Minor Tantrum Tale

Okay, this is a very minor Georgia tantrum video. This is what I would call one of the calmer reactions I get from her when I tell her "No."

In this particular instance, I was eating my usual breakfast of coffee and a Zone energy bar. I am addicted to those damn things! Well, Georgia saw me eating what looked like a candy bar and came at me like a rabid bear. "WANT IT WANT IT WANT IT WANT IT!"

The last thing she needs is an energy bar. I tried to offer her a bite, but she was not happy with that. I decided to grab the camera and capture her reaction . . .

Oh, you are so much more patient than I ever was. I would have silently and quickly picked her up and placed her in her room. Then I would have closed the door, walked into my room, closed and locked my door, and ignored her until she calmed down.

Can you tell that I've done this in years gone by?

You're nicer than I am I have to admit. I tend to be the harda** of the family anyway. I can't tell you how many tantrums I've cut off by asking "Do you want to go to work with me tonight?" or "After dealing with screaming adults all night, do you really thhink that the screaming is going to affect me?" (Working in a jail is very unique.) I know it's probably not very nice, but it works.

Wow, she reminds me of my daughter when she hears no lately! She'll be two in a week and I can feel it coming, sneaking up slowly...terrible twos!

I love the cameo by Eli!
Can you see me now?

You should do a series of Eli poking up saying "can you see me now"

Love you

I was thinking the same thing as Mo. Little Eli, just checking in to make sure you can see him.
