I am in Temper Tantrum Land

I have been reading alot of blogs lately about Mom's with little ones who are having some Tantrum issues.
I officially am coming out today to join you.

Some days are better than others. Today seems to be the worst one yet.
Christopher will be 18 months on Saturday. He is the moodiest of my 3 boys.
Today, he is fine for a couple of minutes, then cry for a couple of minutes.
He is not in the mood for snack or beverage. He has already napped once.
He split my upper lip open this morning when the phone rang and scared him. The sippy he was holding, was thrown into my face and busted my lip. It hurts.. yep!

He stomps his feet, crossed his arms, throws toys. Then grabs his blanket and walks like Linus dragging his blanket behind him. (credit: Peanuts)

I allow him to have his tantrum then try to talk to him. He cannot verbalize yet but I can comfort him.

Right now he is face down on the tile floor with his head in his blanket giving intermittent cries. If I look at him, he gets mad.

I feel a pre-cursor to the Terrible Two's!

  2. Of 6 kids, 2 have been tantrum throwers. Unfortunatly at 15 and 8 they can still put on a good show.

    I can still walk away, then make sure nothing gets thrown and no one gets hurt.

    Blessings and Prayers
