I am tired of being the mother to a 2 year old. I am tired of hearing "NO!" all the time, screamed at the cat, yelled at her brother, and most of shouted at me. Even if she is alone in a room, she is yelling "NO!" at something. "NO!" to having her butt changed. "NO!" to the alternative....pooping on the potty like a big girl. "NO!" to eating, "NO!" to getting down from her chair.
Her second favorite word? "Mine!" Everything belongs to this child. The toys, the blankets, the couch, the floor. The tupperware in the cupboard. The handle to the fridge. A discarded banana peel.
She is getting good at combining her favorite words. "No, MINE!" echoes through the house quite frequently. Well, I got news for her. A lot of this stuff is actually MINE. And NO, I do not feel like sharing today. Stick that in your poopy diaper and sit on it for awhile.
