Don't let that sweet face fool you. If you look closely, especially at the reflection in the glass, there is pure evil hiding in that 2 year olds face.
With Miss Leona, every day, at some point is a "Terrible Twosday". She can throw fits and stomp her feet like none other. Her favorite thing to say is "No Fair!" and she'll
say shout it for anything. "Leona, you need to go up and go potty, please." "No fair!" "Leona, lunch is ready." "No fair!" "Leona do you want to take a bubble bath" "No fair!" I guess it could be slightly worse, it could just be a flat out "NO!".
Lately she has been loudly protesting the jogging stroller. This is sooooo sad to me because, well, we spent a lot of money on our double jogger and I plan on using it for a very loooooooong time. Also, sometimes I'd rather sleep in and run while Emme & Calvin are at school, in the coveted daylight hours... which requires taking both Jonny & Leona. "No Fair!"
Today, when she woke up Dan and I were talking about how it is going to be a sunny day (Hooray!) and that yesterday she said was
singing yelling, "Sun, sun go away" because the sun got in her eyes while we were running. "No fair!" So, I mentioned that next time we go running we'll have to bring her sunglasses, which of course led to her wanting to run today. Well, it just so happens that today is not a running day for me and my legs are tired so I don't plan on changing that. "I'm sorry Leona, we aren't running today." Which was of course met with, "No fair!" Go figure, the one day in the last month that she actually wants to go running we aren't doing it. I can never win.
Until I see this:
|why yes, she is eating frosting out of a can and yes, that is Calvin in the background playing the wii|
and especially this:
and realize that even on those really terrible twosdays I already have won.
Pretty soon she'll be three, then four, the thirty four and I won't be able to take her running with me or make her hold my hand to cross the street anymore, so terrible two or not, she's mine and I love her quirkiness.
