Terrible Two’s???

on May 24, 2012

Who says the two’s are terrible???


Actually it starts around 16 months (in my humble opinion) and slowly builds as they months go by and I’m not sure terrible is the right word.

Hmm….frustrating, annoying, exhausting, make you wanna pull your hair out-ing. Sigh. Now I’m not even using proper grammar. That should tell you the state I’m in.

Baby girl is on an emotional rollercoaster lately and has decided to take me for a ride! She’s up, then she’s down and when she’s down….SHE’S HYSTERICAL! I don’t mean that as in hysterically funny either. I mean falling down on the ground, tears, screaming and throwing things…kind of hysterical. Problem is you don’t even see it coming sometimes. One minute she’s playing with her sister or singing a song, the next minute, I see a pout forming, “NO” spilling from her lips for no reason that I can figure out and then when you ask what’s the matter…..???? ‘Complete and total meltdown’.

When she’s in this state, nothing can soothe her. If it was something she wanted, she no longer wants it. If she was hungry and didn’t vocalize, she is no longer hungry, which is when the food ends up on the floor. If she is tired, she is too busy screaming to relax. What happened to my ‘happy, go lucky, mischievous’ little baby??? I tried to remember Diva girl at this age and if it was this bad, and I know I experienced the so-called terrible two’s….but this somehow feels like a new phrase should be coined. Tyrannical Toddler Time?  Crazy Kiddie Years?  Attack of the Hostile Offspring? Ballistic Brood?

Maybe I’m exaggerating. It could be the fact that Baby girl sent my cell phone flying across the lawn and proceeded to fall into a mass of screams and tears on the walkway in front of our house today.

Is it bad a thing that it took me a few seconds to decide which one I was going to pick up first…….?

Relax! I picked the baby up first. After all, she was closer!
