Terrible and terrific!
Whomever labelled it the terrible twos was a year ahead of themselves. At least with our kids so far. When they are three they can talk and are really trying to express their own will... which has lead to some good temper tantrums in our house. And a lot of exerting their own will which is a real pain when I am trying to exert my will! That being said, it is also one of my favorite stages because they say the cutest things!
This morning, for example, Tristan was looking at his baby album. On the page of my belly pictures he says, why did you take a picture of your belly with no head?
Because I wanted a picture of my Tristan, when you were a tiny baby in my belly, I say.
You look full enough, Mom. Why did you eat me?
I am still laughing... three year olds are adorable!
