I wouldn't call them the terrible two's, although trust me we have our days. I would say they are more like the mischivous two's. There have been plenty of times though, when Adam will come home and I will do some retail therapy at Target soon after so I can breathe a little. Especially lately. Last week for instance she got into my lipstick... She got it all over the carpet, my bedroom mirror, she pulled the white pillows down and made sure to got the lipstick on them and not to mention all over herself as well. I'm pretty sure this was in response to me putting her in time out. Considering she closed my door and couldn't stop smiling when she called me in. The closed door should have been a dead give away. Also she finds it amusing to get into my "feminine products" which she thinks are boo boo's or band- aids and put them in different spots in the house.
In this instance the TV cabinet.
Along with lipstick and clear lip gloss over my bedroom mirror lotion seems to be her medium of choice in the following picture. All of these items have since found new homes out of her grasp.
Avery likes to paint and color a lot. We have since switched from normal paints and markers to color wonders that don't show up on anything else except the paper used with the color wonder products.
It's not unusual for her to get two or three baths a day... but she likes baths... so I'm thinking these messes might be on purpose. She definitely keeps me busy and on my toes, but I love her so much! It's awesome to see her grow. She has her sweet side too and that makes it all worth it!
