Hello Threenager, the best age yet?

Lily is now 3 and a quarter. Although I thought the terrible twos were challenging in many ways, I can definitely see how the name “threenager” came about. I have heard many parents’ say that 3 is harder than 2, and in many ways I agree. We have delay tactics in a massive way right now. Every time I ask Lily to do anything it’s “in a minute”.

Terrible Twos & Tantrums: 1 strop, 2 strops, 3 strops, more!

Argh! The terrible twos have come late to the party, and bit us on the bum! Or maybe it’s early threenager: Lily will be 3 in May. Up until now, excluding about 3 months some time between the age of 18 months and 2 when she decided to throw tantrum after tantrum about the smallest of things, she has always been a pretty relaxed little thing.
