Overreaction From My Two Year Old

Alternatively this could be titled, "My Little Drama-Princess."

So recently LittleLim has been talking a lot! There are days where it's more jibberish than actual words but most days she is able to clearly articulate what she's thinking about or just sing it out. Actually the latter still impresses me and relieves me. I'm so thankful she doesn't have my crap hearing and tone-deafness. For her age, she can actually sing and hum in key. Yay daddy genes!

ANYWAY, recently she's also showing a new array of emotions. Fear, frustration, playfulness and lately anger. I guess she's really on her way to becoming a three-nager and for my part it's really pushing me out of my comfort zone to have to deal with a drama-princess. She really exaggerates some times! Another new thing she's picked up is crying without tears. YES. She's learnt the art of crocodile tears and so far I seem to be the only one to know the difference (oh, and of course her great grandmother, my grandmother, who's an expert at human behaviour). 

Let's just say my household has gotten very interesting. If it's not broadway musical, it's meltdown city and "whyyy mommy whyyyy" *cue dramatic tears / harrowing screams* *rolls eyes*. Since I'm the only one who can tell the difference, sometimes I just ignore her little drama episodes or nip it in the butt. 

Is it working? No. Never trust a two year old. They're sneaky little things! She's since learnt to up her game and have gone nuclear on me. She thinks I don't know what she's doing but I do. She's trying different methods to see what works for me. Her latest is "Owww, mommy! Painnnnn" *clutches head, legs, stomach, arm* does it work? Heck yes. I get freaked out because I don't know if it's real or not and let's just say she knows I'd rather be safe than sorry. 

So this is life for me. It's damn irritatingly amusing. But credit where credit is due, I'm quite impressed with her improv skills. If only it wasn't so dramatic. Lol! For now, I'm thankful BabyJ hasn't learnt the art of manipulation yet... or has he? He seems to have his grandmother wrapped around his tiny fingers *hmmmm*
