Tonight I let Ethan run around our porch pants-less. As he jumped and threw things around, I commented to my husband, “I love him, but he is super challenging.” As if on cue, Ethan paused, pointed his stick at me, and yelled, “No! YOU’RE super challenging!” And then he went right back to jumping and throwing.
Welcome to my life lately 😳. (If you ever feel anxious about how your child might act at a photo session, just remember this and rest assured that your child’s behavior won’t shock me!)
In the midst of this challenging stage, though, I’m trying to create intentional moments of connection and quality time with him to balance out all that toddler fierceness.
What are your favorite ways to connect with your young kids?
