On having two

Latest post up at The Bump!

Well, FIRST of all, having two is exhausting. This is not news, nor is it particularly interesting, but it is TRUE and must be said. So. It is exhausting.

Second of all, the “terrible threes” have descended upon us, officially beginning this past Saturday, the 24th. Sure, sure, the saying is “terrible twos” but that’s only because it’s alliterative. Three is MUCH harder than two. Last Tuesday I very nearly lost my mind entirely as every single solitary act I required of him became a battle of epic proportions. Sit on the potty. Wash your hands. Let me brush your teeth. Put on underpants. Put on underpants. Put on underpants. We will not discuss anything else until you put on underpants. Underpants. Underpants. FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, CHILD, PUT ON YOUR UNDERPANTS.
