Looking at these 3 beloved faces helps, though.
I just wanted to take a minute to sing the praises of my almost-4 year old daughter. This girl has turned a corner. She has morphed from a "terror" into a pleasant young lady. 90% of the time, she listens to directions (and even follows them!), smiles, sings, says please and thank you, gives hundreds of hugs and kisses a day, and is extremely helpful. Fits are few and far between (and if you know her IRL, this is HUGE). She is polite and behaves in public.
I'm afraid the "bug" jumped from her and landed solidly on Madison. My sweet, delightful baby seems to have hit the terrible twos 10 months early.
