Does this look like a two year old terror?

I have just lost a battle with a two year old. This picture shows a little bit of spunk, but this afternoon, it wasn't just spunk she was showing. I remember having the same battles with Shanna at this age, couldn't I have learned my lesson then? How hard should it be to put a tired little girl down for a nap? How did my sweet "girlfriend" turn into this little monster who kicks and hits and talks back? I was up most of the night with her legs cramping, so I am not at my best after only getting a few hours of sleep. But, come on! I think of myself as a responsible adult who handles conflict fairly well. Why is it so hard to manage my own daughter??? The really scary thing is that I remember a certain 3 year old's tantrums being worse that a 2 year old's tantrums! Did I mention Kaci turns 3 in about two weeks? I might just start throwing my own tantrums until someone gives me a nap.
