Terrible TWOSdays | The arguments I lost this month with my toddler.

If you follow my personal IG (@sarahjaneshorthose) then you are already well aware that my house is full of two little ladies with some BIG personalities. Both of my littles (“B”, age 5 and “O” age 2) made us THINK we’d outsmarted, outparented or just outran the ‘terrible twos’ by basically not having them until almost three. Well, three is JUST around the corner for O and terrible has arrived.

So to cope with humor and commiserate with other mommas (those in the toddler trenches with me, those wiser ones who’ve already come out the other side and those yet to enter the battlefield) here comes a little mini-series to recap the month of wins and losses and draws with my itty bitty kiddos this month.

Up first… ‘she’s the boss’ – this is completely unsolicited she just came over to remind me that I am not, in fact, in charge. #noted

Both my most/least favorite thing about this kiddo is her complete confidence. She’ll tell you ‘NO’ without an ounce of ire, doubt, fear, concern … just straight up “Nah” dude with celebrity level confidence. I’m both proud of her belief in herself and wishful for a little less fight in the day to day. 

A toddler’s best survival technique has to be their epic cuteness (the dimples are just downright unfair) and the snuggles. I’m powerless to the snuggles. My favorite toddler redemption moment of the month is when I threw out my back after carrying her in a backpack all day and she climbed up to fix me with cuddles that evening. <3
