Peter and I are on two weeks holiday. Peter and my boss (jack of all trades) have been working building a fence in our backyard since Saturday evening. They have been putting in long hours. Turns out that rocks get in the way of digging deep holes. Here is a photo in the early stages. It is nearly finished now so I'll post some more when I get a chance.

I don't know if it has anything to do with her second birthday or if it's teething or what but Miss A has been unbelievable lately. I have talked about her temper before. I WISH I could go back to those days. I have seen a new kind of fury and it scares me. For Real.

I hate to break it to you, but it might be the second birthday. It will get better though.

A DIY fence? I'm so impressed with your husband's skills! And lots of rocks means free flower bed borders, right?

And yeah, seconding Nikkie's comment about the second birthday. My littlest girl is just coming out of a horrendous screaming tantrum phase, 5 months after her second birthday. Supposedly it's their way of beginning to be independent little people, as if that's any comfort.

Here too. My A has been a different person since that magical 2nd birthday. SOME of it's been nice to see (he's braver!), but then some of it... *sigh*

Yeah... I never got the terrible-twos with the two older; it was a simple matter of going from awful-ones to wretched-twos. It is looking like we may actually experience something of a irritable-twos with Pearl. i will not complain.
