Terribly Terrific

I would like to discover who coined the phrase "terrible twos."

Preferably before they did so.

That way I could either stop them from doing it, or give them a good, swift kick in the shin.

I just don't understand what is so terrible about two. Are there temper tantrums? Sure. Are there communication problems? Sure. Are there crying fits, arguments, battles of will? Sure. Did all of that happen this morning before school? Yes. It did. But, and this is a big deal, all of those things are good things! It means that my child has his own opinions, feelings, thoughts, ideas.

I have to say, I love two! I love the too wet kisses. I love the giant bear hugs. I love coming home to a little boy who hurls himself into my arms. I love when he says, "Liam miss you Mommy." I love when we have a Liam and Mommy day. I love how he kisses his own boo boos and how he kisses my forehead when I have a headache. I love the way he is with babies- so gentle and enamored. Two is an amazing age and I wouldn't want to change a bit of it.
