What happened?

I have a 20 month old DD who is absolutely wonderful. For the most part.
She has always had a schedule she did very well with, eats healthy, gets out everyday, learns very easily, is very independent, smart, and she has always been a very well behaved child.
So what the hell happened? I swear, 2 days ago, the switch was flipped, and she is now in her terrible 2's. She won't go to sleep when she usually does, has begun throwing major fits, and is just being rebellious.
So i knew this would happen, every kid goes into the terrible twos, but the past few days all i can think is
"WTF just happened to my kid?"
This was just more of a humorous vent than anything...
So tell me, when did your kid hit the terrible twos...and did it start gradually, or like mine, overnight it seems?

And so it begins.. Haha

  • I'll check out her teeth tomorrow, but she has never been this bad with anything, not teeth, growing, or anything...
    I'm thinking about just getting her checked out next week, just to be sure. But im pretty sure she just hit that stage...
    So im hoping that it leaves in a year as suddenly as it came! Hahaha
    All I can do is laugh about it.

  • And now it is all about daddy. He works and i stay home. But she has never been this crazy. She cried Friday for an hour and a half, inconsolably for him before he got home.
    And when she wakes up at night, she cries for him.
    Not that im complaining about the night time stuff lol
    It just happened so suddenly.

  • It sounds like a growth spurt both a mental and physical one my DD will hit one then be a pain until it settles again just be patient and consistent and the daddy thing soooooo normal
