Grandma went to Utah the 5th of June for a week. There were a few reunions she was attending and visiting her family up there. She had a wonderful time and I'm so glad she enjoyed it. Ada was getting a bit feisty with her (super frustrating to me, can I just tell you). I think she was jealous of the attention I would give her. We spent some great time together playing and had a few play dates that week. It seemed to mend our relationship and I have to admit I feel she is finally changing. After she turned three I honestly thought I was going to lose my mind. She had more bad days by FAR than good days and I was feel VERY discouraged. EVERY thing was a fight and tantrum. June came and suddenly we were magically having more good days. Grandma came back and they were buddies. They watched movies together or played puzzles. It was such a blessing to have her finally calm down. So basically, 3 to 3 and a half is a nightmare. Glad to be out of that zone and dreading Rue getting there.
I'm finally starting to make a few friends in the ward. I even had one mom, Michelle, come over with her kids. It was a funny story. I saw her at the library and she seem frustrated with her 3 year old. We chatted a bit and all she expressed was how I'd felt with Ada for the past several months. I shared how Ada seemed to finally have grown out of that stage and there was hope for her. It was a bonding moment (-= and a friendship began. We've really enjoyed getting to know her and her two kids.
Rue has started helping with the dishes and talking a bit. I love it!
