Where Did That Halo Go?

I know that it has been a while since I last had a post, but I just really haven't found the time. I've been having trouble finding the time to do almost everything i.e. housework, yard work, grocery shopping, pretty much all of my "duties" except take care of the kids. It seems that my kids have been very demanding lately.

Up until about two weeks ago, Princess was a really good girl. I only had to discipline her a couple of times a day. But then one morning she woke up different. She is still a good girl, but she is driving me crazy. There are times I try to talk to her and she completely ignores me! Before when I asked her to clean up, she was excited about it. Now she refuses! I feel like I am disciplining her constantly. I don't know if this is a test of patience or just the terrible twos starting.

I know all of you are out there laughing because you have all been through it. I don't know how I am going to manage, because I know in about a year and a half I have another one to go through it with.

Can someone take my kids, train them, and then return them to me when they are perfect? Ha! Ha! Ha! - Only in my dreams, right?

I'm feeling for you....and, I won't lie...that is THE TOUGHEST AGE I ever went through with all 3 of my kids.

Once she turns 3 the halo will be back!

I'm cracking up here, remembering those days so fondly. And yes, you will have to go thru it multiple times, but in each time you'll find yourself a little wiser and a little more compassionate and a little more equipped. They all grow through it, and from where I'm sitting, they ARE the hardest but among the best years you guys will have!

And where can I get one of those halos? NONE of mine ever had a one! Not a ONE!

I hate to possibly delay hope, but I don't agree with Melissa 100 percent. In my experience their halos are returned around age 4 1/2.
