JJ is still a bit of a wildcard, but boy does he have a sweet heart!! Every child has a challenging phase and in those moments I simply have to remember that it is indeed just a phase, and that this too shall pass. Motherhood has been a great way in which God reminds me to cling hard to His promises in all things!
From August 2010:
I tell you guys what!!! I am putting this video on here to remind myself that my toddler DOES have positive points and can be quite fun/funny!!
I have to remind myself that he is adapting to a new little brother and he is NOT the center of attention anymore. He is our family clown and he got EVERYONE’S attention regularly before the new little guy showed up. I know that being de-throned is hard on a child. He is also fully into that 3yr old phase which is always harder on our kids than 2 could ever be.
Last night JJ had a full blown fit attack. First, he asked for another PBJ sandwich. Not being sure he could finish another whole one, I made one half for him. I told him that if he finished it, I would gladly make him another. He started having a fit, so of course I told him he didn’t have to eat it. My daughter came in to the kitchen and asked if she could have it. I gave the rejected sandwich to her and this caused JJ to scream louder and physically advance on the girl child. It’s just such a crazy time, toddler-hood. I think my cousin said it best on his response text
