  • Teehee.  I once had a quote in my siggy: "whoever said the twos were terrible never had a three year old."


    My oldest was a monster when she turned 3.  Sadly she never grew out of it.  She's 10 and throws tantrums worse than any toddler I've known.  Add into it pre-teen hormones and, ugh, it's a never ending roller coaster around here.

  • my daughter started acting like that the DAY she turned 4 i called it the belated terrible 2's because god help me she's sassy and mean and has even cursed....i am starting to believe what my mom used to say to me..."Remember...whatever you're doing to me, your kids will do to you twice as worse"
