IF THE TERRIBLE TWO'S DON"T KILL ME..............

Posted on: March 3, 2008 1:13 pm
 

HELP.................My house, my mind , and my life have been taken over by the terrible 2's.  Where did my sweet angelic little girl go?  Over the last several days she has been replaced by a she devil that has the most piercing scream you have ever heard.  She is willful and stubborn.  She makes taking her anywhere absolute torture.  She won't sit on the potty and throws a fit at absolutely nothing.  In short she is 2 and every bit of it.

If both of us make it through this stage it will be a miracle.

I have been told that my bundle of joy acts the exact same way that I did when I was her age.  My parents tell me that she every bit the stubborn willful, and temperamental child that I was.  All of the attitude and mocking that I get from my daughter is all made worth it when I hear the words I heard tonight when I tucked her in.  "I love you daddy."  I would not trade her for anything.  My wife and I consider ourselves to be two of the luckiest people in the world, just because we have her.

dook, the grandparents will lie through their Polidented teeth on that front. We come to pick her up at Mimi's house, find a house with toys and scribbled-on walls, chocolate milk in puddles on the floor, and a dog cowering in the corner, and that woman has the gall to say, "Oh she was a perfect angel and didn't give us any trouble at all!"

To which we both point and scream, "LIAR!!!!"

Oh no, I have earned every bit of what I am getting.  My mother just sits back and laughs herself stupid.

2's are fun...

I'll give you the same advice my parents gave me.

"Now you know how we felt when you were 2. The Apple doesn't fall far from the tree."

Do with it what you will.

dook recommends a 1/5 of jack...not for Lauren for you and LD.


small fry was not that bad at two, three was worse...then four, and oh my he speaks his mind and mocks me...my mom says he is packed full of firecracker punch like me...my payment for what i did to her...and he will be five..here soon, but then you have a small moment of clarity, where they come up to you and say i love you mama and give you a snotty slobbery kiss, and that is why we have kids.

Yes, I too thought the 2's were tough.  Weeks of whining and a general abuse of her parents by my daughter in between weeks of joy and cuteness beyond belief.  Then we had another child and it has become nearly unbearable.

My daughter just turned 3 and we did all that we could to prepare her for being a big sister, but it hasn't helped apparently.  I don't understand how a person can scream for literally an hour straight without losing her voice or passing out.  Bedtime has become an absolute disaster.  We have tried rewards, screaming back, no naps, laying in her bed, leaving the light on, and several other strategies to an utter failure.  We are at our wits end and just hope that this phase is short lived.

Good luck LP's and all other parents of younguns.  Remember this too shall pass.  Good lord willing.
