Little Man is almost two, he will be two in a about three months. The first tantrum has reared it's ugly head. And boy was it ugly. If this is any indicator of how the next probably two years will be, boy do we have our work cut out for us. Sweet Girl has had her share of tantrums but it's been a while since we've had THIS kind of tantrum. And of course it had to be in public, no we can't have this type of screaming mess at home. What fun would that be?
It was at our favorite place...Target. And it was all over a bag of popcorn. Little Man wanted out of the cart. Our rule: the popcorn stays in the cart. This was not acceptable to Little Man. So he SCREAMED and SCREAMED (and yes it was loud) and he added a screaming NO in there when we started moving the cart and he couldn't have the corn. Oh he was PISSED. It was actually kind of funny. But only for a few moments.
He had to be removed from the store to the truck while Sweet Girl and I paid for our goods.
When we got back to the truck, Leo couldn't even get him in the seat. I was able to get him in but he was still pretty worked up. We were brave (or stupid, take your pick here) and decided to go out to lunch. Thankfully it turned out pretty good, except for the whole cup of sauce Little Man dumped on Leo's shorts and shoes, and the four forks that ended up on the floor. But both kids ate good and we even enjoyed a trip to Cold Stone.
Ice cream makes everything better. :)
