More OA Fun!!!

okay here it goes.....

I AM SO SORRY for neglecting mg blog sooooo much for the past few weeks. Work is driving me crazy and my dd, who is 3yrs and 3mos old, is starting to show her personality. We went to her school and talked to her teachers to ask feedback regarding her attitude. We were told that this is the stage where toddlers realizes what they want and starts to assert themselves more.

As a parent I think that I have disciplined her accordingly so that she will grow up with good manners and respect to others but I cannot deny that this is part of growing up. Now, we have to address her assertiveness and turn it into a positive trait. I communicate to her more reminding her what's the right thing to do and to say. Aside of occasional timeouts, I prefer explaining everything to her.

Oh well I know everything will workout for the best. I am actually proud of how she is right now. We developed her to be confident, outspoken, assertive, and wise. Now that she has those traits, we would mold them into something more positive. I know she can do it!


Here is a layout of her using the July Nook kit featuring October Afternoon's 5 & Dime. Ain't my daughter adorable?


Thanks for always dropping by!

I found '3' to be the most challenging age thus far with all 3 of my kids. Forget the terrible two's...is the terrible threes I reckon!

Hi LG! Thanks so much for your kind comment on my blog today. Your daughter is such a cutie. It's a juggling act isn't it? Encouraging their independent spirit while ensuring that they grow up having manners and respect and all those good-to-have things. Sounds like you're doing a fab job :)
