Charles Dickens wrote in A Tale of Two Cities: “It was the best of times and it was the worst of times...” The same could also be said about the toddler years!

This is a time of discovery, wonder, unbridled joy, excitement about life, and unparalleled cuteness. This is also the time for stupendous tantrums, never-ending messes, demands, epic power struggles, and fits of all kinds. It all comes in the same, small package.
