Terror of Tiny Town

It’s hard to believe that it took 10 years for us to be blessed with this handsome lil’ fella but it did and now he’s a three year old terror.  Can someone tell me who the heck made up the terrible two’s because they were wrong. It’s the terrible three’s.  Three–where they can do everything by themselves, start talking back, understand that ‘no’ makes smoke come out my nose & ears, and copy what everyone says.

“Mom, I need to crap”.  Ahhh, such an accomplishment to finally get a three year old to understand potty training but teaching #2 or the poop seems to be a daunting task.  So for now, ‘taking a crap’ will have to do.

And did I mention that throwing everything he can in the toilets is one of his favorite hobbies.  Lovely isn’t it?  Not to mention the constant dinosaur growling ALL.THE.TIME.

Despite his tiny terror ways, he melts my heart.  His frowning face, saying “You make me sad”, when I have to get on to him just turns me into fluff.  His 5 minute morning cuddles and the hands on hip poses make it all worth it.

    That second paragraph seriously made me laugh. I needed that this Monday morning. He is going to be such a heart-breaker.

    You are so right about the terrible threes. Just got out of it with one daughter and about to jump right with another daughter.

    The threes…ahhh…don’t remind me. My Kaydee turned two this summer and I’m not looking forward to the next year or so either.

    He sure is a cutie!

    I’ve always said that the person who coined the phrase terrible twos child didn’t live to be three. Threes are the worst until you get to puberty.

    I know what you mean. My youngest son turned three last September. We call it the Tyrannical Threes here since he runs around acting like a little tyrant most of the time! THANK GOD we got through potty training although he’s not quite as frank as your little guy. For Wild Man, everything is “I wet”. Took me a while to figure out he was talking about going to the bathroom. I kept looking for wet spots on him, spilled juice on the carpet, furniture…you get the idea!

    I know from experience with my older two, it doesn’t get any easier either! lol!!! But they are cuties and can’t imagine our lives without them!!!

    Potty training – There may have only been twelve days in as many years that I haven’t had to wipe someone’s butt. If getting my son to understand when to do #2 on the toilet included him saying crap I’d let him too.

    We neveer had a problem with toys ending up in the toilet here but my brothers did that so often my Dad should have been a plumber.
