it's Just A Phase

There has been a big transition lately. My kids who are now again sleeping in their room is slowly getting used to it again well, except for the little girl. She wakes up in her sleep when she knows I’m not beside her anymore. It never fails. The minute I went out of their room, the next thing I know she’s knocking on their door again. Not a bad thing though. But this terrific twos has been wanting me to scream out loud already. I have been dealing it the best way I know I can but the little girl has found her way also to drive her point. Always.


I am quite amused how she can express herself and communicates with us even with her brother. She has new addition to her vocabulary and knows what is “inside”, “outside”, “upstairs” and “downstairs”. But you know what she’s good at? Her self-expression. When you reprimand her she would make a cross face enough for Boboy to ease her. Note that she knows how to persuade her dad that I find it hard to discipline her at some point. Argh. I can’t blame Boboy though because the daughter knows very well how to melt us. Really.

Just recently she found a new way of telling us, “I am the boss” attitude by her ear-cracking whining and rolling-on-the-floor moments. I must tell you, I nearly had a meltdown myself. I thought to myself, I am dealing with it graciously but never did I felt very bad at some point. I can do grocery shopping with only the two of them but just recently; she makes it VERY hard for me. She wants to go running around the aisles, holds everything and purposely drops things in the stands. The worst she did was she lies down on the floor when we were about to go because she wants to keep hanging herself on the rails by the cashier. People sometimes are already looking at us but I don’t care anyway.



Well, everything is just a phase. I am sharing this because somewhere out there, some moms just like me who is nannyless might also be experiencing the same way as I am. It’s okay. Your kids are fine and my little girl too. It is just a phase. Somehow you will miss it also just like the how I miss my son’s meltdowns then.

How about you? How are you dealing with your terrific twos babies? Let's share notes.
