a day at the river

Ellie and I are "transitioning" right now. Meaning, we are driving each other nuts. She is growing up and totally wants things her way these days. I am trying to find a way to make us both happy, while still teaching her she doesn't always get what she wants. Hard stuff. Plus, she is moody! Which makes me moody. Whoever said 3 is harder than 2 was totally right. We will get through it. Right?

To try and have a litte fun, we went to the river today. It was a beautiful day for it.

See that leaf falling? I like to think that my mom is thinking of me when a leaf is falling. She thinks of me A LOT this time of year!


Not The Rockefellers said...'ll get through it
threemenstrual that's what my friends and I used to call it...
my daughter is 10 now and would you believe it if I said I miss 3?

I've always thought 3 was harder than 2 also. Hang in there!! :)

What a great idea. Chickie and I sometimes drive each other nuts too. I've been trying this week to spend some of that quality time with her-being willing to read a book even when I'm not in the mood, cuddling as I put her down to bed, etc. She sometimes really has an attitude! And I don't want her independence to ruin our relationship. It can be hard!
