The #1 Struggle of Mommyhood
Wednesday, April 11, 2007
GRANDPARENTS. Lord. So much love, so little time. My baby girl is officially 2 today (taking a moment, several sodden moments...). Grandma and Grandpa #1 asked when I was returning to work now that she's 2, Grandma and Grandpa #2 sent me an entire preschool homeschooling curriculum. That's all I have to say. Giving each a cheerful and vague response was quite the exercise! But the terrible twos are proving to me that, when my little one is older and making her own decisions, she will be as much her own person as I am, so it's up to me to make sure she discovers the beauty of a little common sense. We will begin by learning that saying the word "birthday" does not mean she gets cake!
Slight aside, I made cupcakes with chocolate frosting as her birthday treat and was feeling so proud of myself that I haven't even thought about touching them. How many times do I have to remind myself that I stay away from cake because I simply don't like it?!?!? So much for my self-righteous pats on the back!
