Christina Applegate Trapped in the Terrible Twos

It is a phase in every toddler’s life that we would likely never want to repeat, the terrible twos. Successful actress Christina Applegate is wading her way through the terrible twos now with her daughter Sadie Grace. She tells More, “We don’t know the best thing to do.” She admits. “She’s starting to get really defiant when we say no and look back at us with an evil look in her eye.”

I have the utmost sympathy for Christina! After living through my own stints with the terrible twos, three times over, it is certainly a phase I am glad I will never have to relive. Suddenly my wonderful, loving, cute little child would turn into a crying, screaming pile of mush over the smallest things. In fact, I remember offering my daughter up for sale over Facebook, jokingly of course, after a particularly bad breakdown where an outsider might have thought a call to an exorcist was in order. What caused the breakdown? She could not find her light purple socks and the exact same newer socks were not good enough because well, they were not the exact same color.

I do have a small warning for Christina and all the other mom’s going through the terrible twos: three is worse. My mom jokingly says the reason no one tells you about the terrorizing threes is so you will let them live through the terrible twos! Luckily, for me I am going through the terrorizing threes with my youngest right now. While his terrible twos were bad, he has now discovered that with his increasing vocabulary he can tell me just what he thinks about my parenting rules as well as exert his control over important things like going potty and staying asleep at night.

Do you have any funny tales about your child’s terrible two phase?

What do you think?

    We call them the theatrical threes. My daughter started early on the terrible 2s and by the time she was 3 it was just more dramatic. She’s getting over it at 4 1/2 now. My son is about 21 months and just getting started. His favorite word is "don’t". It’s a hard age, I think it’s when they start to realize that they’re not a little baby anymore and start having to grow up. It can be overwhelming.

    I don’t even want to think about myself getting into the terrible twos. Don’t get me wrong he will always be the love of my life but at 13 months he already is the craziest man alive! I know everybody says that but hes really unbelievably crazy. Hes a very good listener and he understands everything i say ( i never talk to him in baby talk people use to laugh at me because i would talk to my 3 month old like he was 10 and knew everything i was saying :P) But i can tell hes going to be the type that has to test everything because he already does. He does everything hes not suppose to do just to see if eventually i will give up and let him do it. And hes a climber, boy can he climb. But i can’t be mad, hes too cute to be mad at. And who am i kidding, i enjoy every second chasing that cute butt 😀
