- This too shall pass.
- She is 2, this is normal.
- Be consistent she will get it soon.
And for the past 6 months I have taken this advise to heart, and I am now seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. She is learning to obey, she is getting dressed without a struggle (the past 2 days, but hey, I will take whatever I can get). She even went to bed last night with only a 5 minute fit... PROGRESS! And as we speak, she is upstairs coloring a picture for her JaJa who she is going to see on Friday and singing in an angelic tone, "Jesus loves me this I know...." I am going to go love on her and praise the Lord for small victories!

On an even happier note... I think we may have broken the PACI (pacifier) addiction! Yesterday my dear sweet sister-in-law, whom I love and is incredibly brilliant in understanding Abby came back after an evening with Abby and had this story to tell.... While picking up a pizza at Pizza Hut, Abby thought it would be hilarious to throw her PACI out the car window into the parking lot... Tami (who is always quick and witty in her response) said "Uh oh, the parking lot monster ate your paci. Now you are a big girl and dont need it anymore." That was that... she didnt even ask for it at bed time, and at nap today made quick mention that the "lot monster ate it up!" and feel fast asleep! Can I get an AMEN? Now onto potty training... I think I will save those stories for another day! Jan, stop back... you wont want to miss those.
And here is a fun picture that the girls and I took last night after reading some books on the sofa. My sister Claudine is staying with us this week while my mom is recovering in the hospital after a total knee replacement. Can I tell you what a blessing she has been? She plays hide and seek with Abby, reads books, sings songs, colors, plays outside.... is willing to do anything to help... My friend Bexy and I were wondering how we can register for one of these at Target. I have actually gotten some things accomplished this week... probably been the most productive that I have been since my "nesting" time almost 3 months ago.
Well, my littlest child is telling me it is time to get off the stinkin computer. Bye for now!
