My lovely DD is currently being consumed by the terrible twos. I didn't realise how crazy some of their demands can be. For example I am no longer allowed to have my hair down. I must always wear a bobble. So, for a bit of fun I'm asking for crazy toddler behaviour you've witnessed. I know I can't be the only one
My 2 year old grandson is so bossy -We are babysitting and every inch of my day has been directed - walk like this nanny, say aah nanny, say rivet rivet nanny, hop nanny hop, dance nanny dance - he's asleep now peace
My 3 1/2 year old got very angry because I wouldnt move the sun (it was in his eyes). He didnt want me to help him block out the sun, or walk in a different direction he wanted me to physically make it go away and stop following him. My was he angry when I wouldnt
My threenager asked told me to give her, her treat before she had dinner to which I responded with, 'no, you can have it after you've eaten your meal'
And I got the whole attitude, head bobbing, diva body movement response of:
'Do you know what I'm going to do mummy? I'm going to switch off the television so Little Brother can't watch it. And that's your fault because you didn't give me my treat'
Me: 'DD, please don't switch it off'
She then proceeds to pick up the remote, lifts it up so I can see that she has it, does this whole attitude face again with eyebrows , facial expressions and tutting and switches off the television, looking back at me with a really smug face.
Shrugs her shoulders and says, 'you made me do it'.
At this point I hide behind the food cabinet and tried my best to stop laughing because I just couldn't be angry. I just saw a mini me from when I was a teenager. And now I have a glimpse of what's to come in the future.
It was more of a 'oh no you didn't' moment. I couldn't even speak to her about her attitude because it just made me laugh everytime I thought about it.
