terrible twos anyone?

seriously it's the weather or the water or the AGE or something because the last week jade has been pushing every button she can find and has found some new ones, i have three injuries now that required either an ice pack a band aid or both. she's great for a bit then BAM evil jade comes out then good again.

ssshhh don't tell but she's been so good all day so far! we started the day with a tylenol for teeth and a cookie (organic banana arrowroot) so tylenol wasn't on an empty stomach. early nap and we shall see what the rest of the day holds!
last night was soo bad daddy swore three times in an hour, and mommy put her to bed at 7 (hour early) no story no cuddles nothing. pls tell me this is temporary!!!

omg kristi yes the 'no' word or any derivative of (not right now, in a bit, etc) are asking for pure terror to ensue!

We're here to! We had an hour of screaming today due to only having an hour of running around outside. And bedtime has been a nightmare recently, I'm fearing the next growth spurt that will make her tall enough to get the doorknob!

Yes! Bedtime has been crazy! She screams and rolls around and will not settle down!

There is hope ladies! I noticed in my kids that the terrible two's disappear sometime after their 3rd birthday. They can communicate more effectively and get better at doing things for themselves. That bit of independance does wonders for them. Aside from a melt down here and there from being made to come inside, their behaviour usually improves tenfold. However, my experience is with boys and Daisy seems to pass stages earlier than the boys did, cross our fingers!

Oh, ladies. I'm SO there with you. Maia can be so wonderful and then she can be CRAZY BABY. eeeeeek. It makes me fear the teen years...

As for the doorknob, I kind of hope Maia NEVER learns to open doors. Is that an option? LOL It reminds me of Jurassic Park and the velociraptors coming through the doors... just scary. Her being loose in her room is bad enough!!

Oh, yes. Some days the littlest things turn into delirious behavior. She screams, rolls around on the floor and is completely inconsolable. It's the worst when she is tired and I think two year molars are playing a part too. Some days will be relatively smooth and other days I am ready to walk out the door by 10AM.

She has also wants to be in control of everything. Time to change a diaper? She runs away. Daddy needs to wipe her hands? No! Only mommy. Or herself. The kicking me during diaper changes has to stop. I have not found a solution to that one and it's been going on too long.

Bedtime is also a challenge. She fights getting a diaper, getting PJ's on and even sitting to read books. It's all a game to her.

So.....last night Alison kept throwing her ball in the house. It kept hitting the coffee table. DH told her to stop and she would say no and run away. Then come back and do it over again. He finally said that if she throws the ball in the house again she was going to be put in time out. So....of course she did it and he followed through and put her in time out. She sat there screaming for a minute before getting up...running to her room and grabbing her little purse and say bye and walked to the front door. Really? She is going to run away at 2? The teenage years are going to be very interesting. HA!

OMG so sorry that i'm not alone but at the same time so glad that i'm not alone! kayla i hear you on walking out by 10 am, there have been days where she goes to her room door open light on music going and gate closed on the terms that mommy needs a time out! kristi you have my sympathy! that's too damn cute though with the purse at the door!
so we've noticed a scary correlation… my af started this morning, she's been an angel since it tried starting yest? OMG NOOO my girl is not allowed to get my pms! that will make for a very long childhood and beyond! we've noticed this before and just were hoping that it was nasty coincidence but now, we're not so sure! i know i release pheromones that affect dh (he gets lactose intolerant right after ovulation) sooo hoping that it's not getting her too Sad i will seriously look into full hysterectomy and be done with the hormones if i have too!!!

Very interesting...since Alison's wanting to run away last night and my AF started this AM. So maybe she was feeling my PMS? HAHA!
