What noone ever told me about parenting a toddler:
~Feeding Camden takes twice as long as before, so you need twice as much patience as he learns to feed himself. Extra patience when he is learning to feed himself with a fork.
~The exhaustion of running around after Camden every waking minute of the day. He NEVER stops running or exploring everything around him and within his reach.
~The pride I feel when he learns or conquers something new.
~That he would scream every time the phone rings because he wants to "talk". He LOVES to talk on the phone. :)
~The overwhelming feeling of love that washes over me when he says "Mama" and runs into my arms.
~That I would pray for wisdom for parenting skills every hour of the day. Especially when he's throwing a "toddler tantrum".
~The absolute joy of laughing with him every day. What a joy he is!!
~How blessed I feel every day that God has given me this amazingly fun, energetic, joyful, loving, and special little boy.
Thank you Lord!!
