I hate potty words but the more attention I give it the worse it gets. my kindergardener learned how to read and spell the word but yesterday not butt but but. the whole evening was so fun.
Yep. Body part names are shocking as well to my fellow. I know why, his older brother 10 thinks it's hysterical when baby says something shocking.

I am loving reading these. Dd is 22 months old and got started on tantrums when DS was born. He is now 9mos old and DD has perfected the terrible twos stereotype,

When my sister was two, she CUT HER HAIR, PEED on the wall, squeezed diaper cream on the wall, and rubbed soap into the floor. When I was two, I intentionally knocked over a glass bottle of olive oil, and then poured an open can of pineapples on top of it, when my mom turned her head for 5 seconds. When my twin cousins were two, then got up at six am, and took the dog for a walk WHILE THERE PARENTS WERE ALSEEP. They also got up really early a different day, and one of them went outside, and the other one climbed onto THE ROOF through his bedroom window. On one Easter, they got up before their parents and got easter grass ALL OVER THE PLACE. Another time, they poured an entire gallon of milk on the floor.

Thank you for this response. I have two daughters, five and eight, and I adore them even in their rough moments. I am determined to enjoy their childhood and teenage years--ALL of their teenage years. Mostly in rebellion of my mother, whose mantra is that teenage girls are terrible people. All I ever have heard about my childhood is how bad my mom thought I was as a teenager (guess taking AP classes, being on honor roll, making all-state choir, and playing varsity soccer was just too much badness for her....) Anyhow, I am very determined to have a good experience with my daughters when they're teens.

As for the wonderful women with two year olds: my girls were actually harder at three years, not sure why. But what you are experiencing is developmentally normal and even necessary. When they assert their little wills, "NO!", it is a process of learning how to differentiate themselves from the other people in the environment. It is necessary for them to go through this stage in their growth process. It always helped me to understand this when the tantrums flew. Read up on Erikson's Psychosocial stages and other lifespan development theories and you can see how this fits in with the bigger picture of development.

Hang in there: you have the MOST important job in the world right now and the rewards will be great. God will richly bless you for your attention to the little ones.

I'm here, too!

I've noticed a lot of the naughtiness in these posts has to do with bathroom functions. I did Elimination Communication w/DD and she potty trained around 18mos and now uses the toilet by herself with no shenanigans. Something to think about for any future little ones, maybe?

Right now my biggest struggle would have to be her picking on her 9mo brother. How do I get her to stop hitting?!

Great thread!

My mother got her revenge the day I called her and asked, "mom, after you stopped drinking, how did you keep from killing us?".


I've made it past two, three times now, but my latest is destructo-child. Everything out of the cupboards and drawers, not a single DVD can remain on the shelf (or even in it's box!). But oh my, that giggle as you chase her down the hall...who needs therapy?
