The mind of a 2 year old is amazing.  I've learned several things from our little one and I would love to hear what other 2 year olds are teaching.  For example I never knew that all insects are bees.  I have also learned that no matter how upset you are or how bad it hurts seeing a construction vehicle makes everything better.  What have you learned?

I learned that whichever spot on the couch is already occupied by an older child is the only acceptable location for other children to want to sit.  And even if they both want to watch the same movie, the 2 yr old will immediately start crying if the older children say the name of the movie, because they consider it to be their personal property.  Oh yeah, and anything you're currently holding in your hands is yours no matter who it might have belonged to previously.

The toddler's creed:

If I want it, it's mine.
If I give it to you and change my mind later, it's mine.
If I can take it away from you, it's mine.
If I had it a little while ago, it's mine.
If it's mine, it will never belong to anybody else, no matter what.
If we are building something together, all the pieces are mine.
If it looks just like mine, it is mine.

 Having kids...(I srarted kinda late...I was 30) was a big eye opener for me. It reawakened the sense of ...I dunno..amzement and apprectiation for ordinary things...like trains" Look! WOW! It must be going a hundred! Why?" or "I like peaches...cuz they taste fuzzy!Do you like peachs,Dad?" It just kinda made me look at the world kinda new again.

Course,now that they're turning into teenagers,they have a sarcastic attitude toeards all the childish things I like...like
" How can you watch that stupid movie AGAIN?(BRIDE of the MONSTER)."
"Cuz I like it. I'ts good."
"No,Dad,it is'nt.It's retarted"
" Are you crazy! LOOK! Bela slapped Lobo right in the yap!HAHAHA!"
"Your an idiot,Dad."
 "Lightin' up! It's fun!"
"No,it's gay."
 "Gay? What? What th'hell does that mean?"

   For some reason,the latest word for anything they dislike is "GAY",whether it is or isn't.
 I wish they were 2 again...back then BotM was cool.Now...It's "GAY". (sigh) Bluesad

Hahaha!

I always find it really funny nowadays when I hear that being bandied around as an insult for just anything.  It just seems so 90s...

Ah well, maybe if you explain to them that the director had a thing for cross-dresssing and Cashmere, then maybe they'd understand...

It never even occured to me...maybe it IS gay! OH NO! My favorite Bela movie of all time...is gay. Bluesad
And I watch it all the time.(?)
Funny...I don't feel gay. Does this mean I can't watch Pam Grier movies no more? Question Bluesad

And the second part to this one:
If it's alive (as in pillbug) and there's more than 1, you can share.

More about food, no matter what the 2 year old is eating candy, ice cream, etc. whatever you're eating, even if it's dirt, is better and they want it.

Running around the house nude screaming "I'm Naked!!" is the world's greatest thrill especially when there is company.

I can verify that Jenna used to do this.  She would strip naked and run through the house.  Then, when I would stop her, she would get a devilish look and coo out, "I'm naaaakkkkkeeeeeddd!" while wiggling her butt.  Try as I might, because I don't want to encourage that sort of behavior, I would often break out laughing.

Dennis, don't you have a small house?  I can't imagine that she would be able to run around without bumping into you...oh, wait...I get it.

Although hes not quite two yet I've learned a lot from my little DarkSider.

1.) If someone has a plate of food, they MUST share even if he will spit it out.
2.) An infant's body is like a cyborg, virtually indestructible. 
3.) Staying still is overrated.
4.) Infants are chick magnets. 
5.) If you don't like something, feel free to chuck it. 
6.) Toys aren't cool. However cell phones, TV remotes and video game controllers are. 
7.) Getting a cheerio stuck in one's ear isn't impossible. 
8.) Getting cranky at the worst times is a prerequisite. 
9.) Doctors are the Antichrist to infants. 
10.) No doesn't always mean "no". 

All these things make him the coolest guy I know.

There really is no satisfactory answer to the question "Why" ... each answer given simply leads to another "Why."  It's an infinite loop.  To Wit:

Why are we stopping?
Because the light is red?
Why?
So other people can go.
Why?
They have been waiting for their turn.
Why?
Because the light was red for them.
Why?

Ad Infinitum.

My daughter is 4-1/2 and my son will be two next month.  What I've really learned is that their capacity to gang up on me is quite advanced.  They can communicate in ways we don't understand - one will distract while the other executes.  It'd be beautiful if I were not always the hapless victim in their master plan (which usually involves eating something or playing with something they are not supposed to).

Really, I've learned that two children are at least about 10x more work than one child.

But I would not trade a minute of it.....

(RC, you started at 30?  That's nothing.  My first was born when I was 36   Smile ).
