MOMMY TUESDAY: TERRIBLE THREES?

Happy Tuesday!

Oh my word…Okay so why hasn’t anyone told me about terrible threes?! Yes, terrible threes or is it just my toddler.  He turned three this past December and his father and I noticed, he is starting to listen more, tantrums less. Great! We have passed the phase and now on to a life without tantrums. NOT!

Today’s brief dialogue snippet:
Ashton: “Mommy, can I have a big piece of candy?”
Me: “Not until you eat your dinner.”
Ashton: “But I want big piece of candy?”
Me: “Eat first then a piece of candy”
Ashton: Toy car thrown across the room
Me: “Pick it up or you won’t get no type of candy after you eat”
Ashton: Lays on the floor and makes a carpet angel (version of snow angel)

There is something said when your toddler is an only child and he has the vocabulary of a 7 year old rather than a 3 year old, I guess when your an only child and only among adults some his demeanor and conversation will be more kid-like.  More playdates please!!  Sometimes the things he does, I say to myself “I can’t believe I birthed this little human being” or “This little human is being a total monster right now.”  His fearlessness makes me wonder “where and who did he get this characteristic from?” At the end of the day and all my days, I am proud to be the mama ace of this demanding, little ace.

Have a wonderful evening!
