Lucifer Lincoln

I kid you not when I say some sort of evil has inhabited my son within the past 3 days. The sweet 2-year old has come & gone...and now we are dealing with a terrible toddler.

Terrible Twos Indeed.

I took Lincoln to the mall play area on Friday, only to stay there for 15 minutes because he decided that he wanted to make a spectacle of himself by throwing himself down on the floor, kicking & screaming. Oh, but not just kicking & screaming I tell you. Let me go ahead & give you a visual. Along with those special effects, he began to literally roll himself across the entire floor, making his way around the whole carpeted area. When he was finished with that, he started bumping his head on things. Awesome. Anger, frustration, annoyance, who knows...When I went to pick him up to put him in his stroller, he lost all control of his body & went completely limp...which almost caused me to drop him on the floor. At this point, I'm trying not to look at him because I'm laughing...what else is there left to do? It was the kind of screaming that you hear in horror the ones where you think "dear Lord, make it stop or my eardrums will start to bleed..." Yep, that kind. He proceeded to do this the entire way out of the mall...the sales people were looking at me, shoppers stopped & stared. Ahh, fun times.

I wonder how bad the next temper tantrum will be...who knows?
The sky's the limit!
