Well, As a new parent, ( with my first child especially) I had read so much stuff regarding how to do this and how to do that...It actually started to drive me crazy. So by the time the second one rolled around I relied on my instincts more. I am a much calmer parents to some degree thankfully.......However, one thing that I held on to was having a… Continue

If you have a toddler, you have no doubt experienced the terrible twos. The frustrating screams that make you want to punch a wall, or put your head thru a wall. For us the terrible twos seem to be fueled by all the things my toddler is trying to become a perfectionist on. Most of his terrible two tantrums are because he can't get his shoes on right, or he's trying hard to put a puzzle together meant for a 4 year old, but he just had to have because it was… Continue

Ahhh...Remember my post on banning kids from public places? I kind of get it now. I was face to face with the terrible twos in the middle of a very busy restaurant yesterday. Continue
The day started out fairly well. I fed my 6 month old, and when my older daughter awoke my husband brought her downstairs and fed her breakfast while I got the clothes ready for the day. I took my shower and got my toddler dressed. We were headed to her Little Gym class.
I kind of had a feeling…

Yep, I am smack dab in the middle of them. While most of the time my son is very affectionate, humorous and just a typical boy, we have hit the full blown end of the world tantrums. For example, I tell him he can't have any more grapes because he's had like 30 of them and how about some toast. He starts repeating "NO NO NO!" and running away from me. Then he's back demanding again. I suggest other things to eat, or suggest not hitting "C" with the play golf stick, that if he does it again he'll… Continue

My two-year-old is getting really demanding these days. Not the kind of demanding that kids just naturally are, but the kind that's like... borderline diva. (Maybe wrong word choice, considering he's a little guy, but you get the picture.)… Continue

Things “They” Never Tell You…
As I make my way through the minefield of parenting, I have come to realize that there are far too many things no one ever bothers to tell you…BEFORE you have kids. It’s highly possible that these secrets are so closely guarded as to ensure the survival of the species. Whether or not these secrets would have changed my mind on… Continue

Now that I am embarking upon my fifth round of terrible twos, I think I finally figured it all out. I had a “eureka” moment today that I’d like to share.…

We are deep in the Terrible Twos Jungle. Just a few days ago we passed the half-way mark much to the relief to the majority of us who are on this safari. We would have celebrated that momentous occasion
but just as we passed the mark the Two Year Old decided she had an idea
of her own: a temper tantrum. Why? Mommy dared to shower.
Mommy tried to explain to the Two Year Old that it was fine, that although Mommy was a bit stinky, the idea of having a waterfall in the middle of… Continue

I Saw That Look...
....as I was taking my screaming, kicking two year old out of church on Sunday. Actually there was a variety of looks. There was the one of sympathy from the mother who has finally gotten her child raised. There was the one from the grandmother that said, "oh, just let her throw Cheerios all over the church, it's so cute". There was the one of relief from the mom who was wondering last week if she was the only one. There was the look of deep thought from the newlywed as… Continue

To hit the terrible twos: to hit head against wall because toddler decide to not cooperate in crucial moments such as when crossing the road. To scream at the top of one's head because one's child decide to play hide and seek in clothes rails in shops and won't listen when being called once, twice, twenty times. To loose one's marbles when toddler laughs at one's face when being told off.

I'm the new kid on the block here. I am fairly new to blogging but it gives me the chance to talk about my favorite topic- my kids! I'm one of those silly moms who lives and breathes her babies.
I have a little girl.....well diva. She is turning 2 this month and boy can she bring the drama! She's a good girl but certainly knows what she wants.
I also have a little man who is almost 6 months old. How the time has flown. He gives his smiles and giggles pretty easily. He LOVES to eat and… Continue
