Wow, these are Terrible Twos

Lately Hamslice has been fighting his nap routine quite a bit. Evidently when he is at home he thinks it's a napless wonderland of cuddling with Mommy. Mommy, of course needs a little break in the afternoons.

Today I put him down for a nap at 12:30. At 1:15 he was still screaming his fool head off and throwing things at the door. When I went in to check on him, I saw a wonderland of destruction:

First step inside the door, I crunch down on his shattered night light. OW.

Second step in the door, I am surprised to see him completely naked.

Third step in the door, I am overwhelmed by the smell of poopy.

Fourth step in the door, I step into the poopy from step 3.

I must admit that I lost my cool a little bit after step 4. We cleaned up and put on a new diaper, I changed my socks, and put him down. Wouldn't you know it, he was snoring in three minutes.

Hmmm. Let's have TWO kids. Yowza.

Hee. At least the twos are shorter than, um, adolescence, right? My niece is 2 1/2 and my dad keeps saying she "was a real pill" on their recent visits. 'Course, my brother and his wife DID have another child a year ago, so she's a bit resentful, ha, which isn't helping matters.

Anyhow, luckily it'll all pass. And that naptime comes pretty quickly. Happy Thanksgiving!
