You know when your child is acting in ways that are hard to handle?
I’m talking about the times when that little growing person is doing the things that push your buttons and make you want to SCREAM (and sometimes you do)?
Well, it very often means SOMETHING’S COMING.
A new skill!
A new idea!
A new interest!
A new inch!
A new tooth!
A new state of being!
A new experience!
A new something that is going to make your little person (or any person really) more of who they are!
It means something so fantastic is about to POP that you will be shocked and delighted and you’ll slap your hand on your head and say, “Oh, you were growing. Of course that’s why you were acting that way. Something new was emerging and now it’s here. Hooray!”
And then it will happen again and again and again and again. For a long long long long time. And each time there will be more and more and more and more of that growing person to love.
When things get whacky and you start to question your child and your parenting remember and repeat this mantra…
