"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week in 2014"
25/52: She takes a long time to wake up, just like her daddy.
We've had a rough couple of weeks, with winter colds and what seems like the start of the "terrible twos". This kid has always been a challenge, but she's taken it to a whole new level in the last few weeks. I'm sure a lot of it is because she hasn't been feeling well, but geez, she's got attitude! I think Lucas and I both knew from her first night in the World that she was going to test us. When she screamed for her first 6 months people would say "you watch, she'll be an amazing toddler". And she is an amazing toddler, but not in the sweetness and light, easygoing, compliant way that they meant. She is sweetness and light, but she's also stubborn, strong-willed, throw yourself on the floor screaming, slap mum in the face, throw anything within reach. Thank god for the internet, where I can read other people's horror toddler stories and know that we're not alone in toddler madness.
