What I'm dealing with today. . .
Meet Princess Kylie McBossyPants, of the Land of Mine. This is how she looked at me after I told her she could not have any more toothpaste (which she considers a snack food). She has most definitely hit toddlerdom. She went through a brief phase (a few weeks) where any time anyone told her "no" or "don't", she would stick out her fat, pouty lip and then burst into tears. When that stopped getting enough attention for anyone to comfort her, let alone give her what she wanted, she gave up on it and moved on to glaring and scowling, which she is bizarrely good at for such a young child. She does have a very strong bossy streak, but she usually figures out very quickly just how far that will get her and changes her approach, so I still have hope.
