Terrible might be an understatement

We have entered the "terrible twos." Words can't express how much fun we're having this week. Poor Jamie is out of town and missing all the fun. I was a nanny, I thought I knew what I was in for, but this is ridiculous. I don't think I could even count the tantrums that Emma has thrown this week. She has one when she gets in the carseat and one when she gets out. One when you offer her food and one when you don't. One when you ask if she wants to talk on the phone and one when I'm talking because she didn't want to. EVERYTHING causes a tantrum and she's learned tha if she says "owie" it gets my attention. She changes from an angel to Satan in half a second and then back again just as quickly. She's a toddler version of Dr. Jeckell and Mr. Hyde.
I am at my whit's end. I have never experienced this and am definately not equipped to handle it.
Please tell me it won't be like this all year.

We are currently in the EXACT same spot with Ryan. I ask him if he wants food, he says no, then cries and says he wants it. Among about a billion other things and everything you described about Emma. AHHH!

It does get better because I SWORE Adin wasn't like this but everyone reminds me he was...and clearly mommy brain has erased that from my memory!

Hugs to you momma, I'd love to get together on a day you have off - we can get the 2's together and they can say no to each other!

Ditto on the exact same thing with Ethan. One minute screaming his head off, the next he is as sweet as can be. Enough to drive me crazy! We should have a "terrible twos" brunch or something! :o)
