He used to wake up with a smile on his face, eager to run out of his bedroom into his Mommy's waiting arms. Now he wakes up in hysterics, either angry or sad about some perceived atrocity that has occurred. The majority of the time there is no actual atrocity, but it's hard to convince that to a 2-year-old who is hysterical.
Every morning he stomps around, crying or pouting, for a half hour or so, making our morning rituals of getting dressed and having breakfast that much more chaotic. Doesn't he know that mornings at our house are already chaotic enough without his help? We have three kids aged 3 and under, for crying out loud!!!!
The good news is that we have less than 6 months to wait until he turns 3. I am sure that his moodiness will turn off like a switch when that happens. Then it will be clear sailing until he heads off to college. Right? Hello?
