The Trouble with Lulu
Lulu has been having a difficult time recently, behavior-wise. She wants what she wants when she wants it and she melts down if she doesn't get it. This is making Husbandguy crazy because if he's home, what she wants is Daddy, but that doesn't mean she's going to do what Daddy wants her to do. So I looked in my book that Moomie gave me (Ilg, Frances L. M.D., et al. Child Behavior: The classic child care manual from the Gesell Institute of Human Development. New York, NY. Harper Perennial, 1981.), and it turns out that Lulu is actually two-and-a-half. Here we were thinking she is 20 months old. Apparently we were wrong, though.
