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.)
The difference now is, he can talk. And he's learning like a little sponge that mimics what we do so well, you can't help but laugh! He scolds Mommy and Daddy, wagging his pointer finger at us like a pro. He'll angrily hush the dog if he barks too loudly. And he's the first to point out if anyone in our home is doing something they shouldn't be doing. "Mommy where's your placemat? Mommy!?!"

What have we done?

What we've created is a vicious circle of sorts. If we scold him for scolding us, he scolds us back, then we scold him, then he to us.. and it never ends. If we ignore his little demanding fits, then he's essentially getting off scott free.

We may just have to chalk this one up to the lovely Terrible Twos.
