If I could post a picture of what this week really looked like, it would be a screaming toddler in a full-blown tantrum. Yep. We're in that stage folks. And I can't even drink a glass of wine to cope with it. I think I eventually will capture a photograph of a tantrum just to document it but I'd have to be in the right mood. ;-) Currently, I just try not to cry alongside of her.
Despite the moodiness, there are lots of reasons to smile...lots of glorious ordinary, which you can see in the photos below. You know what though? Maybe those crazy toddler moments are the most glorious of all. They sure do bring me closer to God as I'm praying for patience and I know that despite how hard those tantrums are, I know that we are doing an important job- raising a really special little girl to be a well-mannered (eventually!), respectful, kind kid and eventually, an adult.
Please feel free to share what you think about my photos this week- and/or "Toddler Survival" tips if you have them ;-)
