I think Sofia and Carl Philip are just lucky to have so mild tempered children. But even Alexander wriggled out of Sofia's grasp when she tried to pull him up to her lap
I must say I feel sorry for wee Leonore...it feels she's been branded as "The Brat" of her generation and her "rolling-running around" will follow her till she's old and grey
All kids are different even within one family. One is mild, others are timid and silent, some are clingy, others like to be more independent and explore, some are chatty and inventive and I could go on and on.
Besides when kids are tired and don't get their usual bed/nap time, they can turn cranky and its not that easy to reason with them.
I sincerely hope motherhood has changed Sofia's beliefes and values, and perhaps she would be strickt mom to her daughter, but till she has not regretted her dubious past...I find it hard to like her.
