Terrible 3's

I'm not trying to complain. Maybe I am. But are all 3 1/2 years olds as hard as Reagan? She seriously throws tantrums over the silliest things. Yesterday she had a tantrum over me eating half of her otter pop. Maybe I shouldn't have eaten it. I understand that. But it was melting and Skyler and I thought it looked good. She had already had one too. Anyway, that is not the point. When she saw what had happened she FREAKED. She yelled and screamed for a good 20 minutes. Now this happens probably AT LEAST once a day. Sometimes on a bad day it is several times. I'm just wondering if this is normal. If it will EVER get better. It feels like it won't. It feels like I am going crazy. Actually, I think I already AM crazy. It feels like I'm going crazier. How do moms stay sane? How do you learn how to not resort to the immaturity level of your child. Like sticking out your tongue at them, repeating everything they say, or having your own adult temper tantrum of sorts. I never thought that motherhood would be this hard. It tests my limits each day.
Disclaimer: I do love Reagan. At times she is very charming and cute. That is what is so hard. I KNOW she can act better.

Fun stuff!
