I’ve come to the harsh realization that I have that 2-year-old that you see in the stores – you know the one that gets everyone’s attention, not so much because they are adorable (which they usually always are), but because they are screaming and having spaztic jirations.
I adore you, Sienna…more than you will ever know. You are my last baby, which makes you special (kind of like the fact that Solana is also special since she is my first.) Anyway, I love you, but damn, you are one tough baby!!
Lately, I’ve been able to control your fits with counting – uno, dos, tres – which by tres you know what’s coming, so you are usually acting right by then.
I know you are going through a rough time right now. The “terrible twos”, as we call them, are really nothing but a misunderstanding between you (the two year old) and your feelings. Physcially you are two; but emotionally, you are experiencing the same feelings that adults do – anger, sadness, jealously, etc. The differnce is, you just don’t know how to handle them. And in reality, many adults still struggle with this. Even I and your daddy do at times. Afterall, we are just human.
My point is, these are trying times, but we will get through it. We love you dearly and want to enjoy every moment with you, even if it means having to endure your high-pitched, glass-shattering screams 😉
