the terrible twos are hitting early!


Alysse has two months before she "offically" hits two but the signs of a two year old are all around us! I have a really hard time not saying "but ashlyn never did that"! I am very quickly coming to the conclusion that ashlyn was an angel child...and alysse...well...not so much. Now before I am cast into the world of horrible mother's (it will not be the first time!) for saying my child is a spawn of the devil...Here are some pictures of her latest talent. It all started the other day, ashlyn was going to a birthday party and i was helping her wrap the present...when i realized it was WAY to quite for alysse to be doing anything good. I walked into the hall way because the door was open and ashlyn went towards my bedroom. Next thing i knew...i hear "MOM HURRY HURRY COME HERE QUICK!!!" I go running (as fast as my prego goodness could carry me) into the bathroom to find a toilet filled with treasures. It seems that while ashlyn and i were busy with the present alysse had collectively gone to each room and found fun things to fill the toilet with. A book, some little people figures, a shirt, a lip gloss, a toothpaste box...etc. I was like 'child what am I going to do with you?'...and then I was relieved that she has not YET leanred how to flush it because that would have been really bad! Since then I bought toilet locks. Only to go into the bathroom the other morning and find she had totallly figured out how to get them open...and had again filled the toilet with clothes (to the rim) from the laundry basket. This time... not so funny...and the next time, even less. I dont know what to do. She also has been throwing major fits if she doesnt get what she wants. and she now completely refuses to stay in the cart while i try to grocery shop. And can wiggle her way out of the restraint buckle!! So then she stands up and throws herself forward until i let her down. She then immediatly runs in the opposite direction!!! I am totally going to lose it. and I am pregnant!!! HELP! I am just hoping that maybe since it started early it will end early??? Here's to hoping!

oh, I feel for you. My almost two year old is learning the "good" stuff from her older sister. She is definately getting the attitude. I am already waddling, so I know the feeling!!

Oh, Candace! I am so sorry! Really, what is it with the toilet? I know you know all my stories. Thankfully, not that much has gone in them yet, but the other morning he was "washing" his hand in the water. And to think people think we are bad parent for not catching them quickly enough...they are sooooo dang fast! I hope it gets better :)

Oh, what a pistol! Good luck with her. She sounds like a fun one! And I feel for you being pregnant through all this, that always makes everything ten times harder!

WOW...is it bad that I laughed at this post. I can hear your voice while I read and I can TOTALLY relate! Mailee's a little firey toxic midget some days but i think that's what I love about her. It's times like that (clothes in the toilet for example) that i have to keep telling myself that they need firey personalies like this to live in the world they will grow up in. ...it helps for about five minutes :)

I seriously wish our little ones could play...they'd hav a ball!

Thank Alysse for giving me a good laugh! I shouldn't say it, but we've seem to avert the terrible twos at our house so far. I guess each kid really does come with his/her own personality. Good think she's so stinkin cute! Good Luck - maybe you could try one of those leash things?...

P.S. Check out my contest. I could be wrong, but I think you'd like my new peekaboos. Also...I'm having lots of fun working on your present! :)

Oh, my dear! I am so sorry! Some of these phases can be absolutely exhausting! I will pray that it will end early since it started early, just like you said! Hang in there!

Hi my name is Kim, I'm Brandon's wife and we're going to be coming out there for residency. So how bad is it really? You have a very cute family and that picture is very funny. We have 2 boys and they are very different. Hope to meet you soon.

I have to comment again because this is so close to my heart being the mother of Spencer terrible two Pederson. I totally feel your pain. He is for sure my hardest two year old. I think that my other kids could not get lids off or something, but there were not as many spills around before. Anyway we will survive!!!
