Terrible Twos?

As Lea quickly approaches 20 months old (tomorrow!), I am beginning to wonder what our near future will be like. She is so much more independent than a couple months ago... wondering off without looking back, running aimlessly into the wide open and wanting to do things without assistance. I am so proud of her for learning and growing. I want her to be independent.  But I am also a little scared. I am scared because my baby is growing up so fast but I am also scared because I'm not 100% certain that I can handle an independent, sassy, 2 year old girl!

Some people say there's no such thing as the "Terrible Twos" and some people swear by it. I guess it just depends on the child, the parents and how it's all handled. Is it really going to be TERRIBLE? I don't think so. It can't be that bad. I just have to remember to take the stressful moments with a grain of salt and laugh about it. Yes... today I had "THAT child" at library story time... but tomorrow it will be someone else's child... as least, I hope so! ;)


  1. Wine. Wine gets you through the rough days. :) I saw my sweet angel transform before my eyes. Sure, not ALL days are challenging, but there are definite "terrible" moments! haha

  2. I don't know Laura but I TOTALLY agree! *cheers*

    Some days, just in this last week, I wonder how I will make it through this entire stage. I wonder how to get my angel back. I wonder how many time one child can sit on the floor and shriek at the top of her lungs (A LOT OF TIMES!) for no apparent reason other than not getting her way.

    What I'm saying is that lately, my child is THAT child, all the time! So, we can be in it together! We savor the beautiful moments, it's all we really can do.

  3. It's the whining. I can't take it. It's AWFUL. But we still think Aidan is the most adorable, wonderful thing 98% of the time. The other 2....well......not so much.


Have something to say? Let me hear it!
