Camryn

This little one has been driving me crazy these days. She hit 3 and became a different child over night. I never knew I could get so mad! To the point where I have found myself locked in the bathroom with the baby in order to keep me from doing something I would regret. Being a mom is not easy. It was easy for quite some time with just Camryn, but now with 2 kids and 1 not behaving-I truly understand how motherhood is the hardest job! But through this I just have to relish in the good times.
This was one. She puts on her Snow White Costume and asks if Ryan and I will "come meet her" like the princesses at Disneyland do. And we talk to her, "sit on her lap", give hugs and kisses and takes a picture. But this time she added signing autographs. I have never talked to her about this, she must have seen other kids doing this the last time we were there. She got out her princess notebook and pencil and pretends to sign Snow White and hands it back to us. I will never get over this little girls ability to pretend and the way she puts things together like she is much older then see is. I just have to know that my sweet daughter is still there, but sometimes I just have to dig to find her.

You are normal. I wanted to kill your husband years ago as well. And someone could have to turned me in for child abuse and I would have pleaded guilty. Carry on.

i hear that age three can be even worse than the "terrible two's". then throw in a new baby to be jealous of and it's a recipe for disaster. you're a great mom though, hang in there!

I feel your pain. There are times when I feel like all I did all day long was yell at my kids and break up their fighting. It's all worth it in the end, right? Haha. Just know you are not alone!

She hasn't gone far and will be back soon! You're a great mom-the bathroom is a great place to put yourself in time out!

Agreed, you are not alone. Three is by far the hardest age at our house. There is hope, try to remind yourself it is just a phase. And good for you for going to the bathroom. Happy parenting.;)
