When Landon turned three I was SO excited because I thought it would be the end of the terrible twos. Much to my dismay turning three only seemed to bring more temper tantrums and mischief. I was beginning to wonder if this stage was ever going to end and then it happened. About a month or so ago it seemed as though a magic change came over my boy. It's true the terrible twos (and threes) are finally over! Hallelujah. I don't know exactly when it happened, but it did. Suddenly my son is helpful, polite, and learning new things at a rapid rate. Now don't get me wrong he still has his moments where he makes me want to pull my hair out, and he has long way to go with learning not to torment his little sister (Tori) but overall I am so pleased with the little boy that he is becoming.
I think this all hit me on Sunday. I was in Nursery because Tori would just not behave anywhere else (November can not come soon enough). As I sat there I watched Landon and to my utter delight he was so well behaved. He followed directions, he cleaned up when he was supposed to, he paid attention to the lesson, and sang loudly during singing time. This was not the same boy who I had observed in Nursery only a few short months ago. For once I wasn't worried about how it would be when he had to move up to Sunbeams, I knew he would do just fine. I often get stressed out with being a mother and I sometimes can only see the negative so it is nice to be reminded every once and awhile that I really do have great kids.
