This Terrible Two Stuff is Just Terrible
No joke, two-year-olds are freaking challenging. My kid isn't even two yet!! It's not going to get worse, right? It's this defiance nonsense. It doesn't seem to matter what it is that I'm asking/suggesting. She doesn't want anything to do with it.
Everything that was easy is now hard. Getting dressed, showering, getting into the carseat, potty time. Everything that was hard is now impossible. Eating, playing nice with the dogs, cooking with a toddler present.
I must have cleaned up 30 pee puddles this weekend. She REFUSED to pee in the potty. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem except that she also REFUSED to wear a diaper or training pants or even just pants for that matter. She just wants to run naked and pee everywhere. She also now REFUSES to eat at the table. She acts like her chair is trying to kill her.
I know I'm just being exceptionally cranky because DH and I have been sick for like 2 weeks but this whole toddler thing has got me reconsidering having a second child. Please tell me it ends at some point. Or, at least commiserate with me and tell me all the awful things your children do so that I know I'm not alone.
