Why I Don’t Believe in the Terrible Twos

twos1

Two is one of my favorite ages. A little bit independent and a little bit babyish. Small enough to hold but big enough to be talking. Two-year-olds can make you laugh out loud with the things they say and do.

“That’s true,” you might say, “but are you really denying the well-documented phenomenon known as The Terrible Twos?”

Yes. And it’s not because my children are perfect angels. And it’s not because parenting is easy. Erik is two right now and his hobbies are saying NO to everything and throwing toys when they don’t work properly. Susanna is three and thinks she is invincible.

Baby Coon Designs Monster Bunz Diaper Pants

You may remember my rave review from a few months back of the Baby Coon Designs hybrid fitted. This time around, I tested out Maria’s Monster Bunz pants which are designed to fit over cloth diapers. Starting at $21.00, Monster Bunz pants are available in size 3-12 months and 1-3 years, both of which have room to grow.

Maria made TWO pairs of pants – one for baby Ingrid and one for Erik – which was so incredibly nice! And I was thrilled with how the fabrics that I chose turned out. Ingrid’s pants are My Little Ponies with a pink waistband and cuffs and Erik’s are a knight and dragon with a dark orange waist and cuffs. Both are from the hard to find knits collection.
