The terrible not quite twos


I had meant to do more regular updates on the little tykes progress, but you know what its like when things get in the way! The little man is now 19 months old and is really turning into a right little character. He has always been a very good little boy and incredibly cute and sweet natured, the staff at nursery absolutely adore him. But I am afraid he may be on the turn!!!

Bedtimes used to be fine, but lately they are becoming a little bit fraught at times. What changed? He doesn’t want to go upstairs. He doesn’t want to go into his bedroom. He most certainly doesn’t want to go into his pyjamas and sleeping bag. He knows the routine off by heart and can see it coming, he just doesn’t want the fun to stop even though he is dirt tired. We do our best to keep him settled and make the atmosphere nice and calm, by reading books and cuddling. This works most of the time, but some nights he gets himself into an absolute tiz. The dummy is spat out and chucked across the room. The blankie toy is tossed onto the floor. Then he arches his back and has an epic cry. Oh dear! He calms down eventually.

Supermarket shopping is also a no no at the moment. He doesn’t want to be in the push chair. He doesn’t want to sit in the trolley. He wants to walk on the floor, in the opposite direction to where you want to go. Try holding his hand? Nope, he doesn’t want to do that. Thank the lord for internet shopping is all I say.

But the rest of the time he is great really. He eats well, sleeps well and loves to play. He likes listening to songs and when he sees characters from his favourite tv shows dance he loves to copy. He walks well and loves to chase his naughty cat! He babbles in his own little language when he is playing and knows a couple of words, but we are trying to encourage him to learn more. He will get there in his own sweet time.

I cannot believe how much my little boy has changed, its hard to imagine him as the tiny, helpless newborn baby that I welcomed into the world. I cherish every day with him and I look forward to all the wonderful moments we will share. I love you little tyke!!!!

I hope you all have a nice evening, ta ta xxx

  1. He sounds so happy! That really is a good age, I must say: they’re funny and sweet, don’t talk back, and don’t really know how to “test limits” yet. Enjoy this time! And honestly, not every kid gets terrible twos, so don’t stress until it happens. And some kids don’t get the “twos” until they’re almost 3! So I hope your little guy stays sweet as sugar (but starts falling asleep easier! It will happen….).


  2. My daughter is 3 in a couple months. The twos haven’t been bad, yes she asserts herself more, toothbrushing was a nightmare for a while! But it was fine, I think the hardest bit is she is slow on the talking front (she still won’t say the whole word! Only the first bit!) so because we can’t understand her sometimes or she didn’t have the words to express what she wanted, that was when we had most drama! I’ve loved her being 2, here’s hoping 3 is just as fun!
