A lot of the time I have the thought, "If only I could get inside their heads, parenting would be so much easier!" Penny, while very vocal, is at the age of being unable to express herself and her needs adequately. As in, she can express herself, but we frustratingly don't always know what she is trying to tell us. And we don't really know what she is thinking. We can only guess, and wait for those awesome moments where she gives us insight to her thoughts. While not being "inside their heads" can be frustrating, waiting and watching their little personalities and preferences unfold adds an element of surprise and mystery to our daily life.
