I apologize in advance for the lack of editing, for some reason when I add a new post it doesn't offer me editing options.
DSS is 5, and has been an only child at our house... (I was a foster parent to 4 siblings at one point in time but that was years ago) and recently we've gained guardianship of X (DSS's younger brother) who happens to be thriving in the Tiresome Three's... My brain was set to parent a 5 year old, it's not like having a baby and raising them to be 3, this is totally different, I had actually forgotten (until yesterday) that 3 year olds still nap in the afternoon, I've forgotten what we should be learning... I'm working on remembering and developing a schedule that works for us, but wow I truly had forgotten what a difference those two years can make on a young child... I'm glad it didn't take me long to remember most of it. Wish me luck, and I welcome advice!
