Happy Blogaversary to Me (and all of you)

Yesterday was the blogaversary 'round these parts.
In light of that I want to thank anyone who's clicked a link, dropped a comment or contributed to the really awesome conversations that have been developing around here in the last year. You ladies and gentlemen have contributed to some truly fascinating discussions that have helped me not only refine my thoughts, but often that challenge my own thinking on this funny little critter we call grindcore.
And as with last year, a look back at the whole idea that got me blogging in the first place.

Two years in, where is Grind and Punishment going? Well, now you can all look forward to my terrible twos.

Characterized by toddlers being negative about most things and often saying 'no', the terrible twos may also find your toddler having frequent mood changes and temper tantrums.

To help you cope with this normal stage in your child's development, you should always remember that your child isn't trying to be defiant or rebellious on purpose. He is just trying to express his growing independence and doesn't have the language skills to easily express his needs. This can also be the reason why your toddler frequently gets frustrated and resorts to hitting, biting, and temper tantrums when he doesn't get his way.

Forget what I said about all that simple joy stuff; this sounds like way more fun.

A right good tantrum never hurt anyone. Cheers, G&P. Web shots on me.
