Some days I literally feel like I just can’t do it. The day began with my daughter screaming all the way to school over a song she wanted to hear, and ended with resistance from my son who told me “NO” when I kindly asked for his help putting the Christmas ornaments in the attic. Oh, wait…. my mistake, it did not end there, as I had to make a late night shopping trip to Wal-Mart at 11:30pm so that there would be breakfast in the morning and food to pack for lunches.
“I am 5 now! I can finally go into the craft room at the library!” A huge monumental birthday achievement! I am so pleased to say that my daughter waited so patiently for over a year and a half to be able to have access to this art room. Sure, in the beginning there were a few temper tantrums as I would dreadfully walk past the craft area every Thursday when my older son volunteered, but very quickly, it became ” I can’t wait until I am FIVE to be able to go in the craft room!” I truly believe this milestone for her was comparable to an 18 year olds ability for finally being able to see rated “R” movies, or a 21 year finally being able to buy liquor.
