The Tossing Terrible Twos!!!

Just when I thought things were starting to get easier!
It’s official Summer is going through the terrible 2’s and core blimey she’s not being discreet about it. This little madam throws down a tantrum about anything and everything, any place any time, anywhere! You can’t even say boo to Summer at the moment because trust me it’s not worth the headache.

Every morning Summer stands on her pink IKEA table poking her head out of the door shouting ‘Mummy, Mummy, Mummy’ Hearing your offspring say Mummy for the first time is always heart warming and when they need you calling out ‘Mummy’ it’s lovely to feel needed and wanted but at 6am every morning, the novelty is starting to wear off…fast!

Summer isn’t even 2 (Not till 14th May) and she literally owns me already! If I ask her to pick her toys up I either get told ‘no’ or she will pick things up and throw them like it’s a game, Grrr! Trying to speak on the phone with Summer in the same room is a no go. Today I couldn’t hear myself think let alone hear what the person was saying on the other end of the phone. Using your phone…’your’ being the prime word here is also a risk as Summer will instantly attempt to take control heading for the Peppa Pig app!

Summer refuses point blank to get in the buggy, she wants to walk everywhere and whilst I’m very proud of my little miss independent everything now seems to take double the time. Summer wants to look at what she wants and everything is a game. I think it was much easier when I could throw her (not literally) in the buggy and get on with my busy ‘to do list’

I find myself buying a lot of crap these days just to keep Summer quiet. I remember thinking when I was pregnant with Riley that I would always be in control and I wouldn’t ‘give in’ I would be the boss. Now I think whatever anything for a quiet life! Please tell me I’m not alone here?! :/

The constant whining and whinging over nothing seriously grindes my gears. Either scream the house down because you have something to cry about or SHUT THE FU*K up…just saying! (hands over eyes) Every day seems to be a constant headache and appears to be the same mundane routine. Early mornings, constant moaning throughout the day about nothing and refusal to go to bed.

God give me strength, how long do the ‘terrible twos’ last? Please tell me this isn’t going to continue until Summer turns 3?! 🙁

Advice, tips, hints, support, experiences – please feel free to share so I know I’m not alone here…
