I love this little girl.
But she has been hard to deal with lately.
Complete and utter meltdowns.
Screaming fits of rage.
I don't even know where to start.
I don't think so.
I think she is just so spoiled and stubborn.
Emotional basket case.
How dare I let her sippy cup be empty.
Or her purse zipper get stuck.
It's the end of the world to be told NO.
Even in the most gentle terms.
I think she wants to ensure her station at the end of the family.
She wants to make sure that she can and will always be the baby.
She wants to break me down and bend my will to hers.
I've been on the brink of just that so very many times.
But it turns out, I'm a pretty stubborn old girl myself.
And that may just be the only thing that will save her from herself.
But then I pull out the camera ...
And her entire demeanor changes.
She's an entirely different animal.
I think I'll attach it to me permanently.
Because I like this little girl so much better.
Can a two year old be bi-polar?
