Terrible Twos

Wito’s 2nd birthday party is this Saturday, and I’m knee-deep in preparation. (You know, if “knee-deep” means watching Paula Deen and her sons make a mighty fine Banana Split Cake while filing my nails.)

Oh, and those Terrible Twos? They have officially made their appearance one week early.

Case in point #1:


What do you MEAN the carousel isn’t open yet? MY LIFE IS A HEAPING PILE OF DOG SHIT.

Case in point #2:


I’m not really fond of this drab wall color. Let me spruce it up a bit.

Send help.

    The drawing! Oh yes. Finn does this too. I have some pen on my couch thanks to the Two’s.

    I hope those crayons are those washable kinds!

    Mine didn’t color at MY house. Oh no… he chose to wait until he was at MY MOTHER’S house to color. With a black pen. On their WHITE couch. I think she still loves us, but I can’t be sure.

    My best friend’s little boy was perfect until the week he turned 2 and then he threw a tantrum every single day!

    He turned 14 today. It is starting again.

    Oh no! Wito!

    He totally looks like he’s faking the crying in the first pic. What a cutie!

    My sister drew all over the walls in MY bedroom with red lipstick when she was a kid.

    I’m still kind of mad at her about that.

    TWO kills e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e. I have a 2.5 and 1 year old but I swear their 6 year old sister with all those OPINIONS wears me out more.

    At least he didn’t draw on the walls with….uh, how to put this politely?….the contents of his diaper. My twin brother and sister did this when they were two. They also added some diaper cream into the mix. And because there were TWO of them, it was TWICE the….um…..art project.

    I’m pretty sure MY LIFE IS A HEAPING PILE OF DOG SHIT is a great tagline for Terrible Twos. It would also look mighty cute on a toddler t-shirt.

    This is the best birth control ever.

    Oh gosh. I have a much younger sister, and she went through the terrible twos from 2-4! Um, not to discourage you. When we moved into a new house and my parents bought me all white furniture, she painted it all with yellow finger paint and shredded my sheets with scissors! At 19 now, she’s gotten a tad bit better =)

    Cute kid….

    But more importantly….

    Do you watch Paula’s Party? Don’t you think she is inappropriately sexual with her guests? Especially for a 60 year old married lady?

    Oh wow, I just got distracted by the banana split cake which is good because I suppose I’ll be looking forward to this in 2.5 years!

    If you still have the presence of mind to photograph the terrible 2’s then you really haven’t hit the worst of it yet. Brace yourself…

    Ok. I’ll trade you the cats for ONE WEEK. They promise to clean themselves and require only a few feedings. I will take Wito out on the town for ice cream, pandas at the zoo, and silly street people watching. I *promise* he’ll be safe with me.

    Even at the beginning of his terrible twos he’s adorable. And a much better artist than I!

    I love how you take a pic in the midst of a tantrum. I usually start laughing (out of sight of course) becuase its just really so hilarious. Hang tight…I heard three is the new two. Good Lord.
