Now and Later


Now:
"Mama, can I go to the beach with Mikey?"
"No, honey. We're leaving in half an hour."
"NOOOOOOOO! I HAVE TO GO TO THE BEEEEEACH!"
Tantrum, fits, and screaming ensue.

Later:
"Mom, can I go to the beach with Mikey?"
"No. You're not allowed to go to the beach alone with a boy."
"You are the worst mother ever! YOU are ruining my life!!!! You never let me do anything!"
Tantrum, fits, and screaming ensue.

The only difference? Later, she won't want me to hug her while she's having her tantrum.

Sigh.

p.s. Isn't it funny how kids seem to resort to stereotypical movie like statements when faced with this problem? Their rage so stifles their creativity.

I wish I could throw a tantrum sometimes.

Another day in the life of a Mom.

On another note, I'm so impressed with how in tune we are cuz I was just trying to describe how amazing koko rice with some french bread is on a rainy day to Micah. Thanks.

Iris is fitting that second territory now. It sucks. It sucks so much worse than the toddler tantrums
