I recently joined a Comment Challenge through Blogelina. It gave me an opportunity to network with other bloggers, and read some blogs that I probably would not have had access to otherwise. This was an amazing experience. It reminded me about what I loved about blogging in the first place the opportunity to be speak honestly and simply to get your truth out there. I think it also gave me permission to share. Now, they’ve done it!!
I am firmly in the middle of the terrible two’s. I think most people get a break from the terrible two’s when their little ones go to sleep, but not me. No matter where she starts out, she will undoubtedly end up in our bed. Where she kicks me in the back, puts her cold hands and feet on me, and generally just disturbs my sleep. Putting her back in her bed after she is asleep may or may not work, but either way. My sleep is not restful.
Today, we went to Home Goods, because I was in dire need of some retail therapy. I had prepped her for about an hour on where we were going, that she would sit in the cart, and be a big girl for Mommy. She even seemed stoked to go. Fast forward to getting to the store. First, she wanted to sit in the front of the cart, and then the back of the cart, and then she wanted to walk and then she wanted to be picked up. Mind you this is all taking place while going down the first two aisles. She pitched such a fit that I took her by the hand, walked out the store, and drove the twenty minutes back home.
I said all this to say… HELP!! My eight year old kind of skipped the terrible two’s and my son who is now 16 years old. Well, his terrible two’s were a long time ago. How did you manage the terrible two’s? I see lots of time outs in this little one’s future.
