~ Dog With No Legs ~

I got to see my wonderful longtime friend Eleny this past weekend.  She brought her two beautiful boys….twin two year olds, Zack and Vincent.

All women reading this now groan a collective “eeeesh!”

Is she tired?  Heck yes.  Is she up to the challenge?  Heck yes.  Does she want a break?  HELL YES.

Her boys are really sweet, even during their mandatory 2-year-old-bucking-the-system-“No”-ness.  I watched her handle them with a combination of empathy and humor.  My kids are only 18 months apart, and they nearly killed me at that age.  I can only imagine her own frustration and fatigue.

But watching her orchestrate their day made me think of an old joke:

What do you call a dog with no legs?

It doesn’t matter, they won’t come anyways.

Ba dum bum.

So there is my new analogy for 2 year olds.  They are like dogs with no legs.

I don’t know why more people don’t come to me for parenting advice.
