in 2009, Halloween

Jordan had a very busy and fun weekend for Halloween – along with being Abby Cadabby at her school and neighborhood parties, she got to be a lion during equestrian therapy. I think she looked adorable in both outfits… But she was VERY upset in the lion outfit. She told me she wasn’t pretty enough. I didn’t expect that kind of reaction… Even though I’m pretty sure her dad called it a while back. He said there would be a time when hand-me-downs from her brother wouldn’t cut it. I’m pretty sure that time is now. Check out her face in this picture. She was not happy.

It is stunning how opinionated and dominating Miss Jordan can be when she wants to. It’s pretty ugly. To be honest, I’m digging deep down inside to find my inner calm when it comes to butting heads with Miss Boo. I know I went years of this kind of relationship with Jordan’s brother… Thank goodness he grew out of this phase around the time Jordan is moving into it. (That means I’m headed into four years of the desire to beat my head into a wall. I’m so excited.)

Back to the topic of this post – Halloween. Jordan’s grandparents were in town to see the kids enjoy Halloween. I think they got a ton of points of view of what’s going on with our family. Good and bad. Either way, it was nice to spend time with them. I look forward to even more next year.

Just think…this is all hands-on training for when you’re raising two adolescents! Can’t wait for that, huh?!

Just remember that this trait that’s challenging in a pre-schooler will make her a fantastically successful adult…at least that’s what I tell myself about my boy’s challenging traits!

She is cute – even as a pouty lion!

I am sympathetic on the timing of your children’s behaviors. We have found 16 to 18 to be particularly challenging.

I know! If almost four is this challenging… I’m frightened to think about 16 to 18 years old! Ahh!
