Toddler Tantrums

I've heard a lot about toddler tantrums in the past, you know the "terrible twos" and thought it can't be that bad and I was sure that most of it was just people exaggerating. That however was until I experienced my first proper tantrum!

I don't even know what started Thomas's tantrum he had woken up and I think he just decided to be in a mad mood and started to cry so I tried to pick him up but he didn't want his mummy so he pushed himself off my knee and turned his tantrum up a notch and started to scream. When I realised I couldn't comfort him because he didn't want to know I just put him on the floor where he continued to scream and started thrashing around so I moved anything he could hurt himself on out of the way and put cushions in front of the mantle so he couldn't hit himself on it.

After a couple of minutes I tried to comfort Thomas again which was not what he wanted and he started to hit me to try and get away from me so back on the floor he went and I sat near him on the floor and I just kept saying to him in a soft voice that I was ready for a cuddle when he had finished and I think me being nice to him just annoyed him more as that's when he started to throw anything he could find whilst rolling around on the floor and he scream had gone from a high pitched scream to a dry throat-ed noise.

After about 10 minutes it was like something left his body and he started to calm down and finally let me give him a cuddle and then decided he would eat his tea that I had made him after all. So I put him in his high chair and fed him a couple of spoons of his tea and then left him to it and then this was the face I got.

Thomas had completely forgotten about the mini breakdown and was completely full of cuteness and was back to being my best friend again.

If that was what the terrible twos are going to be like..... give me my baby back....I mean bring it on!
