Thank you! I didn't know they picked up on it until I saw your comment.


Hi, thank you for sharing this great info. Was just browsing through the net in my office and happened upon your blog. It is really very well written and quit comprehensive in explaining with a very simple language.


the HAND TOWEL? seriously?!?!!?!?!?!??!

If it is something that needs to be cleaned up or brought to the trash deny it is yours, even if it has your name on it.

Hi great blog I really enjoy reading this blog
I almost woke the tweens in the next room laughing.
You nailed this one!


do you have any rules for 2 year old transgenders

Perfect post!
Yesterday I had Lillianna clean up her room because it was a disaster. We had errands to run so by the time I got around to checking her workmanship,it was 8pm. I nearly fell over her toys!
I said,"I thought you said this room was clean!" She looked at me innocently and said,"Well.....it looks clean to ME!"

Here is my 8 year old's idea of a clean room:
2 Build-A-Bear dogs thrown on the floor.
15 books scattered like confetti all over the room.
Bits of paper ground into the rug.
One huge chalk board in the middle of the room so that it's very easy to trip on.
5 pieces of colored chalk tossed ever so casually by the chalk board so that you can grind the chalk into the rug on the way to tripping on the chalk board!

Ya.....her room was clean! Whatever!


You live in my house!!!!! I laughed til I cried.


It's been a LONG time since I spewed all over my keyboard. This is so true, so perfectly seen and told - through a mother's learning's.

The Beast Mom

I guess it would be all OUR mothers who deserve to laugh when reading something like this. It's easy to understand how exasperated they were with US at this age and how that seemed so unreasonable at the time. :)Motherhood has made me understand so much of more of my own mother's behaviors and decisions!

Yes! I knew someone, somewhere would break the code! This is EXACTLY what goes on in my house-DAILY!

Don't forget these rules too:
1. As soon as you get on the phone they will either a. desparately need to use it b. desparately need you or c. fight loudly with their siblings
2. Their personal care products will begin to multiply if they are female.
3. What's theirs is theirs and what's yours is theirs. What's theirs is not yours...yes that means YOU!
4.They cannot see anything that is on the floor - period. It just doesn't exist, especially if it is dirty laundry, or crumbs from their nonstop snacking.
and last but not least:
5.Mom - "leave me alone" doesn't mean, "leave me alone" it means "leave me alone right now, until I need something like a ride to my friends, help with my paper, or money for the movies!"

LOL- it is sooo much like dealing with a two year old, they even stomp feet and slam doors again!


I have an only and SHE knows these rules. Even the ones that say "Blame someone else". I now know that "someone" does not have to be human, but can be a CAT, to open a bottle of childproof capped vitamins, spill them, and not clean them up.


All aforementioned rules apply.

Kids?! Several of these apply to my *husband*!

My three daughters are close in age: 7, 5.5 and 2.5, so I have come to the realization that the 'Terrible Twos' are simply foreshadowing what I will have to endure during the 'Terrible Teens'. I need to ask: "Do the Terrible Twos ever end?" Since my five year old is still going through them.

I was laughing out loud. Great, great post! Now I'll tell you that I'm never, never, never going to let my kids get to the tween years (we'll skip 'em)....now *you're* laughing out loud :)


I'm just now getting there with my 10 year old. Both the 10 yo and the 7 yo have down the "I didn't do it" part. But they have no one that can't talk to blame anything on. Now they both get in trouble if I can't determine the culprit. Deny the guilt, share the blame.


Oh my gosh! You hit the nail on the head with that one. I have an 11 year old daughter and a 9 year old son as well as a 5 1/2 month daughter. My older 2 do every one of these things, including my daughter wearing her brother's clothes. She's a bit of a tomboy. It won't be long before they start blaming things on the baby. Thanks for the laugh.


oh my - that is so good. My 3 are 6, 4 and 20 mo - and that's our life - so now I know it just won't change - it'll get louder and bigger. Thanks a lot;)
