He’s a big kid! (Well, almost.)
By two, the kiddo can really use his noggin. He’s playing pretend, sorting stuff into categories, and is hip to simple abstract concepts (like “sooner” vs. “later.”). He’s also getting more verbal every day, is sometimes whiny, and may be having a little separation anxiety. He likes to do things for himself and, of course, can throw a doozie of a tantrum. The fun part: He’s big on showing other emotions, too, like love and joy, and is absolutely smitten with his mommy.
[tip] Instead of brushing teeth, let your toddler “paint” his teeth. This makes it way more fun.
