Alright, now that we’re into the depths of the terrible twos, I feel like I can honestly talk about our experience.
I might be jinxing myself for the threes here, but honestly? This age gets a bad rap.
I have figured out that the twos just work for us. They’re fun! Emma Ramey is really starting to develop a personality. Y’all – she’s funny. Noah and I say all the time that she’s funnier than either one of us ever were. And she can have the sweetest, most caring personality sometimes too.
She’s really starting to develop manners and show that she wasn’t raised by a pack of wild wolves. She’s always the first one to say “bless you” when someone sneezes, “thank you” when someone gives her something, or “excuse me” when she’s in somebody’s way.
We’ve gotten to the point where I don’t have to supervise her 100% of the day. If she wants to play independently at the park, so be it! Of course I always have my eye on her, but it seems like the twos are much less needy than the ones. She’s quick to go out and try to make friends (most of the time). That has to be one of the most interesting things to watch in the world – how your child interacts with other children her age. I am fascinated by it.
