My daughter will be 2 on Friday. TWO! I made it two years with most of my hair (and way more than I care to talk about in some places) and my sanity still reasonably in tact.
But instead of basking in the moment - which is now the length of her naps - I am trying to figure out how she went from toddler to tween in the matter of 2 weeks. Seriously, I think I'm dealing with a 13 year old.
Not only is she extremely particular about what she wears, she changes outfits about 14 times. And apparently, wearing two different shoes (on the wrong feet, of course) is "in." In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if I saw the Olsen twins walking around in the same thing, considering the crazy crap they wear.
Oh. And I get "shooed" out of her room at least 4 times a day. Sure, she's pooping half the time, but still. What is she doing in there that I'm not supposed to see? (Okay, I know what's she's doing and it involves many shoes and a large pile of socks).
And the attitude. I get the "No mama" already and I swear I saw an eyeroll too. Like I'm the biggest uncool idiot to walk the face of this earth and she KNOWS ALL. Of course. She's TWO now. Du-uh.
So I've decided that instead of reading all the toddler mags, I'm making Jenn's Hip Mom and Trendy Tweens blog a daily fixture on my ever-growing blog reading list (hello, FEEDBURNER people!). She's got THREE (yes, she is Jeebus incarnate I think) children including two tween boys. So I figure, I'll get a headstart on things since it seems tweendom is nearing faster than I ever thought possible.
Before you leave to visit her, tell me what stuff your tot does that makes you think he/she is about to turn 13.
