where did all this sass come from?

Something has been happening to my child as shes beeen inching closer to two and a half..slowly but surely, this little two-nager has turned into quite a sassy little thing. Sometimes it's funny, and cute...sometimes it is absolutely shocking (like this past weekend, when she tried to put ME in a timeout, because I raised my voice at her. Yes, my two year old told me to go on timeout, and not to get up until she said I could...really?!?) and sometimes it is just plain exasperating, like when she sasses us if she gets mad or frustrated.

Her answer to everything shes told she cant have is: 
"But I want it" (in a whiny voice may I add)

I remember people warned me of this...how girls could be quite a handful...I just thought we had two, or four, or thirteen more years before we had to deal with the sass! I can tell you this...it's a lesson in patience. I always thought I was a pretty patient person...I have now learned that I have a lot to work on in that department. I love her fiery spirit. She reminds me so much of her daddy...that passion and fire was one of the things I fell in love with him for. But just like her daddy, her fiery spirit takes a bit of patience to handle. And I know, once she grows up, I'm going to look back on this time, and realize that this little girl's sass was another life lesson...my lesson in patience.


  1. She's so darn cute though, I mean that smile!!!! Girls are so much fun!!!!

  2. She is so cute! What is your instagram? I miss seeing pictures of her!

  3. Oooh I'm going to be watching this space for sure! We are just starting to see signs of that in our 2 year old girl too! I thought I had so many more years before the trouble started with girls too!!!!!! Look forward to learning your strategies as we muddle through xx

  4. I've been struggling big time with age 3 over here. It's humbling to realize that even if you are a good parent and doing everything "right", your kid can still act like a lunatic sometimes :)

  5. Look on the bright side mamma it gets better in time :)


Your sweet words always make my day! :) Thank you.
