  • it's the way it is with son is not even 2 just yet and is a little monster more often than not...Just hang in there, count to ten make sure you get some deep breaths...don't react with anger, be as calm but stern as possible. GL Mama!

  • I am in the same boat..right now I am listening as my husband tries to put my son to bed. He is screaming (waking up his little sister), opening the door, running down the hall, hitting, throwing a fit...arg!

  • I have two kids who are 15 months apart and they are both going to their terrible twos and threes. It's okay to feel like this and you shouldn't feel guilty about it. We love our kids unconditionally but God knows we certainly don't like them from time to time.
