Baby Boy turned 2 on Sunday (we waited until Monday - yesterday - to celebrate...between just getting home from CA, my doing sharing time and Hubby's meetings that day, it just seemed to make sense). Yes...my baby is 2.
We never really had the "terrible twos" with Big Sis. For her it was the "torturous threes" that really made for one not-so-fun year of growing and learning. I have a sneaking suspicion that this won't be the case for Baby Boy - I'm thinking we're headed for a year of "terrible".
How do I know this already? Well...today Baby Boy woke up screaming and he just kept on screaming until it was nap time. Oh yeah, he did take a few breaks to eat a snack and lunch. I'm sure a major portion of his screaminess today comes from the fact that we just had a crazy schedule breaking week in a place were there is no lack of sensory overload potential and then our church meetings go from 1:30 to 4:30 (meaning...no nap) and then we celebrated his birthday yesterday...I guess 10 days of craziness is bound to catch up with a little 2 year old at some point.
Still it leaves me with the question...what's the deal with the terrible twos? Are boys more prone to the terrible two stage (hopefully preventing the torturous three stage)? Anybody got a good terrible twos story to share?
