April 20, 2006



I'm loving most of the two's as well, even though we still have a couple months to go before we are officially there. IMO the good definitely outweighs the bad.


Considering that I have 4 kids (teenagers now), there were many favorite moments, but I think my most favorite time was when my daughter, Laura was two and she walked around all day imitating everything I did. She wanted to be just like Mommy, even down to having her own ball of yarn and crochet hook so she could make something for her dolly. It was the sweetest thing ever.


When my son was 2, he surprised me one day by just walkin ginto the room to come to me and hug me and say "I love you, mommy." There can't possibly be a bigger reward than that.

I will also cherish the advice I read in "THe Happiest Toddler on the Block," which advises echoing your toddlers words, er, screams, repeatedly and emphatically to get them to stop a tantrum. Worked practically every time.

I am in the throes of the twos with Sean and while it does present it's challenges as he tries to find the boundaries and become independent yet not at the same time, the rewards more than make up for it. It is a delicious golden time and I want to soak it all in like a sponge because it is flying past me too quickly.

I wasn't too thrilled with the terrible twos - but your post reminds me that all of those things allowed for the threes to be better - and so far, three has been my favorite year yet!


My daughter will turn two in August, and I have mixed feelings about it. Part of it is that I'm pretty sure she will be my one and only, and it's just going so fast! I'm also nervous, because she is throwing some pretty interesting tantrums right now. But, thank you for your post; it made me feel better about the things to come.


Brenda, it's always an adventure!


Michelle, I can't stop laughing at your post - #1 and #4 are my faves. My son will be turning 2 in July and I'm looking forward to it too!
