the terrible two's....

So this morning my child drove his hotwheels through pancake syrup at breakfast....repeatedly jumped on the furniture and crawled/climbed over me for the next few hours. Refused to take a nap until I had to run errands, then wanted to fall asleep in the car, making it difficult for me to push him in a stroller while carrying a huge rubbermaid tub full of clothes.....I was such a nice mommy I still got him an icee when he asked for one on the way home. When we got back home he displayed some very destructive behavior with Hulk, throwing him against the wall and floor several times. Climbed on the cabinets and table. When I threatened to spank him, he saved me the trouble and spanked himself, laughing as if it was a game. Looking at him standing up there, spanking himself while ripping the curtains off the wall, I had to take my own time out. I closed my eyes and took some deep breaths to calm down. I decided to give him his own drawer in the kitchen so it would be easier for him to help tidy up the mess of toys he brings into the living room everyday. At the moment he is sitting on the potty (but not pottying) for the 3rd time today. When he gets off he will undoubtedly run to the kitchen and stand by the pantry whining for cookies and refuse to eat anything else for dinner. I estimate another 3.5 major tantrums and a couple minor ones before bedtime. But just breathe. We WILL get through this!!
