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. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
2. Angry because he was served cereal instead of toast ๐Ÿ˜ณ
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. ๐Ÿ˜‘
4. Angry because I wouldn’t let him put his toy cars into his cereal and eventually had to take them away. ๐Ÿ˜’
5. Angry because he was told not to climb on the ledge repeatedly ๐Ÿ˜•
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 ๐Ÿ™„
7. Angry because he was done with his milk and I had to wash the cup ๐Ÿ˜‘
8. Angry because his stool wouldn’t go in the proper position he wanted it to (I then intervened and helped) ๐Ÿ™
9. Angry because I wouldn’t let him climb on the table ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ
10. Angry because it’s nap time and he doesn’t want to nap ๐Ÿ˜
11. Angry because I wouldn’t let him play with his toys in bed so that he could calm down and sleep ๐Ÿ˜‘
12. Angry because it’s past nap time and now he’s angry he’s tired. ๐Ÿ˜ค
13. Angry because I tucked him in ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
14. Angry because I gave him his stuffed animal to cuddle ๐Ÿ˜ซ
15. Angry because thanks to his earlier tantrum, his blanket was no longer tucked in at the bottom of his bed ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

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

Oh? ๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—

Kids, I tell ya.

Xoxo.
