My daughter was sick with a virus all of last week. She will be 2 on April 27th. She was catered to and babied most of the time, considering she was so congested she had trouble sleeping (couldn't breath when laying down) and ran a fever for 3 days. She is better now, but we took her pacifier away for the duration of the cold mainly because she wanted nothing to do with it. I thought, great, we can finally get rid of it and it won't be so bad. But, it has been horrible. I don't know if it is because of the lacking pacy or what. She is very demanding, wants CONSTANT attention and refuses everything. It has been 4 days of this and I really don't know what to do anymore. I am at work now and my mom is taking care of her and dealing with the same thing. Is this the terrible twos? Or just a phase that will pass soon? How do you handle it, moms? Sometimes, I really question the logic of having a kid!! I mean, honestly, we have 75% of our day spent throwing a fit and/or screaming!
