Run, hide, save yourself!!!!! The Terrible Two's have arrived!!!!!! Still pretty darn cute though.....

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'!!!". 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 those of you who have lived it those of you who are done with it 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 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.


  1. Oh it is always so much nicer to see someone ELSE going though a "phase" for a change. :-)

    But take heart... after the Terrible Twos, you get the Treacherous Threes, followed by the Fall-Out Fours, and the Ferocious Fives... I don't think I'll take this conversation beyond that as I'm sure it will just start getting too depressing. :-)

    Ah, I'm kidding. Its all good. But yea, 2 years old, and they realize, "I have Self Will" and "I can make decisions" :-) Much like a husband around the 10 year mark in thier marriage. Eventually the 2 year old will realize that thier "opinion" and "decision" don't really account for much... again... much like the husband.


  2. Treacherous Threes!?!?!?!? Fall-Out Fours!?!?!?!? Ferocious Fives!?!?!?!? Whoa, whoa whoa....hold on just a second here!!!! One year!!! ONE YEAR of attitude is all I signed up for!!!! It's in my Daddy contract somewhere!!! Ummmm....what???? It isn't??? Long haul???? Oh.

    WHAT?!?!?!? In three years I get to make decisions?!?!?!?! NO WAY!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhh I get it Adrian....yer teasing me aren't you?!?!?!?

  3. I prefer the term "bestowing wisdom upon thee" to "teasing"... but teasing works. :-)

  4. Wisdom is a fountain of life to him who has it.
