The Terrible Fours

Well, it’s been a while since I last posted, and that’s mostly because my oldest daughter is going through a rough stage. She’s acting more tween-like than preschooler-like. Whew. It’s not easy. We’re trying to help her understand how her actions and attitude affect those around her. She seems very self-absorbed lately and I’m sure it’s a normal part of discovering her independence. We just have to guide her and make sure she understands that she is not the only person in this house, or the only kid in her classroom at school.

She’s also been asking a lot of questions about life and the world, and I’m doing my best to foster a sense of curiosity in her. She’s so smart and I know she’s going to enjoy growing up with the freedom to decide for herself what she believes is true about the world. That’s something I never had, so I must admit – I’m a little jealous. 🙂

Anyway, sorry for the delay in posting. I’m hoping to post more as time allows. Stay tuned for more photography as well!

  1. I have a 4-year-old too (and a 7-year-old and a 2-year-old). Tell us more about what you do to foster her curiosity! I’d love to know.

  2. Hello Bee,

    I’ve followed your blog for a while — it’s one of the few that deal with parenting without religion. I have your website on my blogroll at http://www.atheistdad.wordpress.com, and wondered if you’d be willing to list my site under your recommended websites.

    Warmly,
