So I have heard all about the "Terrible twos". How the switch flips and all of a sudden it is like "Look out!!!". I of course have repeatedly said to myself "Self, terrible twos, shmerrible shmoos!!!". "Self, that's a bunch of poppycock!!!". "Self, it's all a big ruse!!!". "Self, that's the deal of the century that I ain't buyin'!!!".
Yep, I have said all that many times.......but those days are GONE!!!! DONE!!!! FINISHED!!!! HISTOIRE!!!! BYE-BYE!!!! KAPUT!!!!
Well we are a little less than one month into this glorious twelve month period of our precious, sweet, beautiful little girl being two years old. Now instead I am saying to myself "Self, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!". "Self, Poppycock shmoppycock!!!!". "Self, it ain't no ruse!!!". "Self, ok I'm buyin', I'm buyin'!!!".
Ok....so it is not all THAT bad. However, she did recently set a new record for huge fits!!! Wooooooeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!! She wanted to go outside to play in the cold, dark, night....and Mommy and Daddy said that "We will have to wait until tomorrow to go outside to play."......and...well....she did not approve of that response. She did not approve one bit!!! She got her shoes, coat, and hat on and she was NOT taking them off!!!....AND....she made it very, very clear that Mommy and Daddy were GOING TO put on their shoes and coats.
Anyhow.....after many attempts to sidetrack her we were successful and the hat, coat, and shoes came off, and we returned to being one big happy family.
So to all of you with kids older than two...to those of you who have lived it all....to those of you who are done with it all....to those of you who are laughing at me right now....thanks....thanks a lot!!! :-)
To those of you with kids under two...and you KNOW who you are!!!! (T and M come to mind....) GET READY!!!!!!! (insert Jaws theme here) It is coming!!!!!
She still sure is cute though!!!!! And getting taller....
Doesn't that picture just scream "Yep, I'm two, and I'm all it...and I'm very, very cute...so don't forget it!!!!"
Carolyn has been busy doing the craft show circuit!!
Shameless plug time to promote my wonderful, beautiful wife's home business venture that I think is very cool....if you want the perfect gift for that person who you have no clue what to get for Christmas (or for any occasion..)...something different, something they don't already have....something absolutely wonderful....I highly recommend Scentsy!!! Decorative warmers with scented wax melted by the heat of a light bulb instead of a traditional wick and flame.
Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
Clarissa will be extremely happy if you check it out.
