WHEW. What. A. DAY! Toddlers can be super rough, especially because they can’t communicate with you entirely. Their lives are struggles but they don’t understand why. You can bet that I choose my battles. For instance, when she got a red plate and wanted the pink one, I gave her the pink one. If that’s all she wanted, then why not give it to her? Sure, it put another dish in my sink, but it made her happy. Some may say she’ll be raised to be spoiled then. I say, she’ll be raised happy. The color of something to a small child can be the world. It’s not JUST a color like it is to you and me. It’s their entire day. I’ll pick my battles to get through the day. And after bedtime, I’ll pour myself a glass of wine and tell myself, “I freaking did it!”
