When Toddlers Become Too Much

Props to all the moms who have survived a three year old!

Terrible twos? Pssht! Two was a walk in the park compared to three!  Three = the teenager of the toddler years.

And for us the biggest hit has been that even though you may have had little man sleeping trough the night since he was six months old he now knows how to effectively break out and pull up Netflix in the middle of the night.
