Well, it’s official – I’ve survived the terrible two’s, not once, but THREE times. I totally deserve a destination race or a Ragnar Relay for that, right? (I’m sure my friend Phil would agree).
I would write a book with tips about surviving the two’s, but in all honesty my brain has hidden the pain and memories of temper tantrums and all I remember are the squishy cute snuggles that only a tired toddler can provide. I’m going to miss having a little one in the house.
The past 8 years have been pretty rough balancing work, running, breastfeeding and having other little ones at home, but having a third daughter was so worth all the troubles. Amber (affectionately called Amber-bamber and Amby), is such a joyful little girl. Her only request for her birthday was a cake…
An Elmo cake.
Her happy smile says it all – she was absolutely delighted to have her cake… and to eat it too.
Happy Birthday Miss Amber – Thank you for completing our family!
