Lahela finally found something to do

Lately Lahela has been going through a very difficult two-year old phase of crying and whining a LOT. I love her dearly, and she does have her good moments too, but some days she just WILL NOT stop. Usually 3 seconds of it is enough for me to handle, but a whole day? I go CRAZY! Today has been no different. She has been very moody today and over-sensitive to just about EVERYTHING. Well, she finally was quiet for a while, then I walked in to see her looking like this:


In case you can't tell what the stickers look like, they are smiley faces. How ironic. She actually has been sitting on my lap the whole time I've been typing this, and she is being happy. I guess I have to just accept that she won't be a perfect child all the time, but when she is happy and sweet, I will bask in it.

That's really cute! Lahela is a cute little girl. I am going through the same thing with my little 2-year-old. She is the cutest thing ever, but she sure can get under my skin. The whining is so DIFFICULT. I have to constantly remind myself to love her anyway - and that she will outgrow it (to some degree). Even through it all, I'm sure you would rather have her in your family than not!! Just know that as you sit in your house during the day listening to your whining little girl, I'm here in my house listening to a whining little girl too. In that, there is some comfort. :)

What a cutie! But WHY do they have to whine so much??? I guess the power of suggestion helped, huh. All the smiley faces on the stickers...

I agree whining is one of the worst phases of childhood. Some people never outgrow it. I'm sure Lahela will. She's such a sunshiny bright child with a contagious smile. Maybe posting about her will help YOUR attitude. I know it always helps me to appreciate the kids more. I love her stickers. She is beautiful!!

One sheet of stickers is a small price to pay for a happy little girl. I don't know ANY parent who can take endless whining. Mercifully none of us are alone, but also mercifully we aren't all in the same room at the same time with all the whiny kids.
