Perfect SD and SS.. apparently been this way all their lives!
So last night DH and I were sitting in living room and our BS 14 months was doing what 14 month olds do... investigating, getting into things he should be etc. So at one point, DH tells him "no" to which BS had a 15 second tantrum and then was over it. DH said we have to nip this now with him, which I totally agree with.. I have actually been putting him in his crib if I have to tell him no for the same thing two times in a row and that seems to be working with him.
At any point, I said, yep, totally agree, but all kids go through this stage. DH says "No, SD and SS never did this." I said WHAT???? Give me a freeking break... ALL toddlers have tantrums, I actually just read an article last month that the frontal lobe of their brains that provides reasoning in adults does not even develop until age 4.. which is why ALL toddlers have tantrums.
Whatever, not going to sit and listen to DH tell me how perfect Mr. and Mrs. Precious have been since the second they came out of their BM's nasty wombs. UGH!
But I am happy to admit that I am wrong... ANYONE out there ever have a toddler who didn't have tantrums????
