Dearest toddler of mine,
You are fun. We play cars & have snacks & you talk to me and give me kisses. This stage is fun....most of the time....
It's not fun when you go limp noodle on me and yell, usually only when we're in public. Or when you look me right in the eye after I've told you something (usually no touching the dogs water or no throwing food) and go 'no mama' and do it anyway.
I realize these are normal and the battles and sass will get bigger from here, but maybe we can focus on the hugs & kisses instead of defying my every request.
In totally unrelated news I think I'm going to start buying wine by the box.
