Ok. I need help. and I need it NOW. seems like ever since sophie turned 2, she grew horns, turned in her cute loving personality for a much fierce one. I understand that tantrums are normal and I can handle those. no biggie. I know what to do about those. but I've been faced with a much worse condition. the "the world belongs to me" mentality. they should give prescriptions out for this. its HORRIBLE. apparently everything sophie touches, sees, smells, tastes, anything she owns at home and sees elsewhere, anything in her reach is HERS. MINE! MINE! MINE! is all I hear... all day. everyday. Now, its unfortunate that I know exactly who she picked this up from, and for their sake I won't name names. but don't worry. it's none of you. They don't read my blog. so youre off the hook. :) I have NO idea how to deal with it. do I punish her? ignore it? explain to her that its bad? tell her NO!... I HAVE NO CLUE. I have tried all of these. and I don't know which one to stick with. I don't wanna ignore it TOO much and have her think she can just rule the world... PLEASE HELP MOMS! what did you do when or if your toddler this did?

Sophie's Bday Bash

So the day finally came that I threw sophie's 2nd birthday bash. and let me tell ya... it was a HUGE party. with about 35-40 guests and LOTS of decorations, good food, and lots of fun. Sophie didn't sleep at all the night before, and took a 20 mins nap the day of.... so she was pretty cranky. like always when there is a party going on. then when we went to blow her candles she jammed her hand into the match i had JUST put out because she got frosting on her arm and didn't like it...(miss OCD clean) and burned her hand... it was an eventful birthday... but it turned out GREAT! thanks everyone for coming and sharing this great BDAY with us! and then after mommy accidently burned her....(i'm such a good mom)

Two year old stats

so, just so I remember what my kid can and can't years from now here are her stats. age:2years Sophie can... tell you all the letters, upper and lower case, numbers, shapes, and colors. tell you pretty much whatever she wants to do. throws HUGE tantrums. sleeps good. eats like crap. talks too much. says "that's gay." LOL sings to all her show songs. dances like a rock star. prays :) says thank you and please. and LOVES to play with other kids reads her name and the words mommy and daddy and now happy birthday too :) and can also spell her name Sophie can't. Sit still. open doors. thank goodness.... can't NOT be the center of attention. can't climb big things. can't sleep anywhere else but her bed or car seat or a bed set up for her. love ya baby cakes....
