KK, I was asking about worm bins because Cailtyn has talked us into getting one. We just ordered it, and it will be a little while before the worms get here.
Where do you keep yours? How cold can they get? Any tips or insights would be appreciated
Else, I concur with your friend. 3.5 is a tough age, and 1.5 is a tough age, and the two together are immensely trying, in my opinion. Five and six, though - they ROCK. Caitlyn actually changed her brother's diaper the other day (completely unbidden) and did a better job of it than DH regularly does.
I'm still amazed that three year olds live to be four, though. Allison's latest charming behavior - no matter what we put in front of her for dinner, she instantly bursts into tears and screams, "I don't want this! I want a burrito!"
jstar, for me the first three year old was much more trying than the second. While Allison's behavior is probably just as crazymaking as Caitlyn's was, I'm truly less bothered by it. I think there are several factors at work here - there's more going on in general so I can't pay as much attention to it, if that makes any sense. Also, she has someone bigger than her to follow and look up to, and her older sister does help keep things moving. So no, I don't think you'll be as disgruntled with ebin
and while I know it's natural for us to wonder if we've created this, if it's genetic, if it's some horrible test or joke the universe is playing on us, I think a lot of it just IS. And, as always, it WILL pass.
I said something to my MIL the other day which is still sitting with me - "It's really difficult sometimes not to take my children personally."
Well, I'm a ramblin' when I should be scramblin'.
