Terrible Twos

by Ashlee Reynolds

The joys and excitement of the first year have come and gone; year number two is about to begin. It starts with him saying no, and wanting everything; then he brings out the tantrums and screaming when he doesn't get his way. Next he wants to start potty training, being as enthusiastic as can be; he doesn't want his diapers or pullups. He wants to be a big boy and not have those things; he fights and screams when he gets one put on. These are the terrible twos; he goes from angelic, needing mom, to being a little tyrant, completely independent. I wouldn't change him in any way, for he is wonderful as can be; he is my little boy.

Good God, this is my life!! My little boy turned two in October and he's actually throwing a tantrum in the living room right now over something big brother did. He's not talking yet, but last night I got my very first clear, concise "NO!" out of him. Thanks for this one.
