Sebastian is now three! He got a Batman mask, and two superhero action figures for his birthday, plus a few workbooks and a football. He was overjoyed.
We are working every day on his temper. Sometimes he melts down because he is tired or stressed. But other times, he is trying to get what he wants. We are taking it a day at a time, distinguishing between the two, and trying to connect and comfort him when he is beyond reasoning, but being firm with our boundaries and reliable with our consequences when he is just trying to manipulate us. Sometimes its hard to tell the difference!
The sweet moments throughout the day, however, keep me in the game. His little laugh and playful attitude are truly precious!
