Hot! No! Cold!

Oh the delights of two and three year olds.

Our beloved Wee One is working through both the terrible two's and the terrible three's right now.

He's vaulted right from the "No!" two year old phase, straight into the deliberate disobedience, defiance, and back-talk three year old phase.

He's also expressing potty interest while at the same time sliding back into some separation anxiety/mama-obsession.

And I haven't even mentioned the hitting, pushing, and head-butting

All in all - he's frustrating and challenging.

I remember when his big bro was going through this phase (though he opted not to do it all at once), I wrote this post about being angry.

Luckily, this time around - I don't have a baby to contend with at the same time.

So, I try to find ways to enjoy his cranky highness. Challenging as that may be. 'Cuz when brother's being cute, man-oh-man is he a heartbreaker.

Sometimes we go out for munchkins. 

We sit at a little table and someone says, "Oh! Hi!" to every person who walks in.

He opens his mouth so big but then takes wee baby bites.
We have a lovely conversation about munchkins and trucks - and anything else that happens to drive by.

And for a few brief moments, I'm not furious and frustrated. 

Sadly, though, at some point there are no more munchkins. But it's good while it lasts.
