Dear Thing 2,

Can the whining just stop. It is wearing my patience down to a nubbin. I'm working hard at being respectful of your feelings but day after day after day of it is more than I can stand.

I'm actually sitting here considering not doing the fun thing I had planned because I know there will be some sort of meltdown and I don't know if I can handle it in public. Again.  At least at home I can physically remove myself from the room. At Disneyland? Not so much.

Other than that, just keep doing what you've been doing. The art, the play, the dancing, the singing, the reading and writing and exploring have all been wonderful and I'm so excited to see your reaction to Israel. 

I love you!
