Terrible Twos



I was lucky to skip Stretch Marks, luckily I skipped most of Morning Sickness, I also skipped the Heartburn. But not lucky enough to skip the Terrible Twos. They have hit us with full force. Temper Tantrums at the drop of a hat. You look at him wrong and there he goes. Complete with rolling on the floor and banging his hands and feet. Try to get him wear his Jacket or Shoes when he doesn't want to. This is especially fun if you're getting late for work. Meal times are even more fun now. He learned saying 'No' a long time ago and doesn't say 'Yes' still. Does that tell you something? LOL!

Last night we stopped by the mall to pick up something. He wanted to ride the escalator. DH happily obliged. When they reached downstairs Mehul spotted the train. It's a ride-on train that just circles around the lobby and in one wing of the mall. Well, the rides are only on the weekends, but who could explain him that? Tantrum ensued right there in the lobby. Took the escalator to come up and then again rolled on the floor for a bit. I told DH to just keep walking and not look at him. That technique usually works. Thankfully, the Carousel in the Food Court was working and he got to ride that. He wanted another go but we said Bye Bye to the nice lady at the counter and she closed the gate. We promised to come back. Crisis averted.

But all the trouble was worth seeing DH riding the Carousel with him. I should have posted the Father and Son layout *in this entry*. DH is the guy who went to Disney and didn't ride a lot of Roller Coasters because they can make him sick. And there he was, with his son on the Carousel.

I can't go without sharing this latest stunt of Mehul. Last night, he woke up around 2AM. He was sleeping on our bed in-between us (we really should bring the crib back). Anyhow, DH said he had fallen back asleep. I wanted to make sure that he was. I leaned towards him to see if his eyes were closed. And I heard M say "Mamma, lie down" OMG. It was hilarious. DH and I couldn't sleep for hours after this.

No. You can't have either of my guys :-)

Your little one sounds like a handful, but he'll grow quickly.
