brookeraymond This was yesterday. But except for the outfit, it could have been any day this week. Being three is a lot like PMSing so it seems. 16h
  •   aimeewenske Awww that is tough. But.. She still looks cute even when crying! Hugs to you both. 15h
  •   brookeraymond @andrea_bookscout Yes! I've heard that too. Having dealt with pretty bad PMS myself I can at least empathize with her. Doesn't mean I haven't lost my patience a bit, though. 15h
  •   brookeraymond @aimeewenske Thank goodness! And she always tells me she's sorry after a fit. Poor kid. 15h
  •   creativeholly oh, but she's such a pretty crier. 12h
  •   sevengreysweaters Oh the drama! People keep telling me "3 is so much harder than 2" and I have been refusing to believe it but alas, it seems to be true. :( 9h
  •   brookeraymond @sevengreysweaters It has definitely been true for us. And I'm guessing it might be harder for three year old girls because of the hormone surge I keep hearing about. I will be a listening ear if it happens to you too! 8h
  •   courtney_dj They just have to let it out and we just have to be there for them. :) (but man is it hard, and I see a lot of this in my future coming...) 8h
  •   brookeraymond @courtney_dj It is SO hard. Especially when it's more than just tears. Anger/anxiety/frustration have all been present this week. 8h

brookeraymond It has been a super rough week with this girl. SO many emotions. 2d
  •   celiacatalino It's a lot like that in our house, too. But I'm usually the one crying and apologizing. 2d
  •   nmew It's a rough road, being three! @brookeraymond 2d
  •   nmew Ps...tell Junie there are no tears allowed in those amazing shoes. @brookeraymond 2d
  •   urbanmegan We went through that a few weeks ago, it was intense. Seems to have leveled out -- for now. Middle of the day baths are great, as are lots of new adventures and movies/games/crafts for calming distraction when you just need a break. Days like that, I just get in bed with Welch and read & lounge with him...often he'll fall asleep from the exhaustion of the emotions. 2d
  •   brookeraymond @urbanmegan We've done a lot of the same things and they do seem to help. Glad to know we are not alone! 2d
  •   brookeraymond @nmew They are my favorite shoes. I want them. And you can't see the tiny white polka dots! 2d
  •   brookeraymond @celiacatalino LOL. I had to take a time out for myself in the middle of it all. I was going to burst. 2d
  •   brookeraymond @45walldesign Aw, thanks. I'm sure we'll be through this phase soon. It's a heart-breaking as it is frustrating. 2d

  •   jmwtson So cute!! She looks so grown up. 2w
  •   brookeraymond @jmwtson This is her cheesy smile! She is so grown up lately - even since you saw her two months ago! 2w
  •   nmew @brookeraymond if you go minivan,... 2w
  •   brookeraymond @nmew Hahaha! If only do it if we had enough kids that we needed it. 2w
  •   jmwtson It's an adorable smile! Can't wait to see you guys again. 2w
  •   urbanmegan Nope, probably suburban with 3rd on the way...but friends who have minivans always say it makes the most sense and they would never go back. I'm not sure why they don't put some of the great minivan features in regular SUVs. @brookeraymond 2w
  •   woodshedcoffee Last year when some friends were visiting with their kids we rented one and it was HEAVEN. I also have the best memories of our Chevy Astro from when I was a kid. And now with even just two I'm suddenly aware of how there's no space. But we get SUCH good mileage in our car. We'll have some tough decisions when this car kicks it. 5d
  •   brookeraymond I would seriously do it if we had more kids and my husband wouldn't gag just thinking about it. 5d
