Amber: Terror of the Household!!!
Amber has been the terror of the household lately. She
screams and kicks and makes a fuss whenever she doesn't get her own way. This little girl knows that when she says:
'I gotta go potty!' that Mommy will rush her to the toilet, no matter WHERE they are.
Amber doesn't like being in bed alone, but she doesn't like to sleep either.
When it is bedtime, she makes poor Juliet miserable. Amber kicks, pokes, and pulls Juliet's hair. If that
doesn't work, then Amber just sits there and talks to Juliet. If Juliet doesn't answer, then Amber starts to
VERY loudly, over and over!
In order to get some sleep, Juliet has had to start sleeping on the couch in the front
room. Amber doesn't like this solution at all! In fact, she is so against the idea of being alone that she has
started making up her own private monster!
Amber's monster is seen only by her, but she seems to see it in the
most unlikely places. Usually on a wall, near the toothpaste, under the table,
or in Richard's shoe. Amber always seems to think the monster wants to eat her. If that is the case, it
undoubtedly has two mouths. One to stick her in, and the other to spit her back out!
Amber has learned how to open the refrigerator. Now whenever she wants something
to eat she can get it herself. Unfortunately, Amber is ALWAYS hungry!! It is impossible to keep pickles in
the house anymore (not that it was easy before!). And Amber has a lot of fun poking her fingers through all
the eggshells. Dropping the eggs on the floor, or trying to hit the cat's head with them is another fun
sport for her as well!
Ah well, I guess that is why they call them the terrible twos! Oooooops! Gotta
run, Amber has to go potty again!
