Short post ahead because I really should already be in bed asleep.
My 3-year old rolled her eyes at me tonight. ROLLED HER EYES. Suddenly, she was 15. And I was taken aback. I'm not afraid to admit it. I told her no and she rolled her eyes. Perfectly, as if she'd been doing it all along. It was the first time I had seen it and it was executed so perfectly. I said (in my best mom voice), "Sometimes no just means no." Her reply? "And sometimes, mommy, no really means yes!" Oh my.
So here is my question: I hear that age 4 is actually much more peaceful than 3, is this true? Or just a myth? I must know. I keep holding on to the hope that 4 is actually that age when things "settle down". I'm kidding myself, aren't I?
