Well, anyone want a 2-year old? He's cute, has sweet blue eyes, loves animals, loves trains, loves Elmo and Thomas, is super smart, and gives great kisses. I feel as if I should warn you about his few faults: he screams like a howler monkey many times a day, has stopped saying "yes" altogether (it was "yesh"), hates to be put to bed, hates to get out of bed, hates to eat when he's supposed to, begs to eat when we can't, bosses his older brother and sister around, wants to swing on swing for hours, thinks every toy in the house is his.....are you getting the drift?
I have never had a really bad "terrible two" kid. Parker was awful at three, Emi at four, but you COULD sort of reason with them. This is unreal. Today has been legendary bad. He had 4 time-outs and 5 tantrums in the first 45 minutes of my day. It seems that the more I sit down with him and give him undivided attention, he becomes bossier and even more demanding.
I know, I know....what am I doing having a fourth? I'm asking this same question right now. GRRRRR!
I will take any and all advice on keeping 2 year olds calm. I love this little strong-willed creature, but he's wearing me down! I don't mean to be a complaining person, just venting and seeking advice.
