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!
