comment How to get toddler to eat eggs?
There's plenty of other things he won't eat, I'm just singling out eggs for sake of discussion and so it's not just a duplicate of the many picky eater questions already asked. If I can understand why he refuses eggs and solve that, we can use that to figure out other foods.

We usually do scrambled, today we tried sunnyside up, but he refused to even take a bite. But he did tell me it's not the taste but rather how it feels in his mouth that he doesn't like. So we'll keep experimenting.

Ironically that's one of his favorite stories.

Breastfeeding accessories, formula, and milk have been the largest money sinks for us as well.

comment How to handle a defiant 2-year old when he takes something he shouldn't?
All good points, we've started letting him get his own silverware. We've worried about him getting stuff out of drawers and getting hurt, but he already gets into them a lot, so we're treating it as a learning opportunity. Mama directed him to get his own fork this morning, and I think he really liked being able to be self sufficient on that.

comment At what age does a toddler stop being a toddler?
I've always assumed they were a toddler until they were beyond diapers or at least potty trained. Isn't that a pre-req for pre-school to begin with?

Yes, the 1-2-3 count works well for most misbehaviors but for this taken item problem it ends up working more like a launch countdown. :-) But +1 on the advice to stay calm, that seems important.
