With both of my boys I was definitely not amused when they "pushed the boundaries" of what they were allowed and not allowed to do, but with Hayley, I have to admit it's a little different. I actually find myself smiling and maybe even a little happy that she is pushing the boundaries. Why? Because it means that she is comfortable...she's at home. She gives me that little smirk and does what I just told her not to do again and runs away laughing. You know...a typical two year old that wants to test every ounce of patience in you?! So I guess I view this test a little differently this time. To me it says that my little girl feels safe. She knows that she can push the boundaries, end up in time out and that I will still love her. So for right now, I can say that I am actually enjoying one of the more challenging parts of parenthood. Ask me in a few months....I may tell you otherwise!
