I read somewhere that children are apt to be more emotional and push against their boundaries more in the 2-3 months before their birthday. Our darling Kylie has been so emotional recently.
When she dropped a penny and it went down a drain,
When she couldn't make a bead ornament just they way it was shown in a picture,
When wanted to change clothes before going to the park and I said no,
When she trips or bumps into something,
And just any old thing will set her off to fat, hot tears and wails. I don't know if it's a hormone thing or what. But it seems like the last week, she has several crying fits a day. It's not a tantrum; it's just consuming, emotional tears.
I can't use logic with her and she hates it when I say, "It's going to be okay" or something similar. So I just hold and rock her and then try to gently distract her. Poor little bear.
Other than these moments that overwhelm her, she really is an awesome kid. I'm so proud of how she moves throughout her world. She's so brave and funny and smart.
