Oh. My. GOD.

DD's not even two (22mo) yet but she's turning into a little terror before my eyes. Favourite phrase is "Don't like it". Favourite word is "No". Won't walk if DH is around to carry her (although will walk a long way for me). Tonight has gone to sleep with a TOWEL. hmm Demands Weetabix and raisins for breakfast each morning, picks out one raisin and pushes bowl away, "Don't like it mummy take it away". Will not wear anything on her feet other than wellies. At all times. Even when asleep.

Don't actually expect any words of wisdom as I expect there aren't any, but she's a little gem when we go out, so no-one believes us when say she's a little sod at home!!!!

Feel better now!

Aw, manchester, I think many of us share your pain.

Infuriating little things, aren't they?

I have to say that ds has got easier to handle since turning three. It doesn't last forever, but feels it at the time. wink

ummmmm I am finding our 22 month old hard. How do you solve the "leading you" around the farm/shops/ etc thing and running at 60MPH???

We have leading round BACKWARDS. When she's not refusing to move due to "scary cars".

My DC2 is a girl (17 months) and her behaviour is a lot more madam-ish than I had expected - my DC1 is a 3yo boy and he would never have behaved like this, although he would wreck things more. DD doesn't wreck things, she is very careful with DS's toys, but she makes up for it in other ways!!

[Do not read on if easily offended!]

If served some food that she didn't like the look of, she would shout "BIN" at me! Even when she has requested something specific like a banana, she will eat what she fancies and throw the rest of it gleefully out of her highchair shouting "No! Naughty!". If something is going to happen that she doesn't want (being put in highchair/whatever), she says the following "Oh no! Fuck it!". I honestly have no idea when she learnt this, I try not to swear infront of my children, but I do have the odd moment where I lose my temper and I must have said this and she has chosen to learn it and repeat it in context shockshockshock.

crokky - oh dear! But in a sick kind of way a little funny, sorry! I said "Oh my God" about something the other day and DD has added that to her vocab...

crokky DH and I are pissing ourselves!

Sounds like a nightmare!

My DD1 is 26mo and is getting worse every day...

My DS was a very sweet little boy at 17m, he said nice words like "car" and "sheep" and not much else. My DD is a wild child! Even worse, DD knows her phrase is attention grabbing - my mum heard it, looked at me in disbelief and then cracked up laughing!! DD was very pleased with herself. My mum then tried to convince DD that the phrase was actually "Bucket" and drew her a picture of a bucket, but DD did not fall for it...I am just hoping she does not say it in front of anyone - strangely, she behaves very nicely in public so I am hoping I will be OK!
