Hey, so remember this post I wrote just recently, about how motherhood was going so well, Olive was being awesome, life was peachy, on and on?
Well I probably just jinxed myself right there, because as of today, we’re less than a month out from her 2nd birthday, and Olive has jumped headfirst into the tantrums of the famous Terrible Twos.
It’s not all bad, don’t get me wrong – but certain things have recently gotten a lot tougher to do; specifically transitioning Olive between activities. Which is something we do several times a day, right? I mean, not eating dinner because I fear a meltdown really isn’t a choice in this household.
I’m really trying to prepare myself for this next phase of being a Mom – having to stick to my discipline guns both at home at in public. Building a good foundation for good behavior means consistency, and I worry that if she causes enough drama (especially in public), I’ll be too embarrassed to correct her.
Veteran Moms – any tips to get me through the Terrible Twos? Any insight about what exactly makes this year so terrible? I’d love to hear from you.
Hope you’re having a good week so far,
