The Terribleness of Two is Apparently in the Eye of the Beholder

Daycare teacher 1, a few weeks ago:

“Toby’s being very aggressive with the other kids. He’s doing a lot of pushing, and he’s shouting at the teachers. He’s screaming ‘No!’ at everything, and refusing to do anything we ask him, shouting “I cannot!” It’s been extremely difficult, and we’re trying to work out a system to help him to change his behavior.”

Daycare teacher 2, a couple of days ago:

“Toby had a great day today! He played really hard outside today. He’s doing this thing now that’s so funny. He yells ‘no’ all the time and has this thing where he goes ‘I cannot!’ It’s so cute.”

I guess that means we’ll just keep doing what we’re doing.
