I am just wondering if the worries and troubles of raising a kid get easier when the kid gets older...or are they just replaced by a new kind of worry? Right now, we are going through the terrible twos. I hear a lot of NOs and GO AWAYS and she often refuses to potty train. So, aside from the potty training, is this just the same as having a teenager? (LOL)

I would put off potty training if she is "refusing"- the best thing with the twos is to really be discriminate in picking your battles. This is the time to show her that mommy means business... But to also not let her feel defeated. They have such great ability at this age... but their logic and reasoning hasn't caught up. They can't distinguish a want from a need... it feels just as strong, kwim? I think it does get easier in that you begin to handle not knowing what you are doing better :) LOL- Parenthood is a humbling- bring you to your knees- experience. And from my own experience and that of my family who has raised all the way to adulthood, the frustrations and all that are forever, but your ability to handle them definitely grows.
