Terrible 3's

In our house, terrible two's didn't exist. The kids were always pretty even tempered at two. But for some reason, once they turn 3, all things terrible within let loose.

Berlin, for example, ever since turning 3, cries over everything. Even just looking at her sets her off into tears and shouts of "leave me alone" or "I hate you mom!" (yes, I hear this alot for who knows what reason). The funny thing is if I leave her alone like she asks, she freaks out even more when I walk away. Needless to say the last few days have been, um, interesting in our home.

I remember Finn being the same way. Three years old was definitely his worst year. Guess I shouldn't be too surprised that it's kicked in with Berlin now. Seriously though, I'm so not ready for this again.

Here she is in the middle of a screaming/flailing/crying fit yesterday ... it was just one of many.
