Payback is a Mother...

I really wish someone would have warned me how bad the terrible-two really were. I know that they call it the terrible-twos for a reason but I had no idea it would be this bad. I thought my daughter started her terrible-two phase when she turn 1 1/2 but I was sooooo wrong. That was just a preface of what was to come.

My sweet and loving angel has turned into a little hellion. I spend the entire day telling Kyla not to touch this, don't climb on that, close the door, put that down. It is so tiring. I don't even know why I continue to waste my breath because she doesn't listen. Nothing seems to work. I thought time out was going to work and it did for the first two weeks but that was short-lived. Popping her is a waste of time because she will just look at you and continue about her business. UGH....it is so frustrating. I try to remind myself that the is just exploring her independence.

They say that when you have kids that they act 3X worse than you were as a child. Well, I just want to say "Sorry Mom, please remove the curse". I know that I was kind of mischievous when I was a child but this is ridiculous. I guess this is my payback for all the headaches and grey hairs that I caused my parents. I was hoping things would balance out since my husband was good as a child....no such luck.

Now don't get me wrong. I absolutely love my daughter but there are days when I look forward to going to work to get a break. I just don't understand how she can be so cute and sweet one moment and totally defiant the next. Hats off to all the stay-at-home moms who have made it through the terrible-twos phase. I am open to any and all suggestions and advice that any of you may have to offer. She has me seriously rethinking having another child. Someone....please tell me it get better.
