Raising a Two Year Old
I can’t tell you how many times I have been stopped on the street and asked, “Hey Russ! What’s it like raising a two year old?” Actually I can tell you. It’s never happened. But I think that’s just because I put off an unapproachable vibe when I’m on the street. I wear a shirt that says, “If you are close enough to read this, then I’m probably about to mace you.” So maybe it’s me. But I wish you’d approach me more often. I like you. And I like your question.
So what IS it like raising a two year old? This is a really difficult question to answer. So I thought I would give you a day in the life kind of pictorial thingy. So, without further ado, here’s my interpretation of a day in the life with a two year old:
I hope this gives you an idea as to a typical day with a two year old. It’s a lot of ups and downs, lefts and rights. You’ll think they are happy, and then you suddenly realize that you totally screwed them over by touching, or not touching, standing too close or too far, or looking at something incorrectly. You cannot win. It is impossible to win. The game is rigged so that no matter what you do, you will lose. This is the way of the two year old.
Are you dealing with a two year old? What are some of your tantrum horror stories?
