Dutch and German..OH MY

A couple of month after my little girl turned 2...she had been headed down THAT road. Many parents out there know what I am talking about the TERRIBLE 2's. It seems that somedays, she is in timeout or has toys taken away more than anything. UGGGH. Fun times. We are trying  NOT to raise a spoiled brats.

Aquagirl's stubbornness sure does test our patience at times. My wife and I think that it has to do that she has so much German and Dutch flowing in her bloodline. Or maybe it is the female gene as well..lol. There are days when she wakes up with a mode good luck trying to get her in a decent one for that day.

We wonder on those days where did our sweet little girl went off to? I love that girl, but  sometimes...SOMETIMES..:) 

So to the parents out there. Do you any stories?

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Before I FallBefore I Fall by Lauren Oliver
My rating: Save It

Summary:
What if you only had one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all: looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it turns out to be her last.

The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. Living the last day of her life seven times during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death--and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing


My Thoughts:
 Well... I didn't love this book, I am glad that I picked it up. This book is similar to groundhog's day (the movie)and the movie Mean Girls. We follow Sam as she lives over each day after dying in a car crash caused by a drunk driver. Each day she does something different and does become a better person, which I do think gives young adults ideas on how to be a better person. So I think the lessons in the book are great, but reading about the same day over and over was starting to get on my nervous in the end.

I could not connect with Sam in this book book she was one of those girls that I could not tolerate in high school and she seemed nice, but her actions while she was alive was a different story.I was interested to see how she was doing to change each time that she live the same day. 

You can learn enough from this debut novel from Lauren Oliver.  I treat everyday like it maybe the last day I see my wife and daughter...I try ....boy I try to make sure the last words I say to tell is I love You.
