Daniel, Daniel, quite contrary
How does your day go?
Napless, whining, wanting your way
And lots of “No, No, No, No, No!”
Daniel is 32 months. He was so easy-going and laid-back for the last several months that I thought we had perhaps escaped the Terrible Twos.
Au contraire. In the last few weeks, it’s like someone flipped a switch, and he has started to demand his way. And the whining when he doesn’t get his way is a-may-zing. He’s also become very fond of saying the opposite of what he means, which is quite maddening:
Me: Daniel, do you want to go outside?
Daniel: No, not go outside.
Me: Ok, we’ll stay inside.
Daniel: (on the verge of tears) Go outside! Go outside!
Thankfully, he’s still pretty cute 🙂
