Portrait Project

40/52eloise: It’s been a trying couple weeks. Lots of big emotions. Lots of tears. Lots of no napping. Lots of extra nursing. I can’t seem to pin point why, maybe it’s the extreme heat wave we are having, maybe it’s more teeth breaking through, maybe it’s getting back into the routine again after being away on vacation; but I’m thinking it probably has to do with just the hard fact that you are two. And two is tough. But throughout those days of big emotions and challenging behaviors, there are moments like this that make everything all right. Late afternoons, right before dinner when laundry and toys are strewn all over the house and Mama can’t deal with anything else, we go outside and run around. I chase you and you chase me. We twirl and run and laugh and smile.

  1. She’s still two and I kinda remember all four of mine had some terrible two moments, but never too bad or frequent. Being a parent is not always fun or easy. At least it wasn’t for me. And I never had a mom around to help out.. Still and all, the best years of my life were when my kids were little. Hang in there. Sending love to all of you.
