How quickly we forget

I am babysitting today for some friends; their daughter is two. In 4 short years I have forgotten what two looks like.

Two is needing help up and down, up and down, up and down the stairs.

Two is drawing on pink paper with a pink pencil.

Two is pee pee on the potty. No, I already went.

Two is, I want to help!, but can't reach.

Two is I want to walk, but walking very slow.

Two is- Mommy needs a nap! (Or a glass of wine. Any guesses on which might come first?)

I have tried to forget the "Twos" for a long time, but they always come back to haunt me in my dreams !!!!

I can't wait for 2. We're not even at 1 yet (although she seems to have stairs down just fine).

BpDad-I was ok with the stair thing too until my 13 month old went head first down some. He was fine but it ruined me for kids under 4 and stairs.
