It’s time to be straight up and honest. My darling little Paprika, love of my life, is my biggest annoyance these days. She has hit the “terrible two” phase (she turns two on July 23) and that child can drive me to distraction. It is non-stop “Mom, Mom, Moooom!!” “Mom, look at me at the top of the tree!” “Mom, look at me hang onto this branch with only one paw!” It’s exhausting. Moms, am I right? Of course, I am a tolerant, loving mother and put up with it, but if she tries to snatch one of my grapes, I give her a quick swat with my paw to say, “back off little lady!” This is totally acceptable in Panda Land. Then, we make up and cuddle.
