the terrible twos

The Sweet Potato is a very sweet boy. But he’s about to turn two, and that chemical thing that happens in the brain of toddlers is definitely happening to him.

Cranky. Irritable. Easily frustrated. Hey wait, that’s me.

No seriously, the boy got on my last nerve last night, and all I can do is think, “this will pass.”

Doesn’t every child go through a phase where they demand a bath, then decide that you are the worst parent on earth for bathing them, and then kick and scream when it’s time to get out of the bath (yes, the very same bath he was kicking and screaming to stay out of)?

On the plus side? He’s finally learned to say the Bee’s name.

Cutest thing ever.

    You have my sympathy. Being childless, I have only experienced the puppy version of the terrible twos. There’s not a lot of kicking and screaming but there’s an awful lot of chewing.

    I hope that this time passes quickly.

    that is cute – I mean the name thing not the terrible twos thing.

    That’s funny, that’s my saying when my kids have me frustrated. “You’re on Mommy’s last nerve!” or simply “Last nerve!!!” The terrible twos are long over for me, but the phases continue!

    Yes, fortunately the SP is not into destroying things by chewing on them (although there is a fair amount of random coloring).
