tantrums...

This morning jr threw a tantrum for almost an hour. What started it all? His mean mommy said it was diaper-change time. So it was a standoff-- a draw-- a battle. Who would bend first? Unfortunately for him, his mommy is even more stubborn than he is. Maybe that's where he gets it from.... hmm...

So we've all heard that the terrible two's are a big tantrum time, and some say that age three is the worst, but if this is the case, why has my son been throwing tantrums almost since the day he was born?? Is he just getting it out of his system? Will he be a perfect angel baby when he hits 18 months? I'm not saying he's a bad kid-- he is just really loud and passionate about getting what he wants and always has been! When he's happy he's really happy, and when he's mad he's really mad. Let's just hope he's over it by the time he's a teenager...

Here's his after-tantrum face. His eyes are so red from crying... poor guy!


Luckily, jr doesn't hold grudges and was back to his charming little self soon after!

What a DRAMA KING! The day will come (hopefully soon) when there are no more diaper changes for Jr! Then everyone will be happier. He'll probably be a very calm teenager.

What most books and people will not tell you is that the terrible twos does not just last for the age of two, but is actually a two year period from the age of 2 till 4. It sounds daunting I know, but you can make it.

Aw! Let's hope #2 is a calm/non-tantrum baby! Junes is still super cute though :)

That boy needs to go to diaper boot camp (you know, where they make the babies change THEIR OWN diapers!)for a few weeks. That'd teach him, the little scamp.
Uh, just kidding Junes, if you're reading this. I'm still your favorite aunt, right?

Awww....such a sad little face, but at least he got over it, and was smiling again.
