What age did you have the hardest time with, with you kids? Not tantrums, hormones, and back talking, etc. I'm thinking along the lines of emotionally hard on you.
My baby turned five today and it has been a hard week leading up to today. My baby is five. She is now old enough for kindergarten. She is old enough to go to school every day, for a longer period of time. She keeps promising me that she'll be as sweet as my little four year old. She is such a doll. One day I said to her, "I wish you could stay four forever!" She replied "That isn't Heavenly Father's Plan." True, true baby girl.
I know that they all have to grow up, and I know harder times will come. This milestone has set me back emotionally. I love my girls and I am grateful for everyday. It is fun watching them learn and grow, but I didn't expect it to be this hard.
