Note to Two-Year Old

Dearest wonderful, precious, adorable two-year old daughter of mine:

I can hear you.

Screaming doesn't help me understand you better. It's like talking to someone in a different language...just because you say it louder, does not mean I will understand.

Or, that you will get your way.

You won't.

But, I'll try my very best to understand you.


Mmm'kay then!

All my love,
Your Mama

Pssssstttt...does anyone have an Advil??


  1. I had to laugh. There is so much truth in this! I am past the days of 2 year old, but I remember those times well. A lot of joy, a lot of laughter....and yes, a lot of Advil! Great post!

  2. that is funny! hope you still have your hearing!

  3. I have a 6 YO who screams everything and needs to be reminded constantly that he does not need to scream. Yes, I've had his hearing checked and it is fine. He's just a screamer. Joy!

  4. oh my word, I feel the same way with my 10 month old! I don't really drink, but I always tell my mom that sometimes I want to take shots of tequila just to make my day drown away :)

  5. Jordan screams a lot too. Right in my face. I don't know how to make her stop!!

  6. Ugh, my youngest is headed into the terrible twos and I'm not looking forward to it.

  7. So glad we never went through that with the first one...think we'll get lucky again? Yeah probably not. :)

  8. Funny! My son has one volume level and that is excrutiatingly loud. Happy, sad, mad... doesn't matter. He's just loud.

  9. I have been trying to convince my 2 yo the same thing. Hopefully it works soon cause the screaming has to go! Good luck

  10. I couldn't deal with that at all. Maybe these are all signs that I don't need to reproduce. I think I will stick with my cats

  11. lol! I know what you mean. my lil man does the same thing and he's 21 months

  12. I had to laugh as it reminded me so much of the conversation I just watched between my future sister in law and my adorable future niece =)

  13. I hear you on this one! If I have to say "use your words" one more time... :)

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay! This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby! So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized! You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. ( Ahem... ) Just keepin ' up with the times, friend. So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips... And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips... (Lemme just inte
