How it Goes
Parenting is a funny thing at times. Some days I feel so comfortable and pleased with my relationship with Brynlee and her behavior. The days are easy, and it's delightful to watch her run, and spin, and explore. And then the next day I am totally humbled because her behavior is suddenly different, she's more moody or sassy or whiney, and I realize all the things I must be failing to teach her. And it swings back and forth between feeling pleased and feeling shaken. Today (and yesterday) I am on the what-am-I-doing? side. So, if anyone has advice on disciplining toddlers, curing picky eaters, teaching toddlers to clean up their toys, keeping a tidy house with a tornado child, or parenting in general... please leave your words of wisdom. Or maybe I'll just wake up tomorrow and be back on the this-is-a-piece-of-cake side of things. (I'm crossing my fingers). I completely love and adore Brynlee and love being a mom. I just have so very much to learn!!
