I have been through the terrible twos before; in fact this will be my third encounter with this dreaded phase of growing up!!! Simone was a very easy toddler she pretty much went about doing her thing and never really got herself into any “dangerous” situations, the same applies to Nicole who was the easiest of the three…. Nicole slept 7 hour stretches from the day she was born…. So that should give you some idea of what I mean when I say she was every parents dream baby.
With regards to Leah things are a bit different, Leah finds pleasure in all that is extreme. If I were to baby proof my house we would probably end up with empty padded rooms!!! We are constantly on “high alert”…if she is not screaming her lungs out about how everything is “MINE TOYS’ she would probably be climbing the furniture with the greatest of ease, making steps using teddy bears to create the height needed, sprinkling her apple juice all around the house, diving off the self made steps, spinning around and becoming so drunk that she walks into the furniture (which is so much fun for her and the rest for the girls and you cant help but giggle with them) and the best has to be stripping down to absolutely nothing and opening the curtains to wave at the people passing by in the nude!!!
There are many more “terrible two” stunts but I thought I would just highlight a few for now…. And I find myself terribly exhausted by all this action …so I ask myself am I getting to old for this??? And my mom says there is no time to get old because this phase should end in about 32 years time 🙂
