    Default Please tell me this is phase....

    My 4.5 year old DD is driving me up the wall. I love her to bits, but I am running out of patience. No, scrap that... I HAVE run out of patience.

    She will ask me the same question over and over because she doesn't listen to the answer. I counted 4 times that she asked me a variant of the exact same question this morning.

    She is also having a lot of trouble remembering instructions. She used to be excellent at this, so I'm having trouble being patient about it, because I KNOW she can do it.

    It doesn't seem like such a big deal when I type it out, but it is driving me up the wall.

    Can anyone relate? Am I the only impatient mother out there? Will my DD ever pay attention to anything I say ever again ?

    I sure hope that it is a phase as my 4.5 year old son is exactly the same!

    It is only 9:30am and I have already lost my patience for today.

    Thank goodness I'm not the only one!

    Is this a new thing for your DS? Maybe it is a phase...
