On the Subject of Two-Year-Olds, Part 3

| October 30, 2013 | 0 Comments

3. All two-year-olds all have a natural skill called the “Wet Noodle”.

It’s a very effective form of resistance that expends little energy (for them, I mean). You know, when it’s time to

and they don’t want to. When you try to pick them up, their bones suddenly liquefy, and it’s like trying to lift a 30-pound garbage bag full of oatmeal.

The best is when they activate the “Wet Noodle” when you’re trying to dress them. Ever tried to get a pair of pants on cooked spaghetti?

About the Author ()

I am a lifelong (award-winning!) cartoonist and mother of two delightful boys, aged 7 and 5. I like to view today's adventures in parenting as material for tomorrow's cartoon. Looking at family life through "cartoon-coloured glasses" helps me keep the all-important sense of humour required for raising kids... even for the events that don't seem so funny at the time.
