Toddler days can be so fun! They love to play, laugh, explore, sing and dance, and absorb their environments like little sponges.
I am relishing these days, who knows when my baby will stop willingly give me hugs-a-plenty and mushy kisses? It goes by way too fast, so I will thoroughly enjoy every moment. So innocent. So inquisitive. So sweet.
And then, you tell her NO…
I intervene, offer suggestions, she calms down a little.
It was a no-go, so the screams commenced…
The horror! How did my sweet little girl turn into such a menace at the drop of a hat? What happened to my happy, giggling princess? This lasted for a good 10 minutes. I don’t even remember what she wanted, I eventually had to ignore her and walk away.
This is starting to happen everywhere. Stores. School. Even at MJ’s basketball games. I had to drag her off of the court as she laid out screaming since I told her it wasn’t her turn to play. OY. This, too, shall pass.
This is the terrible two’s, people!
