my breath away watching Hubbins and Bug together. You can see the mix of emotions and strength of love.
