In the time since I have last posted, some crazy toddler monster has taken over my son.




A day in our house is like some kind of up and down two-year-old roller coaster ride. Most days, I am able to just kind of hold on tight and make it out the other side alive. That being said, the last thing I want to do when I do have two sleeping kiddos is rehash all the madness. With my days being so...challenging of late, I just want to completely shut off whenever I have the opportunity. I have done so at the expense of blogging. I am going to try my best to get back on track.

I spent all day Monday struggling through mountains of mom-guilt for not having more patience with my Little Man over the weekend. It amazes me how we can go from laughter and fun to tears and screaming and back again in the blink of an eye. And the havoc that that wreaks on my mental status is more than I care to deal with.

But after reading this amazing article shared by a friend on mine on FB, I came to the realization that tomorrow is another day and all I can do is be better.

And in other news--a lot of happenings with Little Lady in the past few weeks. She celebrated her half birthday. Can you believe it has been SIX MONTHS already? I absolutely cannot. We started solids, which my little chunk-a-munk loves! She is sitting independently 100% of the time, scooching on her little tushie across the floor and starting to rock on her hands and knees. I can't believe what a big girl she is already. Her personality gets bigger and cuter every single day.

Each day is something new with BOTH kids. I relish in all of our wonderful moments and remember that there is always tomorrow when the tough moments rear their ugly heads.

How do you deal with the tough days with your toddler?
