Ugh. It was bound to happen. Right?!
She hasn’t always acted so defiant.
Her falling and rolling on the floor in tears is the last thing I want to deal with.
I think it’s time to show her who’s boss, because it’s definitely not her in her little 2T pants.
I’m guessing that she’s hit her “Terrible Twos” and she’s not even two-years-old yet! But hey, 18-months is close enough.
Woosah! This behavior is considered normal.
My daughter Kimani Lee is at the age where she’s talking, but she can’t quite articulate everything she wants to say. Therefore, she gets frustrated with me when I don’t understand her.
But her screaming and crying… No ma’am. Not today.
Honestly, I just think at times that she’s trying to test her limits, but Kimani needs to understand that my rules are to be followed.
I encourage exploration. I want Kimani to have fun while learning and further develop her imagination. But there are boundaries set for her protection. Even if it’s not safety related, there is a reason behind everything. I’m sure the lesson of “Mama knows best” will never get old in our household.
I have to put everything into perspective. She’s actively testing her newfound mobilities to navigate in this big world. And I will have to be consistent and remain patient, because this is common behavior for toddlers at this stage.
This is all part of her growing independence. My baby isn’t quite a baby anymore.
