If you guessed “things Gwyneth has had screaming angry tantrums about today,” you win a set of raw nerves and a headache.
I gave in on the shirt, because who the hell cares. But the rest… it’s a wonder she has a voice left.
I’m assuming we’ve reached “threenager”. I could do without it. Fortunately, she’s remarkable the rest of the time. It really does make up for it. I think the snuggles and kisses and conversations and play are like the hormones that flood your body after childbirth – they fog your mind to the reality of the preceding moments and make it possible to do tomorrow.
