What Doesn't Work
First? At your place? I never thought that would happen.I thought you knew? The twos can start anywhere from 14 months-32 months. I promise. It does get better.
The 2's? They're a bit rough. But around 3 (or 12) it gets easier. Much easier! :)Frani
You'll be fine my friend...you'll be fine!
Just hang on, know it's short-lived and laugh. I sure do miss that stage now. I miss their cute little phrases and sayings. I really miss the binkies in their precious mouths.
Eeeeeeeek! I'm scared of the 2's! I'm a ways away from them, but I'm still skeeeerd! lol~melody~
Meh, the 2's are nothing. It's the 3's that are truly terrible.

omg...my son has flushed more nuks down the toilet! hasn't done blankies, but...power rangers!i was just thinking about how it's friday again...time for haiku's! and...here you are, with your haiku, already!loved it!xo
No worries, take it one day at a time, and you should be fine! :)
You might want to stock up on the hard liquor now. ;)Seriously though the mood swings of a 5-year-old girl are pretty wild, too!
My little guy went through the toilet fascination phase. Everything he touched found it's way to the toilet. He did eventually grow out of it. And for me? 3's have been way worse than 2's.
My girls both started the "terrible two's" by 18 months.Joelle got worse in her 3's...Malia is still full force in her 2's....Ah, the joys of parenting!!Have FUN!
I'm with Anglophile, the term 'terrible twos' is deceptive. It starts way before two and ends way after it. Way to find the blogging fodder silver lining though!! Your Haikus are always fantabulous!
We're only FOUR months from the terrible twos and I am definitely scared. Be brave, Mama Geek. Be brave.
Maybe he'll get it all out of his system early - that wouldn't be such a bad thing. On the other hand ...? See you. Kellan
I stumbled my way here from Nap Warden's blog. Had to delurk so that I could applaud you for your haikus. :)
Oh yeah...I remember those...happens before two..sometimes WAY before! Mine's 21 now and I still remember some of those days!! It'll pass, my friend.
eek!dare I say it... but 3 was worse.
Oh yes, be scared!! Heidi :)
oh yes they can start early... our oldest started his terrible 2s when he was 17 months and it's getting worse now (he's 2yrs 6 months)... I'm hoping this is the peak of it but we shall see! its kinda funny to though seeing them have their lil strops all the time ;)hey I've gotta find the funny side to it or I'd cry!
My recollection of the terrible twos is that they last from about 14 months until 3 or 3 1/2. It does eventually get better... You can handle it; we don't call you MamaGeek for anything. (Whenever you're feeling stressed, think of the robes at my house for a laugh!)
Tee hee. I hear they sell toilet locks nowadays. He sounds like hours of fun.
Oh God, what awaits me. I don't wanna, I don't wanna... But, I'm gonna have to. Hang in there, I'll be joining you soon!HAPPY HAIKU FRIDAY!
Be afraid, be very afraid.Terrible 2 are bad, I even got to experience terrible 3's.Good luck.And have a great weekend !!!
Yeah, toilets are great fun. The terrible 2's are a breeze compared to 3. Then it gets easier (at least I hope it does with my middle child). You will look back and laugh...right???
Monkey has discovered the toilet too, however he only wants to put his hands in there (ew).I feel your pain, want to have a sympathy party?Love the shirt!! We need that!!!!Great haiku honey!
Um...yes? Be afraid? Be very afraid. ;)
He flushed his nuk and blanket? Oh my! I hope you know a good plumber. I found the terrible twos are kind of a myth, but the threes made up for it. Good luck! :)
Uh-oh! Hailey knows about the toilet but hasn't figured out how to open it yet. So, as long as we remember to close it and the bathroom door- we're okay.... for now!Livin' With Me
I have a theory that the cuter they are, the more trouble they get into. The cute protects them from getting eaten. So, take a good look at him. If he looks like he would be tastey with some ketchup, then you're safe. If there's no way you could take a nibble, invest in a case of hard liquor and lock yourself in the closet.
Should you be scared...yes!
I've found that the twos last from about 12 months to 4 years (or so). You get used to it. Except when you want to go hide in the closet.
I agree with the cuteness...it does save them from a lot.And it does get better. Until it gets worse. :)
Yes, be worried, be very, very worried! LOL!!! My 6 year old loves ot play in the bathroom sink with his elephants. I constantly have water all over the floor. I should be glad he's never had a fascination with the toilet, but still...
Twos? That was a cinch with my son. Three was the worst year of my motherhood career (so far!) I think girls are bad at two though...or so I hear. My daughter is challenging me a lot more at this age :)
Um yes. You should be verrrrrry afraid.Good luck in the next few years!
I'm with Amy - 3 was the DOOZIE! And Bones was a pretty mild kid, but 3 pushed me. Maybe you'll get it out of the way at 2 though ;)
Yes, it is a faze...be scared when he comes out with a cup of tea and INSISTS you drink it!
Meh, two ain't so bad. The third time around. ;)The first time, the metamorphosis totally kicked my butt.
Just remember, flushing is a Good Thing ;) If you breeze through year 2, don't get all smug about it like I did. You'll get your comeuppance in year 3.
Aw, actually to tell you the truth, I loved the twos. It was the threes that drove me utterly nuts. The fours can be kinda hard too, come to think of it. Oh... um, yes, ok be scared! :)Kidding!!!
Combine a terrible two toddler with a preschooler who frequently forgets to flush and you get a nasty combination. At least it was just the hands and shirt that got dirty- no need to call the plumber. Yet. (fingers crossed). Terrible twos last from 1.5-3.5. See, I think it's just terrible twos because it lasts two years.
I found the 2's to be mild with my boy and charged up with my girl. And now, my boy is 4 and giving me grief. Nothing flushed down the toilet..yet, other than large, extra wads of toilet paper. I wish you good luck with the 2's. You'll be fine. *wink* *wink* Hey, always blog fodder!
Mine is just barely 13 m and he didn't flush but he did deposit my cell phone into the toilet, with in like 3 mins of me talking on it too. Between him and the 3 year old I am not sure we will all make it :) Good Luck, I feel ya.PS I love your blog
Oh, I think the twos start way before two and last until about five. The thrill of the flush dies quickly, though.
Thankfully Kaci never went through the toilet thing. Here's hoping Evan will skip it as well. Although I must say, Miss Sassypant's 3rd year has been much more trying than her 2nd.
oooh - good luck! I'm actually glad now that our toilet is so cheap and uncooperative that the little critter hasn't been able to flush it yet. not for lack of trying though...
It's a phase. A LONG phase.My two year old HUGGED the toilet at Safeway today.How do you sanitize a whole two year old at Safeway?
I always wondered why they call it the terrible 2s when it happens long before 2 years old. Oh Snap! What I have to look forward too with Lil One! Fun, fun, fun! :)
Be very afraid. They last much longer than you think.
Just the start. :-) I'm right in the middle of this now.
Guess we'll have to great up for that--yikes!By the way, your dog is just beautiful. We had a golden growing up and I think they're the best!
