Terrible One-and-a-halfs?

Is it possible that my precocious little angels have decided to up the ante and enter the "terrible twos" a few months early? This morning as I was trying to leave for work, Z decided that she should wear the string of beads I had on. Woe to you who says NO to Z. She basically yelled "BEADS" for the next 20 or so minutes. So much that C had to get into the act. She didn't even know what she was pissed off about, but it was getting Z attention, so why not.

This continued through the better part of the morning and only paused while Z stuffed eggs in her face and re-started with a vengeance when I dared not share my cereal with her. Never mind that she had already eaten the following:

1 egg w/ spinach
~20 grapes
1/2 banana
1/2 slice of toast w/ cream cheese

Clearly she was starving and needed to eat Kashi G0Lean. For her diet.

And speaking of diets, mine is going crap-tacular. I need to care more about the size of my ass. The other night I was fishing under the radiator for a missing trove of little people when my butt set off the little people farm. More specifically the pig pen. So that it appeared I was oinking. I thought mom and H would fall off the couch laughing.

Send pie. dietetic pie.

Alex was a spectacularly emotional and difficult 15-21 month old. I thought it was terrible twos but he's been a very pleasant two year old.

Nate however has put the TERRIBLE in terrible twos.

Personally I'm glad they spaced them out.

Maybe I can hope that Zoe will get it out of her system now. Chloe was a miserable infant, so maybe she got all of her "terribles" out? Can I dream? :)

Don't you just love the cranky phases? They seem to come and go a lot in my house right now.

Good luck with the weight stuff. It's kicking my butt. We're blogging about it at The Ladies of Loserville if you have any interest in joining in. Might as well have a support system / guilt trip. :-)

Thanks for leaving a comment for delurker day!
