I told everyone that I was soooo lucky because I never got terrible 2's or 3's....



She was an angel at 4.




Now at 5 she talks back, doesn't listen.... and she's a pain..

I teach prek and I notice a huge difference between the 4 yr olds and the ones who turn 5. It's like an I start shift in attitude.



My dd is also 5 and she used to be so sweet and now she's a mouthy little sneaky brat. Idk what happened :shock: she does just rediculus things like turn on her elextric toothbrush and let it run on the counter while she sits on the toilet not bushing so we think she's in there brushing her teeth :shock: like who does that?!?! She's 5 going in 16.

Both my sons have been like that when they were 5 & yet my daughter's always been really good even now & she's 8.
The youngest was a terrible little monster when he was 5, terrible temper tantrums when he couldn't get his own way, he'd be demanding, very sneaky, helping himself to food & not listening to a word I was saying.
He was 6 in December & it's only over the last month he's started calming right down. He's a sweet lovable little boy when he wants to be who's got the gift of the gab hehe :)

Omg ds1 has turned into a little snot! I swear he has always been a little mouthy but now he is just a little smart ass the remarks that come out of this child's mouth! It's like I look at my husband and I'm like where would even here something like that to say it or know how to say something like it! He drives me insane sometimes ds2 is 4 weeks and I ask ds 1 to be quiet please and find something quiet to do and he will walk in the room and just talk louder than his regular voice and he will make annoying squeeks and screams just to get under my skin. I hope he grows out of this. He used to be such a little loveing sympathetic caring little boy :(
