It's all fun and games until you have to look after a toddler

Toddler tales.
Toddler tales.

If you are a parent of a toddler or have taken care of one you probably know that tantrums and supermarket meltdowns can be hard to avoid.

Well it seems having a meaningful Easter weekend while also trying to minimise the chances of your child throwing the next tantrum can also be added to the list of Terrible Twos Tiring Jobs. Grandmother and freelance writer Michelle Martin was shocked after learning the hard way that her grandson was also part of the terrible twos team.

Michelle went on to Huffington Post to retell the tale of an Easter weekend with a toddler.

This is what she had to say.

"I’m not tired because I partied hard or drank too much in the sunshine (I’m teetotal). It’s all due to the youngest member of our family, my live-in grandson, who’s slap bang in the middle of that most dreaded part of any child’s development – the terrible twos.

My otherwise gorgeous grandson can go from ultimate cutie to mischief king and rabble-rouser in 0-60 seconds – and I can barely believe it."
