We're learning about the meaning of the word "wait!" over here and the importance of delayed gratification. Sometimes being a mom seems so complex when you realize you are responsible for this little person's habits that form them into a big person. Evelyn's outburts have become more dramatic lately, so we've been working tirelessly on roping that back in. It's been a challenge, but luckily she's a gem 80% of the time:) Luckily I've found a friend in the pages of this book. It's nice when you have someone who can relate to you, even if it's just words on a page. And who knows if the French really parent like she says, but it sounds pretty darn perfect that I hope someone is enjoying peaceful fruits of their mothering labors :)
It takes patience on both of our parts, but Evelyn and I will be come out on top. I just know it. She really is a good girl.
