It seems as though entering the “Terrible 2s” means more than temper tantrums and melt-downs. All of the sudden, the Little Lady’s mantra is “BY MYSELF!!!” Heaven forbid Mommy or Daddy attempt to do anything for her (although, we are still allowed to hold her; in fact . . . it is EXPECTED!).
Dressing herself is one of her daily activities and goals. Poor thing — she can put a pair of shoes on (albeit on the wrong feet) and she put on her pants/shorts (though, they are usually inside out and backwards). The ability to put on a shirt, however, alludes her.
She tries and tries and tries, but the result is always the same
She tries putting shirts on over her head . . . but her arms never seem to end up in the right places.
She tries putting them on by stepping into them . . . but a shirt will only go up so far when your legs are in the arm holes.
Eventually, when she finally realizes that her attempts only end with incapacitation, does she turn to Mommy or Daddy for help.
I guess we are still good for something.
