Say it ain't so

It's happening. Aliens are taking over Lil' Sis's body.

Oh the sweetness.

It's troublesome.


She's throwing fits, sprawling out on the ground, tossing her food, telling me, "NO," not sleeping well, not taking naps, screaming at me, getting mad about not doing things herself and just downright grumpy.

I knew this was coming. I can't stop it. I have to go with it, reach in and dig out my coping mechanisms and brush up on my survival skills. I once read that a few months before they actually turn two is the peak of the terribleness. Seems to be true. Don't worry, we'll get through it. Lots of park days, lots of praying and lots of chocolate.

However when three comes along I'm building a bunker.


Speaking of....



Yup. Still in that dress. Don't worry. It gets washed. Occasionally.

Love, love, love it! I forgot about the terrible stage, only Joshua seems to be in full force now! His 3rd bday is right around the corner....and I am scared! You'll have to remind me of coping mechanisms, and maybe we can buy chocolate in bulk?

Haha OK by three I totally thought you meant a 3rd baby. I was thinking maybe that was a sly way to announce it. Then after reading Melissa's comment it all clicked. Darn!

Oh the joys of the terribles! :)

We're right there with ya, girl! Mail me your extra chocolate.

I was fortunate to witness one of those tantrums Monday night, I was hoping she still took a binky so I could plug her up. She is still very cute even while tantruming.

hahahahahahahah Jill. Yeah right. Clearly my frustration didn't come through in this post with my children I already have! JK. :)

She IS still very cute when she's mad. And the terrible twos are quite as bad the second time around, right? You just have to laugh.

I think her tantrums are adorable, especially when she dramatically throws herself on the floor and weeps.
