Surviving the terrible two's must be a right of passage for both parents and children alike. To make it out on the other side alive and unscathed is a huge milestone in parenting.
I have survived two of these stages and am now finding myself in the trenches of the third monumental battle. I thought all of my training and experience with the past would have prepared me for this but I was wrong - way wrong.
Jacob has certainly set his sights on testing my patience as a mother and a human being at that. And when I thought it couldn't get any worse, he is always right there to step it up a notch just for kicks.
Don't get me wrong. I am totally kidding, mostly. I know these stages happen and they are part of normal child development but man, this one is kicking my butt!
I give to you Exhibit A.
