My daughter is currently in the midst of the terrible twos.

If you even look at her crooked she has a complete emotional breakdown.

One day recently she cried because I put her shoes on and then cried when I took them back off again. She’s a complex woman.

Now gonna lie there’s been a lot of Percy Pig bribery involved.

The Peppa Pig ended one was all a bit too relatable for me. Seriously what is the fascination with that pig, she’s so bold?

Wanting to wear clothes that are in the laundry is another one I come up against especially when it’s her favourite pink and purple dress.
