It seems we have crossed through another dangerous stage in toddler and preschooler land, and yes I am fully aware I am totally jinxing it by even murmuring a word out loud. It seems the really “pull your hair out”, “OMG, who’s kid ARE you” stages come in waves, BIG rocky crashing waves – but when the waves subside (even for a bit) man, everything is just SO wonderful. In the past week, 4 and 2.5 years old have super bright. I’m trying my best to soak up all these happy and predictable moments because I know 2.5 too quickly turns into 3 (and WOAH Mama is 3 one big GIANT crashing unpredictable wave) and maybe as we get more into 4 the real Flipping Fours will start (maybe not?). But for now, these bright days filled with steady water are so heart warming and amazing – they will help get be through rough stages that possibly probably (ah, who am I kidding) ARE lying ahead in toddler and preschooler land.
