To Be Two

I will scream if you cut my apple in pieces. And don't even try to hand me a banana that you've accidently broken.

I will scream. As loud as I can. Until even my ears ring a little.
I will laugh soon after, because I'm so stinking cute.

I'll tell you I've pooped. But I won't want you to help me clean up. Or go on the toilet.

I will want what I want, when I want it, and then some.

I don't like stripes. Only shirts with basketballs, baseballs, soccer balls, or footballs. Thank you very much.
Unless I want stripes.

I'll throw toys. Right at my sister's head. If I'm so inclined.
Then I'll be mad at YOU for the time out.

I will drink juice.
No water!
No milk!
Unless I want water or milk. Right now!

I am two.

I will also say things like, "I love woo."

And sing my ABC's in the cutest twang you've ever heard.

I'll tell you when things are too girly. Because I'm ALL boy.

I'll melt your heart into puddles with just a sideways glance.

I'll play with my trains, my cars, and run around outside.
But will also beg my sister to play barbies and draw.

I am creative and beautiful and smart.

I am two.

Ah. Two. When fickleness is charming. And very cute.

Just when I thought I couldn't shed another tear.... I did.

I miss my little man being two. It was awful. But it was wonderful.

Wish I could have put it into the words you did here. Kudos.

The picture..... PRICELESS.

At first I thought you were channeling my two year old . . .
And what a great picture!

Just wait until he's four! For my kids that was two at twice the size!!!

Very funny post and very cute pic.

That picture says it all, doesn't it?

Great post.

Oh OM. I miss my family. I hate these blogs, but I could not live without them. Maybe I would be better off just missing it rather than knowing what I am missing *sniff*.... but most likely that would have stopped me from taking on my little adventure down here.

Thanks for the heartwarming update.

Two is SO MUCH FUN. Seriously.

Jenifer said...

We still get the folded arms here! That photo is priceless.

Jen said...

Ah, yes that about sums up two. And three. And the early parts of four aren't too far off around here...

Adorable picture, too!

I'll share my line from Toddler Group. "Do you want to cry?" I hold out one hand. "Do you want to play/sing/run/etc?" I hold out the other. If the child doesn't say they want to play I lift the hand I put out when I said play/etc and I say, "I want to play/sing/run/ etc" and I start doing it. They stop crying/ pouting/whatever and start doing what ever I do. I LOVE Toddlers!

Oooh--I love the picture! And two sounds a lot like four to me, though.

kristi said...

LOL......that face says it all!

Michelle said...

Sounds like he keeps you on your toes! :) Love that picture too - such attitude in the expression! LOL

Mimi said...

Oh yeesh, it's like you're living my life. The screams, oh dear lord, the SCREAMS. And also, the cuteness.

The toddler paradox.

(And what is it about 'broken' bananas? We handle fruit verrrrry gingerly around here, I can tell you.)
