This particular toddler phase is a lot easier for me the third time around. I'm a little better at knowing when to help and when to wait, and a lot better at budgeting some extra minutes for getting dressed. Pretty soon he will be able to do it all by himself, right? Didn't we all suffer this pain when we were two, this wanting to take care of ourselves without needing help? Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure I still make these same faces when I look at our laundry pile.
