My dearest, sweetest Grayson...
...you drive me crazy!
Those of you that have a 4 year old at home, please tell me that this phase will pass...
The constant whining over every little thing that doesn't go as planned in your teeny tiny brain. The mornings when the 'right' spoon isn't clean, or there isn't any bagels, where mommy and daddy should have been in bed and not awake yet (seriously just tell us beforehand and we will gladly stay in bed!). The mealtimes when you don't want to eat whats on the table and kicking and throwing a huge temper tantrum escalates to a time out in your room, which escalates to you pounding and kicking the door, some nights it ends with you putting yourself to bed, probably because your so exhausted from crying and screaming....the days when you don't want anybody to 'see' you and heaven forbid if someone accidentally looks in your direction!
Now obviously this is not all on you my precious 4 year old.
Mommy has a short fuse lately...patience lasts for a few minutes and on the third time of saying no, yes I do seem to loose my mind. But why can't you just listen already? For 4 years now, no still means the same thing doesn't it?
I do promise I will try harder.
And yes, your little brother, also as cute as can be, can be quite the instigator...he takes your toys and bonks you on the head. He teases you and chases you around, even though you say no (see? doesn't that suck when someone doesn't listen to you?)
And while the house seems oddly quiet without you here (hope your enjoying Nana and Grandpas company!) I really am enjoying all the things I am getting done...
...but I know that once you start school in the fall, I will miss your tight hugs and big brown eyes, I will miss your contagious laugh and goofy style!
And if your still going through your frustrating fours by then, I hope your teacher has better luck then I seem to be having ;)
Love ya buddy!
