The Twos...Terrible or Terrific?

Twice this week, I have said something about the twos being terrible and twice this week I was corrected with "Oh, you mean terrific!" And they were very serious, so it started me thinking... is it terrible or terrific? Sure on his birthday in May and even on the 4th of July- I would have never used the phrase terrible twos... HA! I guess we had to grow into them... the body flop when we have to leave some place fun, using a sharpie on my scrapbook table, hunting our poor dog with a toy pirate sword, and of course his new favorite word "NO!" I will not even tell you about our poop issue, the screw driver story, or why we may never be welcome back to JC Penny again! Terrible, I tell you! And then like a flip of a switch... he is my precious boy again. When you sneeze he will hug you and ask "Are you okay?" He can let the dog in and out, throw away trash to help you, and beg for you to keep reading to him! He holds my hand while watching a movie, rubs my hair when I lay down on the couch, and thinks I am the funniest person in the world. He really is terrific! I am guessing it will be like child birth or even pregnancy... one day you will forget the terrible stuff and just remember the terrific!


  1. Ohhh, my TERRIFIC grandson needs hugs from LaLa. That 1st pic broke my heart. I can make it feel better. The 2nd picture is the little boy I know. Never say never Mom & Dad!!!!!

  2. I wish you were here too! Adam couldn't believe I took the first one of him crying on the time out rug, but ya know us scrapbookers... all for the sake of memories!

  3. I wanna hear about JC Penney's! I wish I could freeze Sophia at this age...14 months is the best!

  4. When Mom & Dad are bad Mike can always call 1-361-790-POPS! He can make it better.

  5. I am right there with you! The two's interesting. I have to say though, I think the threes are better. I know some people think it is the threes that are terrible but I will take my three-year-old Jane over two-year-old Jane any day of the week.


Let's go make something,
