Life with a two-year-old



The sweetest, most cheerful baby I've ever met, has suddenly realized something: he's two years old.


His opinions on things are so strong, that he says "NO" with his entire body.


Nothing that I suggest is "OK" with him...until he suddenly decides that it was HIS idea all along.


Mr. Sunshine has turned into Mr. Make Mommy's Life A Stressful Wreck, and there's no help for it.


Some days, by the time Greg gets home from work, I've had the "fight" beaten straight out of me, and I don't feel able make even the smallest decision.  Someone asks me if they can have more dressing on their salad, and I turn into a stammering mess.  My nerves are shot; it's exhausting.


But then there is that delightful smile.


And the belly laughs.


And once again, I am charmed by my little social terrorist.

This too shall pass....

Look at that belly! That diaperbutt! That smile!!!

Good idea to take these pics while you both were calm and happy. They may be the one thread you grasp to maintain your sanity for a while longer. ;-)

p.s. love the "blah nobody cares" tag. You poor tired mama, you. Remember, this will pass and then you'll be heading for the :::gasp::: TEENAGE years! Oh, honey, let me tell you... whew!

Oh my, I have a 2 year old too. I completely feel your pain. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one with a toddler terrorist.

How has the time passed so quickly? I remember when he was born!
