The Terrible Twos have Arrived
Well the terrible two's are officially here. I have suspected as much over the past few weeks but now there is no denying it. TWO has always had a mischievous gleam in her eyes. This weekend while we were cleaning she went suspiciously quiet for a period of time. As moms we all know this quiet of getting into trouble so my husband went to investigate.
Our darling daughter was sweetly sitting on the bathroom floor with a roll of toilet paper spread out around her.--Now I thank the sweet Lord that she hasn't found the joys of putting things in the toilet or worse still, flushing but something had to be done to stop this behavior from continuing.--So my husband very sternly scolded her. He didn't yell at her, only firmly told her that what she did was wrong that that she will not do it again. You would think he yelled and disowned her. At first she tried to put it back (I had to bite my lip not to laugh at this attempt) and then she cried, and cried, and howled and turned into a full fledged temper tantrum with her throwing herself on the floor, throwing toys and hitting me when I tried to help her calm down. She was of course shown promptly to her room, but I know that this is only the beginning of this type of behavior.
Thank God, he made two year-olds cute and cuddly too or I don't know how many would survive this stage.
