There was ZERO fighting with this little chica today.
That’s a big deal… a REALLY big deal. All day…”thanks, Mom”…”ok, Mom”…”I love you, Mom”. We’ve been struggling the last couple of weeks…shoot, MONTHS would be more accurate. I’ve had to really think about what I’m doing and saying to her as her mother. She’s strong…very, very strong. I had a small phone conference with her preschool teacher a few weeks ago. I had so many questions regarding how she treats others at school, how she treats her teachers, how she handles ‘no’, etc, etc… Mrs. Wright had wonderful things to say about her…(Praise you, My Lord)…but… there was one little thing, “Sawyer always wants to be first. ALWAYS” Sawyer struggles with taking turns and always wants to be first at everything. She’s highly (to put it lightly) competitive and won’t take no for an answer. These qualities will definitely benefit her as a grown woman but as a 4 year old….this mama is WORN out.
Today was a breakthrough, a true breakthrough….not one fight, not one…..I should re-phrase that…not one fight WITH HER MOM…the boys, on the other hand….well they’re just gonna have to deal --- she is the only girl afterall
