Not Feelin' The Love Right Now

Nate (in car): Nate wants more juice.
Me: When we get inside in a minute, we're going to have lunch. Would you like milk?
Nate: Nate wants juice!
Me: Well, you can pick - juice or milk?
Nate: Juice!

Now inside, I put his juice and lunch on the table. He takes a sip of the juice then looks at me in horror.
Nate (crying): This not milk!!
Me: You said you wanted juice.
Nate (still crying): Mommy take it away!!
Me: Okay, okay, I'll go get milk.

I think this is how kings and queens treated servants back in medieval times. Or Bettie Davis. I think she probably yelled at people. My life has become Mommy Dearest in reverse....

Hello. My name is Nikki and I'm the parent of a toddler. Is there a support group out there???

During the "twos" you might just find yourself looking forward to going to work on those 2 days a week! It's called "a break". Hang in there, darling daughter. He'll be in the wonderful "threes" before you know it and you'll soon forget the "twos"! Of course, then there's the frustrating "fours" - but, hey, why spoil your day! Love you. Nate's Gramma
