Quoting *PeanutButter*:" My son will be 2 years old on the 17th and lately anything he does he has to do it himself Get dressed,put ... [snip!] ... independent but damn He's also just learning to talk,he knows about 10 words so he can't really tell me what's bothering him"
My 25 month old is doing the same, exact thing.
I think it's amazing when she actually succeeds and she gets so excited for herself, but damn..she always seems to be wanting to do things on her own at the most inconvenient time. Seriously. And if I help.. it's game over. But sometimes I have to and she'll cry..cry..and throw a tantrum..and cry some more. She acts like I lost her favorite doll.
And she can talk in sentences and she'll tell me what's bothering her.. but smurf, it doesn't make it any easier. Seriously.
