The terrible twos have arrived

19 May

Is it just me or does this misnomer suck? The ” terrible twos” leads you to believe that from age 2 – 3 your child will throw many tantrums. This is inaccurate where the B is concerned. From the 12 month mark up until now we have been knocking on the door of the wicked “terrible twos” – and as of last week there is no doubt that they have arrived.

Spitting, hitting, biting, screaming, kicking, throwing – terror of a child. If the tantrum starts in a public place I simply look around as if saying “whose child IS this?” My child is an angel (haha that.has never been true but I can dream).

I guess we should be glad he is showing personality – even if it is of the defiant nature. I of course blame his difficult behavior on my husband and he blames it on me.

In the meantime I will keep the fridge stocked with beer and the wine rack stocked full of wine. The fun years have begun.
