Whoever came up with the 'terrible twos' was on crack.

As Kieran stands on the threshold of three years, we're beginning to wonder if we're going to survive the melodrama that seems to accompany this time. This morning's major meltdowns were a torn construction paper butterfly (made over a year ago) at 6:30 & dumping an entire bottle of bubble solution on my little lithodora in the backyard at 11:30. I'm amazed none of the neighbors called CPS by how much Kieran was wailing & carrying on outside.. or maybe my husband will get a knock on the door this afternoon, who knows.

Both situations were relatively easy to fix (I traced a new butterfly from the remains and put it on the old one's stick to 'fly' again & partially refilled the bubble bottle with a stern warning to not throw it again) but re-establishing emotional equilibrium took substantially longer. I'm hopeful my lithodora will be ok and know that somehow we'll make it through all this.. but ugh.
