With any burgeoning toddler, there's a heavy level of frustration for toddlers and parents alike. The word "No!" sometimes seems to be the only word in the vocabulary (and I'm not talking about the toddlers here). Their higher energy levels seem to draw directly from our own declining ones. Everything is a crisis. from falling off the rolling chair he's not supposed to be on to intentionally dropping a lovey out of the crib during naptime. It's easy to be a little chagrined.
Well, I don't have a hack for this. But my friend IndyWriter wrote so insightfully yesterday on life with her 2 year-old daughter that I just had to share her post.
