  1. I never have understood why the floor is the best place for this, lol. It looks like fun on some days though.

    Happy WW!

  2. OMG, I had to laugh, nice tutorial little man! Lyla has this down to a science as well..

  3. I think we need a video of this, as it doesn’t capture all the flailing that I’m guessing was going on. 🙂

  4. That’s pretty hilarious 🙂

  5. great tantrum Baby O!!!!!!! You look like you know “Just what you’re doing” 🙂

    Soooo cute Serenity!!!

  6. OMG-so THAT’s where I am headed? Hey, have you read any good books on toddler disclipline? I am thinking I need to get started.

    He’s still a cutie, though.

    Re:another baby- I can’t imagine having to go to another doctor. And, I am so sorry that you have to even think about it. Blech. When we got pregnant again-which maybe has turned out to be a mistake (i still dont think so) I thought-thank god I don’t have to go to an RE again. It is just so hard.
    But you and J have a great bond-and maybe, maybe, if you can just keep your eye on the prize………..

    Thanks for the blog love BTW.

  7. isn’t it hilarious how they just KNOW the proper position for a tantrum?!?

  8. Christina – It gets better once you learn how to manage it all. Understanding why they’re upset, trying to communicate that to them, etc.

    I recommend two books highly. “Unconditional Parenting” by Alfie Kohn and “Happiest Toddler on the Block” by Harvey Karp. “Unconditional Parenting” is one of those books where you’ll have to discard some of his theories (the school stuff, for example), but it was a great book for me – really resonated for me. And HTOTB has been great in managing the tantrums/emotions and communicating with O BEFORE he escalates into full-blown tantrums. It’s been very helpful.

    And, you know, hugs and stuff. I think of you many times a day and stop and send you good vibes.


  9. Oh man…gotta love the fits!

    Miss O. had the worst ones until she could talk, then it got better.

  10. It seems impossible that such a sweet and angelic looking little boy could throw such such a non-angelic tantrum….LOL….Aw yes.Sure do remember those days!

  11. Oh I know this so well. Happens numerous time over in the SO house.

  12. HA! I love that you documented this.

  13. That looks awfully familiar. 🙂

  14. Hehe! The Chieftain throws himself face down onto the floor or the road or bangs his head against something, all of which are hilarious apart from the last one.
