So....do any of your kids back talk you? Adriana has always been a pretty good little girl. Recently she has started to back talk. She just ripped all her books off her bookcase, so I asked her to please pick them up and put them back. So she said, with a very sassy tone: "NO! I not gonna pick up, I readin'!"
This isn't the first time she's done this, it happens quite a bit. She throws major fits now. Is this the start of the terrible two's? Lord help me if it is.

Ava's been throwing tantrums for about 2 months now. I feel your pain. I'm reading The Happiest Toddler on the Block right now.

Maybe I should think about reading that.
I forgot to mention we'll be starting potty training soon. I put underwear on her the other day, just to see what her reaction would be when/if she peed. She didn't even react! I thought for sure she wouldn't like the feeling and that would entice her to use her potty chair. I might try buying a bigger size so the crotch hangs down....maybe she won't like that. Hopefully.

I'm 1/2 way through. Tonight I get to the part where you learn how to communicate to your toddler. I can't wait to read it. I'll let you know if I recommend it.
The Happiest Baby on the Block saved my life, so I'm sure this one will too. I'm sick of the tantrums and her being so emotional all the time.

How old are your little ones right now? Hannah's at almost 19 months old and she's right there too. Tantrums don't phase me too much unless they are in public. The thing that really gets my goat is the utter defiance and slap that she gave me the other day because she didn't want me changing her diaper. I just didn't know how to react! I felt like spanking her which would not have been good, so I put her in her crib, said NO HITTING and walked out of the room. you would be amazed how effective a two and a half minute time out is.

Adriana will be 2 in March. She's normally good when it's just me, but if we have anyone over, or she's with both my husband and I, she just turns into a monster!

When my aunt was trying to potty train my cousin she put underwear on her and told her she was wearing big girl pants now. She took her outside and told her that if she had to pee to tell her so that she could take her inside to potty but if she peed herself she could not go in the house. It worked. After a few times of doing that she got the hint and went in the potty.

yikes! Hannah is only terrible at home. When she's out she's polite and puts on her cheezy face. The doctor told me that's a sign of a smart kid. I don't know what to think about that. I think both the girls have been getting feisty because f the holidays and everything being topsy turvy and Geneva being home all day etc etc. I can't wait for this to all be overand things get back to normal.
