The Terrible Not Yet Twos

Today has been, well let’s just say difficult.  I’m trying to be polite.  All day The Baby has flipped in a bi-polar-esque fashion from being cuddly and not wanting to leave mummy’s side, to slapping, kicking, pinching, suffering selective hearing, scowling and screaming, and suddenly back again.  It’s been exhausting just trying to keep up with her mood swings, and even more exhausting traipsing from whichever room we were in… Continue reading
