Challenges Galore

I have less than five minutes to write an entry which you know is near impossible for me.

I will just say that right now, life is a tad bit challenging.

The two year old almost three year old child has suddenly become a bit of a challenge. He has found a temper that he hasn't really had, and suddenly is pushing every boundary I set. We are back to "no" being the favorite word...his, not mine. :) I honestly just stare in disbelief at the meltdowns (which apparently he saves for us at the end of the day), wondering why??? He is such a sweet boy, or can be. I keep thinking, "This too will pass...this too will pass."

Then there is the pre-teen who seems to think he knows more than I do, the eight year old who reports on everything her siblings do, and I mean everything! And the five year old who...well, is a bit challenging at times for various reasons.

I will be honest. A few days this week, I put my forehead in my hands and wondered, "Why? Why am I doing this?"

Still wondering that sometimes.


More later.


  1. Having already raised 3 kids and having my own almost 3 year old, I completely understand what you're going through. Make sure you always look for the humor in every situation and you'll survive these years.

  2. Sounds like you've had a rough week! Hopefully things improve soon! Keep up the good work!

  3. Its hard...I've had a rough few weeks with my 5 and 7 year olds, all we can do is just hang in there. They tell me it gets better after they hit 15 am really hoping they were just scaring me and its really sooner then that. :)
