The Great 6-Hour Tantrum of September

The start of September 2017 shall forever be known as the emergence of the Great 6-Hour Tantrum of September, when Savya literally lost his shit about everything until he fell asleep well past his naptime. I nearly lost my mind, and had no respite because my husband was in Amsterdam for a 3-day work trip, and my in-laws were out all day. Oh, the joy!

Savya’s tantrums were logged as the following:

1. Angry because I didn’t open the gate to go downstairs quickly enough. πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ
2. Angry because he was served cereal instead of toast 😳
3. Angry because I said “fine don’t eat, but I’m going to eat breakfast with or without you.” This did not sit well with him. πŸ˜‘
4. Angry because I wouldn’t let him put his toy cars into his cereal and eventually had to take them away. πŸ˜’
5. Angry because he was told not to climb on the ledge repeatedly πŸ˜•
6. Angry because he fell down after climbing up on it for the fifteenth time and was greeted with no sympathy when searching for it πŸ™„
7. Angry because he was done with his milk and I had to wash the cup πŸ˜‘
8. Angry because his stool wouldn’t go in the proper position he wanted it to (I then intervened and helped) πŸ™
9. Angry because I wouldn’t let him climb on the table 😟
10. Angry because it’s nap time and he doesn’t want to nap 😐
11. Angry because I wouldn’t let him play with his toys in bed so that he could calm down and sleep πŸ˜‘
12. Angry because it’s past nap time and now he’s angry he’s tired. 😀
13. Angry because I tucked him in 😩
14. Angry because I gave him his stuffed animal to cuddle 😫
15. Angry because thanks to his earlier tantrum, his blanket was no longer tucked in at the bottom of his bed πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

Tucked in the blanket and was told “thank you!”

Oh? πŸ˜—πŸ˜—πŸ˜—

Kids, I tell ya.
