No one warned me of FEISTY FOURS

I’m at a point where I can almost say that I despise the age of 4. What people vent about in the terrible two’s apparently multiplies itself and adds on a vocabulary and an opinion in the feisty four’s. WHY DID NO ONE WARN ME!?!? I was totally unprepared for this. I was expecting it in the twos, which in turn was terrific-twos for us… guess that’s how it caught up to me later. *sigh*

If my daughter ever reads this when she grows up she will know how much a pain in the ass she is right now. For every wonderful moment I shared with her this year, I have two frustrating ones to match.

She turns 5 in about four months. I’m counting down the days and pray that it gets better soon.

I have tried my hardest to be patient and keep my cool. But damn….


I found an entertaining comparison of the Terrible Twos vs. Feisty Fours. I’ll take 2 over 4 any day!

  1. I’m laughing reading this because I’ll have to ask my mom about this. They have me on video at my 4th birthday party and I was a total brat. My aunt got me little boat shoes and I went on and on about how they were boy shoes and I wasn’t going to wear them. Lol. Super funny since my Sperrys are my fav shoes now.

  2. I had a hint of things to come when one of my twin daughters was 3. I learned a whole new definition of stubborn! 4 was indeed a very tough year with her. She’s 14 now, and it has been better for quite a while. So, here’s hoping it improves in due time for you, too. 🙂
