I know I haven’t posted recently – we have had a rough week with Norah. I’m not going into too many details – I know Grandpa Steve doesn’t like to read the negative things about his grandkids. Let’s just say we are experiencing some behaviors that are typically seen in 2 year olds – but Norah never did as a 2 year old.
We (when I say we, I mean me – Kevin was at work) were faced with a situation today that was incredibly frustrating. We have taken things away from her and sent her to her room, but nothing has worked. Today I had had ENOUGH.
She was supposed to go to a birthday party tonight of one of her good friends from church. Since it was time to step it up a notch and I told Norah, “You are not going to the party and I am calling Kate’s mom now.” I called Karen right away and told her – I knew if I didn’t call right away, I might change my mind.
So in the end. . . Lucy and I went to the party (the whole family was invited) without Norah. It was a really tough decision because I knew Norah would be DEVASTATED, but she has to learn that she has to be kind and obey.
Hopefully, the rest of the weekend will go smoothly.
On a lighter note, Daphne is now rolling over both ways. She is now a girl on the move. She hasn’t figured out yet that she can get to something she wants, but it won’t be long!
