PSF - Terrible Twos have nothing on Three!

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

This picture should really say it all:


I had forgotten about the Three's. Where did my sweet little girl go? Who ever came up with the "Terrible Two's" must not have experienced three yet. She is really trying to test me over and over again each day. I get that above face when I even mention bed time. Then the screaming, the yelling and the crying starts. I realize she wants to learn how to be independent and I am willing to help to some degree, but I hate it when she won't let me to ANYTHING to help her and then of course it takes forever for her to get her socks on. I know she will grow out of this stage and during some of her episodes she can be quite cute, but wow, its been a struggle. I just want my sweet girl back!

Great photo!

I hear ya on the youngest is not quite there (2 mos to go)but I have a feeling that the terrible twos are going to carry over into the threes.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Did you just follow me through the store and write my story for your PSF? Oh, wait, we're still in the terrible twos. THIS is not encouraging...
I think it's an adorable picture though and I love her outfit (I only have one girl-- I notice clothes).
Great PSF!

Oh my goodness. I love that picture. I hear ya !! My first born was an angel. I didn't his any terrible twos or anything. My second born ... she's making up for that. She's 1.5yrs old and is a holy terror!

Couldn't you just lie to me. :)

Everybody I have talked to lately says beware of terror that is THREE. So thanks for confirming that. :)

Hold me.

I love that shot, it's so perfectly her. She is just an absolute doll!

I don't seem to have a problem with the 3 year olds at work. It's the 4 and 5 year olds that give me trouble, probably because they're the oldest kids there and think they can run things.

I love the "terrible twos"...its the fours that I am not looking forward to. Stinkers.

I la-la LOVE that shot. It is terrible three perfection.

Oh, yes I think the same thing about the 3s! We are on to 4s and we'll just have to wait and see how that goes.

she's still your sweet girl - don't ever forget it! as far as taking advice tho - that's not going to change for at LEAST another 10 years - maybe more! in these trying moments i try to remember barbara coloroso's words - 'if it's not illegal, unhealthy or immoral - let it go!" mostly works! she's a cutie July 18, 2008 at 5:26 PM  

Bing bing! I thought two was EASY! Three is pure difficulty!

Great photo! My youngest granddaughter is 3 and she is also striving for independence & it doesn't matter how long it takes her to do something, she has to do it by herself! Can't hurry her!

We haven't hit the threes yet, but considering the twos have been great I can't imagine what we are in for.

This makes me think of that country song by Billy Dean--- Let Them Be Little--- they are only that way for awhile :)

Susie July 18, 2008 at 10:22 PM  

I TOTALLY understand. I am in the exact same boat. The hard part is letting them just be painfully slow and not worry about timing. SO HARD!
She a beauty! Great picture!!

I saw the title of your post on MOm on the Run's blog and totally had to pop over.
Three was complete hell for us. Here I thought I had totally scored the most perfect child, in fact it must reflect my superior parenting because she rocked. Then she turned Three ... EGADS we had a rough year. But we are through it and I can proudly say that four is so so so much better. Hang in there!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Wow can I relate to those terrible three's. The two's were cake compared to this. My sweet little Evan has returned after a 3 week rampage. I pray four is better! Ahhh..It will get better, right!! Love your PSF!!!

So true! Three was infinitely worse than two. Nearly five is a lot more pleasant. More grownup and not quite as little kid cute, but a whole lot easier.

She's a beauty even when she's being a stinker though. I hope she gave you an easier day after that.

Cute pic...I hear you...We are solidly in the threes over here:O
