I laugh every time I look at this picture. And it's lucky that I can even laugh because this past month with Anthony has been torture. I am not even sure when it happened, but suddenly this little boy started being so bad. He cries all day and he cries all night! It's also not just a normal cry either, there is yelling, screaming and throwing of whatever he happens to be holding. Now you know I had 5 children, and I really don't think we ever went through this with my girls and I know we didn't go through this with Anthony's older brother and sister. That's why it didn't even hit me that it could be the terrible twos, I thought he was in pain and kept telling his mom to go get him checked out. I thought it was his teeth or his ears. It has been so bad that I thought he was suffering, and it wasn't until I mentioned it to someone that they told me it was the TERRIBLE TWOS!
Well oh boy, I don't like these terrible twos at all. Having never gone through this I don't even know how long we have to live like this. Does it ever end? Will I have to throw myself in front of a moving train? Or can I throw him? Just kidding!
I miss my happy boy who was constantly laughing and playing ninja, or running around and shooting at us with his guitar while we weren't looking. But I get that he's going through a phase and though it's difficult we have to smile through the pain and get through it. Hopefully this passes fast and we can have our happy little man back.
The only thing we don't have to worry about when it comes to Anthony is wet diapers. We are still using Huggies Snug & Dry Diapers with New SureFit Design (these provide up to 12 hours of leak protection) and Huggies Natural Care Wipes with New Triple Clean Layers (gentle for babies skin but strong enough to clean up the biggest messes), which are a great team when it comes to keeping even the most active of boys fresh and dry. The unique flexible waistband and gap-free fit can keep up with him on the most active of days. Next time you are doing a diaper run, keep these in mind!
Speaking of active baby boys, you have to watch Zuleyka Riveras new parenting webisode. Zuleyka is a Huggies ambassador just like I am and she is sharing a monthly webisode with us, which you can watch on the Huggies Latino Facebook page. Her baby Sebastian is into a very active stage and doing plenty of exercise in his Huggies! Feel free to comment on the video :)

I would love some tips on how to handle the terrible, terrible twos! If you know anything that works to make this stage of childhood easier, please share! I would be so thankful!
