Terrible Twos

Yowzers. That did not take long at all. Terrible twos only 6 days after Ms. A's birthday. Apparently so.

And, call me a bad mom, but I couldn't help but snap a few photos of her "in action" today. Oh, it was bad. I guess I just want to make sure I photograph the good, the bad, and the ugly. Mission accomplished.

Can you tell how mad her face is? Her blood shot eyes from screaming? How about the tomato colored face? I even think her scalp was turning red. Why the tantrum (or one of them today) - because it was time to go inside and get ready for lunch and naptime. The Iron Chef and I purchased a new swing for her and we had been outside ALL MORNING LONG. Apparently she didn't think it was long enough.

Let's hope this phase is short and sweet. :)

Genius to take pics of her during her meltdown - you'll have a good laugh over them some day (and those are some pretty darn good pics lady!!)

Isn't it nice to know that EVERY 2 year old goes through this? I find knowing that brings a little comfort in those moments. =)

I'm sorry... the second to last one is almost frame-able. Great job! Ha!

I SOOO feel for you. I'm suffering worse than Darien through the 2s, though you wouldn't know it by the tantrums. You'd think these poor kids were being tortured!
