I feel like the worlds worst parent and am sure dumbfounded on what to do.
We know the kid is 1. strong willed 2. a manipulator 3. hard headed 4. strong willed and 5. hard headed. We just can't figure out if it's something we have done or said to strike fear and anxiety into his little heart. He is a smart little cookie, always trying to figure stuff out and insisting that he is always right (this part I blame on his dad's genes) Part of me knows that a portion of this little charade we put on every day is an act, but I honestly feel like he is a bit scared but that baffles me as well.
I can't seem to find this chapter in my parenting for dummies handbook.....
On a positive note, I'm an aunt! I'm so excited for my sister in law Christina. After long hours of labor, the boys have a new cousin, Elijah Michael Speidel born yesterday night. I'm hoping to have some photos up soon. He's a cutie. Blond hair and looks just like his mama. Christina will be a wonderful mother.
