Things I Will Never Understand. ..


*You say "No!"  They automatically say "Yes!"

*"Ok."  This is the answer to anything until they realize that it is also actually not ok...

*Then meltdown/tantrum begins.

*Highly skilled at knowing exactly which buttons to push for each member of the family, especially when older siblings are in the picture!

*Always innocent even when proven guilty!

*Almost always guilty.

*Also highly skilled at teaching younger siblings things.  (Have I mentioned almost always guilty.)

*Learn how to say "Sorry" quickly and sweetly.

*Also learn how to retaliate while saying "Sorry" sweetly.

*Fantastic ignorers of whatever you have asked them to do.

*Type A personalitied which triggers meltdowns over important things like getting your drink in a green cup instead of a blue cup!

*Full of sooo much sass and sweetness all at the same time!


Experts say it's the child learning to assert their independence.  I say it is the child's own personal game of "Survivor".  We parents are the contestants and the child gets to be Jeff Probst throwing challenge after challenge at us!

Having another three year old in the house also reminds me everyday of how very blessed I am to have had my prayers answered from all those years ago.  It is a privilege to get to raise all of these children even when one of them is three years old and trying to make us insane ;)
