This Is What Happened When Snooki Asked Her Son For A Kiss

We'll give you a hint: Nicole Polizzi's boy is going through the terrible twos, so...

They don't call them the terrible twos for nothing, and Nicole Polizzi is dealing with the very normal -- but sometimes very challenging -- child development stage with her son Lorenzo.

The "Snooki & JWOWW" star, who's gearing up for the arrival of baby No. 2, shared her boy's latest temper tantrum in an Instagram selfie video below (with the appropriate caption "Lord save me. #terribletwos").

"Terrible twos," she declares as her little man, who turns the big 0-2 on Aug. 26, repeatedly hits her arm. He shows his defiance by squealing "No!" but when she asks for a kiss, all bets are off -- and he whacks her across the face. And though Nicole says his name sternly, the cutie pie can't help but grin at the camera. But you've been a bad boy, Lorenzo!

All mamas and papas have been through this phase before, Nicole -- just keep asking for smooches and, pretty soon, he'll oblige.
