My seven year old is going through orthodontic treatments, and told me yesterday that she wished she was three again. I am going through drama with my mother, and I told my daughter I felt the EXACT same way that she did.
I guess life gets tough at any age. Your daughter's drama is SO perfect a description of three year olds.

You are making it very difficult to maintain my illusion that three will be better than two.

My three-year-old is doing the EXACT same thing. They could hang out together and we could go for cocktails.

Aww... I'd like to say she'll outgrow it, but I'm still inside the house, cursing Mr. Sun and bumping into things.

Awwww... so beautifully expressed. Their problems are so basic that sometimes I feel guilty about my own, which sometimes feel superfluous in comparison.

toddlers are to sensitive to the sun!! my 2.5 year old is always saying that the sun is "bothering" him whenever we're in the car. i think it's pretty hilarious. especially when he starts yelling at the sun. oh, yeah, it gets really serious.
