Who needs dolls when there are duck decoys to play with? And when they’re on sale, my duck hunting family is buying all there is!
Addie is such a doll, if I do say so myself, but oh, boy .. she has a bad case of the “Terrible Twos”. It is funny to watch and it brings back lots of memories. I remember thinking Chad wasn’t going to be a terrible toddler but he was well into two before I felt like the Terrible Twos had taken over my sweet child. It’s the same with Addie. She’s 2-1/2 now and she definitely has a mind of her own and is not shy about letting you know how she feels. They spend so much time doing things with her, and she’s almost like a mini adult . . until she isn’t and then .. I had to laugh and kept reminding Nicole . . she’s going through that stage. It will get better and what I didn’t say is . . then it will get worse and she will be real hard to live with for many years! 🙂

We’re good enough friends for me to share this story. I think! Our oldest granddaughter was about Addi’s age. Mom was at her wits end with potty training. Otherwise intelligent child, what was the deal? One evening, at a family gathering, DGD announced, “I will use the potty when I am 3”. On the way home grandpa said ‘God help us if she is that stubborn’! Day of her birthday she put on big girl panties and never looked back! Now we call it determination! She and Gpa are working on a quilt for her and having a great time. She’s 22 now, an absolute joy!

That is funny. It’s good to see a child with a mind of their own but it can be challenging.
