Why Not?

So, Sydney's two, but I wouldn't call it terrible.  I feel like she's beginning to understand she can make some of her own decisions.
There is a bit of tension and some days we're both in tears.
I'm realizing I can't be her best friend and that hurts my feelings.
I love this child and there is no one else in the world I would rather spend time with.
Apparently, if I'm her best friend, I'm going to let her walk all over me.
I have to put my big girl panties on and be more of her mom and less of her friend.
Who says we still can't have fun while we're at it?

Verbal Spew

Sydney is growing ever so fast.  We're going through mood swings and attention fits.
It's had it's ups and it's had it's downs, but I do love being her mother.
The other day when going in to get her out of bed in the morning because she was talking to herself we had a funny little moment of attitude.
Opened the door to get her up and she says "no, shut the door.  I'm sleeping!"
Haha.  At least I can find a little humor in the attitude she's developing.
