Kid for sale, give me your best offer

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.

Are you willing to trade for a while? I have a 17 tear old here who is going to be the death of me someday. I get the 17 year old version of NO!MINE! from her.

Again and again, I will shout it loud, I am so glad my daughter is 37, my grandson is 9. I have no advice, well, wine will help.

I have a 3 yr old and can't say it is much better than the 2 yr old NO MINE stage. We also add the drama queen into it to get it really crazy!

I say lock yourself in your bathroom with my 2 favorite men....Ben & Jerry...and find your Zen again.

Dang, I wish someone would offer to change my butt. I'd yell, YES PLEASE! To Beyonce's or Britney Spears' would be nice! :)
