I just do not have the patience for Theo these days. Not sure what happened to my sweet little boy, but somewhere between getting a new sister to mom going out of town, packing up our house, staying with three different friends in Provo, driving across the country and moving in with my parents has thrown this little guy for a loop. Maybe the adjustment for me has been even harder than for him (how much I miss having my own home and life is a whole other post). I really need to take a few deep breaths and work on my patience because the kid is exhausting it (and me). I know it's not him, that he is two and a half and his behavior is normal, expected even. I know he is going through some major upheaval in his world. I get it on a intellectual level like all the parenting books say, but actually dealing with it every day is easier read than done. And I get that he will grow out of it and mature into a quite lovely preschooler, inshallah. But GEEZ, it is frustrating and I am not a very patient person.
