Reasons to have tantrums. Part 1.

  • Because you don’t want to clean your teeth.
  • Because you don’t want to stop cleaning your teeth.
  • Because Mummy won’t let you eat toothpaste for breakfast.
  • Because you are bored of the whole tooth brushing debacle. (That one was mine)
  • Because you are not allowed to eat the hairbrush.
  • Because you want your shoes put on.
  • Because you want your shoes taken off.
  • Because shoes exist.
  • Because Mummy banged her head against the wall.
  • Because you are not allowed to fall off the back of the sofa.
  • Because you are not a duck.
  • Because the duck you chased flew away.
  • Because the duck looked at you in a funny way.
Because you are small, and the world is a big and baffling place,
Thank goodness the smiles still far outweigh the tears,

Love Miss Mummy Cisco XXX

    What’s great is that this is only part 1. We have the same problem with pigeons…why don’t they just do what you want them to do πŸ™‚

    My son is doing this at the moment. I thought he would have been over it by 3 and a half, but no, a broken babybel is a disaster, his biscuit not fitting into his cup of tea widthways (will fit length ways) and its the end of the world

    All very logical at 20 months. Funny to read with toddler years a distant memory, though not so funny to experience it I’m sure. My tween throws a good tantrum too.

    I nearly wrote this post a couple of weeks back ;o) It included ‘because I have been given the food that I asked for and not the food I was thinking about in my head’ and ‘because all episodes of Batman do not contain Blue Beetle.’ I love toddler logic πŸ™‚

    Cian who has in all fairness been pretty perfect to this point is nearly 3 and seems to be making the most of his last few weeks as a terrible two! Xx
