Why are two year old girls so frightening? Is it normal to feel so defeated? I have no upper hand, none. Do you remember the hand episode of Seinfeld? “We all want the hand. Hand is tough to get. You gotta get the hand from the opening,” said Jerry. Well I’ve never had it and I’m scared I never will.
I fear car rides, supermarkets, eating out, eating in. She once told me to dance and then cried because I didn’t do it with enough gusto. And I tried. I really tried.
“The shop’s closed” “The toy’s broken” and “Tomorrow” don’t wash with this kid. I can’t even make idle threats. I told my children I was calling the orphanage and she was right there behind me saying “Ring the man mummy”. And she would go. She would pack her own bags and go.
My daughter has so much hand she’s coming out of her gloves.
