Drink a Cup of Cement

What? Drink a cup of cement?
Yes. You read it right.
 
I am asking this of myself.
To harden up and pretty much deal with it.
 
I am not dealing with it (well enough).
'It' refers to my soon to be 19 month young daughter.
Whom I love very much.
Whom I dreamt of for years before she and her brother were gifted to us.
 
Since turning 16 months, I have been struggling with her.
 
Her tantrums. Her stubborness. Her determination. Her whinginess. Her clinginess. Her tears. Her cries. Her struggles with authority.
 
Oh, her clinginess. Every waking moment of the day. It exhausts me, totally.
 
I hope this phase passes soon.
