Talking to my Mommy Network has yielded several different theories:
He’s testing me to make sure I’ll love him no matter what.
He’s frustrated because he lacks the language skills to communicate what he wants.
I’m a terrible parent.
Whatever the cause, I’m just keeping my chin up and, at the same time, protected from his already amazing right hook until he turns three. What’s that? Oh, you say age three is even worse? Awesome.
