Terrible Two's In Full Effect

Me Too has about 3 weeks until we celebrate her 2nd birthday but the 2 year old in her is definitely here. I really hate the term "terrible two" because my baby is NOT terrible - nothing about her is terrible. But, her behavior lately is definitely not my favorite! She goes the opposite way that I want her to, says yes when I say no or no when I say yes, and the tantrums...oh the tantrums. Throwing herself on the floor, kicking, screaming, crying...the works! You can't blame her, she's learned from the best! Big Bear is a champion tantrum thrower. What's funny is that we were talking about this at school this afternoon and Me Too's teacher and the director absolutely do not believe me. My kids are SO good at school. We get home and bam...I've got completely different kids. So, what am I going to do about this? Throw a new baby in the mix. How smart am I?

Monster is going through this stage too. It is like a switch was flipped the day he turned two. His tantrums are relatively mild, but still frustrating to me. Good luck with yours!

My Emily is in the middle of this too. She goes through the works. It's gotten to where I don't like to take her with me on my errands because when she wants something and can't get it, it's possible she'll have meltdown. And in my case, she's about 42 lbs and its difficult for me to carry her out of a situation! Thank the Lord there is hope because my other two kids finally outgrew that stage (somewhat-hee hee):)
