Do you believe in growing pains? I do! There are just certain phases that Camryn goes through where her attitude is less than desirable, and she just seems uncomfortable being herself. During these times, she also complains about various aches and pains - most recently, she's said her leg hurts, her body hurts, etc. Last night at church she was whiny, didn't listen, and was just in a general funk, and that is not usually her. She's started crying when we put her in the nursery, and she used to adore the nursery. She's started crying again at bedtime, and we were slowly moving past that point. Also, this is not related to growing pains in particular, but I guess it's just part of her growing up. She had started picking up phrases and words we would rather her not say. Yesterday morning as I was getting her dressed she said, "Don't talk to me." Well, I swiftly handled that little situation. Then, last night, as she was running over to Jason to tell him goodnight, she tripped and turned around and said, "Stupid thing!" Now, we are very careful not to say words like stupid, dumb, crap, etc., around her because we obviously don't want her repeating them! So, we know she probably heard it at daycare or church, and just told her not to say it again. Having a 2 year old wears me out sometimes.
