3 years ago, almost to the day, I posted a few pictures of this kid and asked if there was a cure for crankiness.
Well, I still wonder that same question today.
My middle child is the sweetest, most helpful and funny little guy I know.
But, he turns cranky and impossible at the drop of a hat.
It could be that he messed up his paper,
he wants a snack,
he doesn't want to put on his clothes,
he doesn't want to eat dinner,
he doesn't want to buckle his seat belt,
his sister is bugging him or his stuff...
and the list goes on.
It's really sad to say but he's grumpy and whining about 75% of the time.
I've become a pushover mom because I know if James is happy, we can all be happy.
If he's on a cranky rampage, watch out!
I'm hoping that when he turns 4 next week a switch will turn on,
and he will learn to grow up and be happy.
But, I think that's just wishful thinking.
Afterall, he was acting just like this 3 years ago as a baby.
It may be a personality thing.
Disclaimer (otherwise I will feel bad):
I love you, James. I really do. If you read this sometime down the road I want you to know that you hold a very special place in my heart. You force me to be on my toes, always searching how to make you smile. You bring me to my knees in prayer because I know Heavenly Father knows you best. You are my little rebel, and I know you just want to be loved. I'm trying my best and will never stop wanting to make you content and secure.
