Cry Baby

Isabella is a cry Baby.  There's no way around it.  It is what it is and it be what it be.   I think that this is my own personal form of karma.  If it's one thing that I've always hated as a teacher, it's been criers.  I've never had patience for children who cry for no reason.  So God gifts me with a cry baby so that I can temper myself...well played God, well played.

But it's not just a regular tearful sniffle, it's an out and out full on tears streaming, high screaming, inconsolable cry.  And it's never for anything good.  Her cookie broke before she could eat it.  Her cousin has a pink pail and she has a purple one.  She sat somewhere second.  She didn't get to be the leader.  I'm sure all that stuff is super important for a three year old, but to me it's pretty ridiculous.

I don't think it's just the age, because when she's with my nieces, none of them cry like that.  I mean they cry, just  not over every little thing.  It's not like she can't express herself, she speaks in full sentences and can easily communicate what she wants, she's just super emotional.

It's not all the time, she tends to go in fits and spurts, but right now she's in a crying stage.  It's becoming embarrassing.  But who knows...maybe one day she'll channel all that angst and become a brooding lead to an alternative rock band.  A mom can dream huh?

I am a cry baby too! Haha.. My mom said I never stop crying. She would do all sorts of stuff to pacify me but I just won't stop ! Haha.. And even until now I'm still a cry baby. It's hard for me to stop crying once I started!

Ok.. I never comment when I am reading in my phone because autocorrect and I HATE each other (case in point, I just had a three minute fight with it over the word parallel )... But, after reading your last two posts I sm now convinced we are living the same life in parallel universes. Addison cries over everything too and it drives me batty - she even cries when you are in the process of giving her what she wants!!! This almost-3 business is so, SO much worse than the "terrible twos".

(and I'm an 18 year old trapped in a 30 (almost 31) year olds body... I feel your pain there too.

Aaaaaannnndddd... Today was the first day of school, so I feel like I ran a marathon! I'm off to bed... Hugs to you!
