There seems to be an epidemic going around amongst toddlers. I'm not sure if it is the early terrible-twos, or what. A lot of the women in my mom's group for August '09 have said they are dealing with the same things. So that makes me feel better. I'm glad it isn't just Alice.

Serious, serious, serious attitude, folks! Tired? Throw yourself on the floor! Hungry? Throw yourself on the floor and beat your head! Want to do something you aren't supposed to do? Ram your head into a wall, fall down, beat your head, kick, scream, and cry until you either get pacified somehow or get too tired!

And don't you DARE touch someone during these fits. Otherwise you will be hit, kicked, pinched, or bit! I'd rather wrestle a python than try to deal with Alice during one of these fits! Really, I would!

I'm hoping this just means that the terrible twos won't be so terrible. After all, we should be able to communicate a little better and maybe reason with her, right?

I'm just glad I'm not alone in this. There are times I want to run out of the house and go drink heavily!

Elizabeth has an enormous bruise on her forehead from where she slammed her head into her crib during a tantrum.

Eek! Is it wrong that I still have tantrums like this? Just kidding. But I wish I could. Life would be so much easier!

I can't be certain, but I don't think running out and getting loaded is going to keep the little one from falling down kicking and screaming. It might, however, ensure that you'll fall down right alongside...perhaps vomit?
And hey, I'm so glad you came and left your name for the giveaway! There is no such thing as a little blog, only little people who never try blogging! Good luck!

Nope, you are not alone. Nope, not at all. *sigh*

PJ's tantrums consist of him throwing himself on the floor, and banging his head on the floor. Not much crying ensues.

We also go into a crying fit if we want something and we say no. All while trying to get him to learn Please. Le sigh.

Someone once informed me that the 1/2 ages were much worse than the age they were becoming. This has been true for all three of mine.
