So I feel like we just escaped the "terrible 2's" with my 3 year old son, only to be invaded again with them from my 21 month old daughter!

Here is a recap of just one of her many tantrums this weekend...

Yesterday we were all at home and my 3 year old son and 21 month old daughter were playing together. When my son wouldn't give my daughter a toy she wanted, she decided to hit him on the arm. My husband squatted down and explained to her that we don't hit and that she needed to go sit in "time-out". She looked at him with a big smile and then went to pick up her baby doll to walk to time-out. My husband stated that she needed to go by herself and couldn't bring any toys with her. With that, she gave him a smirk, threw her baby doll across the room, put her hands on her hips, and stormed off to time out. I kept a cool front and showed my disappointment on my face (I couldn't let my kids see my true feelings!). But on the inside, I was laughing hysterically!!! How does a 21 month old learn to have that much attitude? I wonder if it's a girl thing, because I don't remember my son getting like that with is tantrums.

So then I started thinking - my son's tantrums started when he was about 18 months old - I distinctly remember them because at the time I was 8 months pregnant with my older daughter. I'm not really sure when his ended and hers started because the past 5 months have basically been a whirlwind with the birth of my second daughter. But I realized this weekend that my son has become so much easier to deal with and communicate with over the past 6 months and my daughter is just getting increasingly more difficult. I have been trying to remember and I think that the worst of the terrible 2's for my son were between 18 months and 2 1/2 years old. So trying to use the "glass half-full" mentality, things should get easier with my oldest daughter in less than a year! Just in time for my baby to enter the terrible 2's!!! Overall, I really do enjoy having my kids close in age, but there are times like these that I wonder what my husband and I were thinking - I can only imagine how the teenage years will be!
