Surviving the Stages

8 Mar

“This too shall pass.”  I know it’s a quote/saying/belief that is commonly used in times of mourning or hardship but for some reason it feels good for me to apply it to where I am right now.

I know it could always be worse but I’ve been having a really hard time dealing with the difficulties of raising a 4 and 2-year-old.  And I’m not talking about just a few incidents here or there with them. I can handle that fine (or at least I think I can).  What’s really getting to me is the constant fighting between the two of them, Nia giving me major ‘tude whenever I try to talk to her about her actions and Nate’s aggressive behavior that doesn’t seem to be getting any better.

Right now the major thing that’s getting me through this is knowing that I will get through it.  I realize that it is just a stage and it will eventually end.  I also realize, however, that after it ends, another stage will start! Hopefully, it will be the sharing, caring and listening stage. I can dream right?

    Yes, this too shall pass. Unfortunately some stages with children are fun as they occur (a few), some never seem to look like fun EVER (some) and some are only fun as you look back on them years later (MOST)! Just try to enjoy what you can because you never get to experience any of this in quite the same way again. And remember that you are a GOOD MOM who is doing her very best to raise righteous children. Love MOM

    I give you credit sweetie…one nearly 2 year old is too much for me most days.

    And most often, it will pass all too quickly and you'll be looking back wondering where the time went?!
