The Gallery: The Longest Day




At the moment every day seems like the longest day. We are well and truly stuck in the throws of the terrible twos. I know it's just a phase. I have a hazy memory about how awful the other two were. However, on a day to day basis I feel as if I'm stuck in a Groundhog Day filled with stomping and screaming. And that's just me! 



The reason we have so many tantrums at the moment is shown in this picture. Little man has a desire to run everywhere. Walking is clearly not as much fun. Most of the time this is fine. However, combine this with 3.15 school pick up, a need to cross roads and an absolute meltdown occurs. I am the meanest, most evil of Mummies, as I dare to insist that he must hold my hand to cross the road. The only good thing is that my day is longer than little man's and come 7 o'clock his day is over. Ready for an early wake up call and more tantrums tomorrow.

This looks like what we are going through right now with our 2 year old Olivia too. I cannot remember the same with my older daughter, but hoping this be be over soon.

Yes - I remember days like these, and hang onto the thought that in about 10 years time I won't be able to move my 3girls anywhere!!

Gosh I don't miss the terrible twos but I found the threes worse. They know what they want don't they? Until they don't LOL! I hope it passes quickly!

We skipped the terrible twos, the frightful threes made up for it though!!! :)

Some would say he is showing confidence and independence! :-) Annoyingly optimistic people!

Louise Fairweather said...

Oh man, I do NOT envy you this! Exhausting. You can never ever truly relax as they could take flight at any moment.
It is a phase and it will pass; you've just got to hope the next phase is slightly less tiring!

It is so scary - he ran into a car park the other morning as I kissed big man goodbye at the school gate. Yes I have come to realise that kids go through a lot of phases x
