The stubbornesses kicking in

Today has been one of those days when the "terrible 2's" (which I never really believed were real) have overtaken the beautifulness of the day.

Its been like this:

Em, close the refrigerator door (it was cute when we taught her to open it, not so much now).

Em, leave the kitten alone. Em, get off the kittens head. Em, let go of the kittens tail. Do you see his ears back? It means he is ticked off. Em, stop pushing the kitten down when he is trying to get a drink of water.

Em, get out of the water dish.

Em, go ahead and throw yourself down to the ground kicking and screaming, you aren't getting any chips right now.

Em, turn the tv back on.

Em, did you poo? [Em shakes head no], come here so Mama can check, yep, you did.

Then lastly:

Em, do you want to take a nap? [Em shakes head no].

Sorry you need one, and the kitten needs a break.

I hate days like that!

My daughter stopped her AM nap, but she REALLY needs it!! Luckily she still takes her PM nap, but some days she whines so much - I often think about at least trying to get her to lay down.

She has "rest" time on the sofa, but that just doesn't seem to cut it.
