Terrible twos???

難纏的兩歲終於到了? 現在會和我討價還價了喔!

不是才吃過午餐嗎?怎麼又說餓餓?是不想睡午覺找的藉口吧…
不是想要媽媽帶你出門嗎?又不要了?哦,要出門?啊,不要出門?現在又要出門啦?Mika, 那你…你到底是要?還是不要出門?
還要一塊餅乾?對不起,沒有餅乾。媽媽說沒有就是沒有了…剛剛飯飯都還沒吃完就說吃飽了,怎麼會有餅乾呢?

……

……

這樣的戲碼每天一定會上演…加碼戲也很頻繁…
…是在考驗媽媽是吧,我知道…
是想看看媽媽的脾氣耐心有多好…這個我也了解…
是在建立你自己的獨立人格了喔!媽媽也明白…
是在探索你身邊這個社會可以或是不可以的極限是吧…加油囉!

 ……

媽媽也跟著你的世界一起成長!訓練媽媽的人格素養,會越磨越圓滑是吧…媽媽也加油囉!

Terrible twos???  25 months now, and yes…kind of…age of terrible twos…
The temper tantrums…refusal to obey…”No” to everything (well, OK, a lot…)

(At dining table)
Me: Mika, are you still hungry…if not, I am going to clean the table…do you still want your noodle???
Mika: (hmmmm)
Me: Ok. Yummy, right…smell sooo yum…

(10 minutes later, not eating…still playing)
Me: Mika, looks like you are done…are you still hungry???
Mika: No.
Me: Yeah…now, Mama is going to clean up…(take his dish away)
Mika: More, more…

(bring the dish back)
Me: Wow, Mika wants more…
(not eating…playing)
Me: are you still hungry???
Mika: No.

(take his dish away again)
Mika: More, More (crying)

(bring dish back to him)
Me: Ok. Mika, one more time, Mama asks you…do you still want to eat your noodle???
Mika: No.

(take away his dish…again…and dump the leftover)
Mika: MORE, MORE…(crying)

……

Yes…yes, and no everyday…he says “no” more though…
…always challenge me…to see where the limit is…
…always test me…to see how good temper I have…
……

Someone told me before…there is end of this stage…just hold on tight till he turns 3…

……

I know this is a good sign…you are testing you world…to see what is “OK.”, what is “No”…
I know this is the way should be…you are more independent now…you make your own decision…
I know I am proud of you…you have strong voice…and Mama hears that…

……

Let’s grow together…this is a fun, fun, roller coaster ride…to our joy land…
