Don't mean to be a downer....as a mom to twin boys that are almost 4 - I think the "trying three's" are much worse than those "terrible two's"!!! ;) I can tell you what helped us alot during the beginning of this time was taking a 'love and logic for toddlers' class - it really helped us to discipline more consistently and using their ideas you really end up disciplining without being so 'angry and frustrated' with your kids.....I'm sure you know what I'm talking about! There also is a book out if you can't find a class, but the class is great because you get to meet other moms and ask the instructor your questions and actually get answers and tips to try! Don't forget to breath and count to 10 - that helps too! lol I personally think having multiples is God's way of teaching us patience and a whole lot more! ha ha Best of luck!!!
