Parenting has managed to keep us on our toes, especially having a baby but also in combination a toddler. We find that with every growth spurt, a new approach is necessary. Keeping up with our toddlers physicality and also trying to encourage learning through play has meant that we are running around a lot. Tired and old but happy -we are.
I swore that Clément magically became a teenager overnight. It became obvious when returning from the hospital with a newborn. Physically, obviously, he is "big boy" but I really noticed the weight, he is SOLID. Then he surprised me when he addressed me by first name or "Mom." And basically his defiance which could be labeled terrible twos. It has come to a head lately. I'm waiting for him to ask if he can borrow the car for the night ;-).
