LOL, LOL....Uhm........I bagged them up, took them too my van, I live in a toy store, I thought, OK, at least, I'll have some room to walk LOL, I know that wasn't the correct thing.
I went to the bathroom, came back, more dolls were out, this time, she picked them up, she didn't want too this is an understatement, but she did, people are right, consistency is the key, at times, I get so tired of pleading, I give in, this is where I am at fault. Hannah can only be reasoned with, if, it benefits her right then and there;-) I'm afraid she was over-indulged, me, trying to make up for her "Father" not being around. I'm probably my child's problem.
I'm not above spanking, I'm not, it just makes me feel guilty later, and makes me feel like my mother;-D. If I count, I'll pause "Mom, you left out four"............................. I got a bear hug tonight;-))) for my complaints, I wouldn't trade her for the world;-) It's just nice to know, that this is probably a stage, is "Normal" and I'm not failing her drastically.
I have guardianship of my sister, I've had her, thinking back, well, she's 34 now, she moved in with me when she was 17....She's legally blind, slightly mentally challenge, makes for a long day at times. I Love her to death, I wouldn't have it any other way, yet, there are days I wonder "Why me";-) You're lucky you got Samantha young she probably views you as her parent.
