The Many Names of a Toddler

If you have a toddler, you more than likely call them many names throughout the day in addition to their actual name.  No I'm not implying you're swearing at your toddler all day long, though you may be saying those words in your head.  I'm talking about those devil-child sweet nicknames that almost all terrible two year olds are Also Known As (AKA):
  • Swiper                                  
  • Pick-Pocket
  • Mess Maker
  • Lil Monster
  • Destroyer
    Unless it's just my toddlers??  Well a 16 mos. old toddler and an almost 3 year old (so almost considered a preschooler).  I think at least a hundred ok 5 times a day, I have to go looking for my cell phone.  Only to find it hiding amongst their toys... swiped once again by the masters of sneakiness and the "I-get-what-I want-when-I-want-it" little people. 
    Or when I get up in the morning and my almost 3 year old has gotten up before me and decided to squeeze the toothpaste all over the bathroom wall. The same almost 3 year old then takes her toy drum and uses it as a stool to reach the snack bowl on the counter to eat chocolate for breakfast.  And the 16 month old who screams whenever you take something from her, even if it belongs to you (ahem, my cell phone)!

    Of course, I can't just list all the above AKA's without looking at the flip side of the coin, or should I say the split personality of toddlers (which can change within a split second sometimes).  They can also be (when they want to): 

    • Giggles
    • Cuddle Bug 
    • Love-a-Lot 
    • Sweet Pea 

    • Mommy's Angel 
    As many times as they make me want to rip out my hair or scream my head off, they also melt my heart when I see their sweet smiles.  I love my two crazy kiddos!

    Are you in the 'I have a Terrible 2 yr. old' Club?  What are some of your 'terms of endearment' at this oh so lovely stage?

    oh my gosh, yes! I need that last photo on my coffee cup or something.

    I have a 2.5 year old and life is nothing but cleaning up messes and listening to crying/whining/tantrums.

    Lots of work, lots of love!
