A Little Clarification

Dear Chatty:
Remember that letter I wrote you the other week regarding the behavior you display at home versus the behavior you display at school? I think you may have misunderstood my request (not sure if it is because you can't read yet or not). I asked you to bring the behavior that you use at school home with you everyday and act that way at home as well as at school. I did NOT ask you to take the behavior you have been displaying at home to school with you. I want to make sure you understand me 100% as I do not want to see another note from Miss Johnson detailing where you had behavioral issues at school. If you need any further clarification, please let me know and I will read the letter to you. Thanks, I love you sweetie!

Love
Mom


Dear Bia:
I don't know what happened to my cute, sweet innocent little baby. Since you turned two you have become the most stubborn and independent child (at least you are still cute). Now I know you get those lovely traits from me, but please sweetheart, don't throw a tantrum every time someone tries to help you do something (i.e. wash your hands, get you dressed, buckle your carseat, etc.). And when you do decide to throw those "selected" tantrums can you not scream "NOOOOOO I DO IT MYSELF" at the top of your lungs so the whole state can hear? Just asking, as Daddy and I are getting a little tired of the screaming. Oh and one more thing, can you please stop talking during dinner about eating your dinner and actually start eating it? You enjoy saying "eat all my dinner" numerous times during the meal and then proceed to play with your food and chit chat for 45 minutes. All the while the food stays on your plate and doesn't go in your mouth. Then you scream when we finally (after 45 minutes) take your plate away, claiming, "I eat my dinner." Thanks and please let me know if you have any questions! I love you sweet Bia!

Love
Mommy

Oh no, it seems that Tess must of sent Bia a letter of how to act when you turn two. Our sweet, sweet Tess is gone. GONE! I am sad. She locked her legs in HEB and screamed about getting into the cart. Bram NEVER did this. I didn't know what to do.
And now she must get in and out of the car all by herself. It takes freaking 45 minutes and my patience drains slowly.
I don't know where she gets it, I really don't.

Let's just start drinking now. Sound good?

I think you moved in our house and accidentally were writing about Shaun and Ainsley instead. I think these kids have secret cell phones and tell each other how to act. Crazy how much they are a like.

I'm right there with you! My child is so good at school (day care) and then when I pick him up he is a monster until he goes to bed. I thought I was in the clear...he's 2 1/2 and wearing us out. It is a good thing he is cute and sweet when he wants to be!! I keep thinking to myself "this too shall pass"...
