Ok a bit or a rant here, but I want to know if this kind of behaviour is normal 2 yo stuff!
Ruby can be the most lovely, loving little girl, but on a bad day, or more to the point, when she is not getting exsctly what she wants, she turns into a tyrant! Some days from the moment she gets up, its whinge this, 'I want peppa pig, another pepper pig' in a whiney half crying voice, or she is literally having a sooky tantrum because Henry has touched her flat bear, or I havent attended to her straight away.
This morning I was trying to get her ready for childcare and went to put a dress on her and she starts whinging that she doesnt want that dress. I put it on her anyway and she chucks the biggest tantrum that I take it off and ask her what she wants to wear. We go up to her room and everything I suggest end up in a meltdown. I ask her what she wants to wear but to no avail. By the way, her language is so good that we can easily discuss everything and there is no frustration for her in getting across what she wants. So a few stints in the naughty dorner later and numerous attempts to get something on her I end up having to hold her legs and just put some pants on. She finally calms down. But it is so exhausting! She is so bossy and demanding! Is this just normal terrible two's stuff do you think??
