Raising kids is fun, just not when you're doing it. Later, much later you will say "Oh, that was cute"... or "I loved it when Stephanie/Amy did that." You can fill in the names of your kids, these were mine! When Amy and her family were here this summer we were discussing toilet training. They are in the midst of that passage of childhood. They will eventually be successful. I can tell you the exact day that Amy was trained. It was her second birthday, it was a big day! You never really know you're doing the right thing when you have to be stern. I used to second guess myself when I had to punish the girls. Childhood is hard, these letters prove it!
