Yes, the 17th was Lizzy's birthday. She turned 4. Holy acting out all before and after this day, but she throughly enjoyed her birthday party. She loved her presents, her cupcakes, the decorations and now asks all the time if it "can be her birthday today".
Little stinker is putting me through it lately. Around 9 pm last night I was ready to "give up" on her. I guess by that I mean for the day give up...not for life like it sounds.
She is having a hard time adjusting to all this. She LOVES the kids and LOVES playing with them, but her brain is telling her other things, like, "this is TOO much! act like you were raised in a barn!"
We will get through it. She wants to get through it, I can tell even she doesn't like some of what she is doing.
