    Terrible Two's: Shoot Me...Just Shoot Me

    Does it really stop at 3…on the dot? His birthday is coming in November..

    Where’s my kid? You know the adorable one? The one that made young couples look at each other and say “Hey look, having a kid could be kind of awesome”?

    For fooks sake, wattsa matter with you?!!

    If you followed him around, you’d say 2 times a minute “Don’t do that”, which of course has the opposite desired effect .

    50 goddamn tear sessions a day.

    Random crisis:
    I take him to the bathroom to pee. He washes his hands and I turn off the faucet.

    “Nooo I wanted to turn it oooooooofffffffffffff wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    [I]Deep breath[/I]

    WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    Ooh look a dead fly"

    …and stops crying

    And when he’s not being disruptive he’s just makes you want to blow your brains out.

    His biggest thing is turning your answers into questions

    Yesterday while in the garden:
    What are you doing?
    I’m diggin a hole
    You’re digging a hole?

    2 minutes later:
    Now what are you doing?
    Still digging a hole buddy
    You’re still digging a hole?

    2 minutes later:
    Where are you going? What are getting ?
    I’m getting a tool
    You’re getting a tool?


    But I still love him death. :steamin::mad::O;)

    you let yours out of its cage?

    the "why" questions are the best.

    Ha.. I always found that weird when co-workers here would say "I don't WANT to go home early dude... that's worse." Now I'm beginning to understand. :O

    Nope, it doesn't get any easier. Each kid is different and will go through different stages, but my sweet, smart, funny little 4.5 year old has said the following things to me in the past 3 days:

    - If you make me wear socks you aren't going to be my father anymore.
    - I hate you and will make you dead.
    - I'll never play with you ever again (upon being requested to brush his teeth)
    -You're mean to me. You never let me do anything (when I told him that he couldn't watch ALL of Monday Night Football).

    My patience is really wearing thin.....my wife, who is fairly impatient to begin with, is beside herself. And our poor little guy (who's 18 months), never seems to get any attention because of it. Our big one also is now keen on tackling the little one every time he sees him. That's also fun to deal with.

    He basically started acting up when his sister arrived. We've also been dealing with bellyflops onto her or smothering her face with a teddy bear.

    LMAO!!

    Dealing with the same thing with my 2 yo son. He's trying to assert his independence.

    Best way I've learned to deal with it is to let him do it. It's great and can actually work in your favor. For example, if you want to get him to do something...you don't have to tell him to, ask him to do it FOR you.


    The problem I have with my boy is he's like his father....always the contrarian. He'll argue with me about anything and everything.

    [QUOTE][B]Me:[/B] Dexter! You're a good boy!

    [B]Dexter:[/B] NO!! I'm not. I'm a bad boy.

    [B]Me:[/B] OK, fine. You're a bad boy then.

    [B]Dexter:[/B] NO!! I'm not! I'm a bad girl.

    [B]Me:[/B] Huh? Fine, dude...you're a bad girl.

    [B]Dexter:[/B] NO!! I'm not! I'm a good girl.

    [B]Me:[/B] No. You're just a jacka**.[/QUOTE]

    Or....last night

    [QUOTE][B]Me:[/B] Dex...it's time to go to bed.

    [B]Dexter:[/B] NO!! Time to play.

    [B]Me:[/B] No...it's dark outside buddy, that means it's time for bed.

    [B]Dexter:[/B] NO!! It's not dark. It's cloudy outside.

    [B]Me:[/B] Ok....that was pretty funny.

    [B]Dexter:[/B] NO!!! Not funny. Cloudy.[/QUOTE]

    LOL

    He does crack me up though.

    During the inevitable fight to go to bed, it's always a debate about how much light is getting into the room and how open the door can be.

    [B]Me: [/B]Look, Im turning off your light, but I'll turn the hall light on and leave the door half open. I'll be downstairs ,if you have a problem just call me.


    2 AM:
    [B]Him[/B]: DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD

    [B]Me[/B]: sigh - what?

    [B]Him[/B]: I have a problem :D

    They start to be fun at age 3. But because he's French, it may be 3 1/2.

    I disagree. That might impede his early development.
