OH wait! Crap....THATS ME!!!! and my little lady is full of it...
I have to admit I was totally shocked when the first tantrum arrived. I mean honestly who was teaching her this stuff?!? I was certain it was not from me as I am way to cool, calm and collected to be called dramatic. (Ok so maybe the last line wasn't totally the truth but shhhh it can be our little secret!)
As she whithers herself to the floor (as not to hurt herself of course) she will look up and wait for you to look at her...and as soon as your eyes meet hers....BAM she drops her head and the flood gates open. If I didn't know better I would swear she was rehearsing for a new drama series due out on Fox later this fall. I mean honeslty...this is the kind of stuff you just cannot make up.
As I googled ways to survive tantums (since I can't seem to control my laughing thus encouraging her tantrums further) I came across this...Native Remedies Tula Tantrum Tamer Pillules, 20 Grams
You have got to be kidding me!!! Drugs for tantrums?!? As great as this little miracle pill sounds (NOT) I would prefer to use a more traditional parenting technique...you know like a non pharmacutical one. So I am bringing it to you...The Real Life Moms....How do you survive and what are you tips....because as funny as it is now...I am fairly certain in 15 years I probably wont be laughing any more.... :)
