Chalk Treats

Today was a rough day for Jane. She has officially hit the "terrible twos" and mommy is reading up on how to cope with it... just not quickly enough. From hitting people and walls to yelling "NO, NO, NO!" over and over, toddlerdom has entered our home.
A bit of her curious nature emerged today. I caught her just in time as she was putting a small piece of orange chalk to Lucy's mouth, saying "You want a snack, Lucy?". Uh, no. She does not want a snack! Then Jane ran off, as she normally does now when caught in the act of naughtiness. A few minutes later she came up to me with her hands all soggy and orange, and her tongue hanging out of her mouth, all covered in orange chunks and drool.
Guess that snack wasn't so tasty after all.

It gets better. Give yourself, Jane and the baby time to adjust. Take lots of naps and baths and don't worry about the house. It will get cleaned eventually. We love you and hope you are doing well.

Yum! I'm sure chalk is good source of some sort of mineral, though, right?

I agree with the person above. It does get better. But in the meantime, you'll have plenty of good stories to share, I'm sure.

Chalk is healthy for you right? Anyway...congats on your new little Lucy...she's adorable! How is Jane with having her around?

Being two is just as hard for the child as for the adult. Then they get past it, and you feel relieved until they turn 13 and it starts all over again! They're awfully cute, though.

Oh, dear! Sounds like she's 'learning by doing'! I'm sure you both will survive this stage!
