Foreshadowing

Please tell me this is not a sign of things to come. Eli loves to open cabinet doors when we're in the kitchen; however, locked cabinet doors do not make him happy. He saw me open the doors under the sink-the ones that house all the cleaning supplies-and he ran to the doors so he could investigate. I was slightly faster than him, grabbed what I needed, shut the doors, and tightened the zip ties so he wouldn't be able to open the doors. Here's how he reacted...can you say temper tantrum??




P.S. Just a note to clarify any misconceptions you may have about why my child seems to always have a messy face at night. He eats his supper and then usually goes straight to the tub very soon afterwards. I don't see the point in wiping his face when he's just going to get cleaned in the tub anyway, especially since he hates having his face cleaned. Just one less battle I'd rather not fight. Oh, and he does wear bibs, but somehow he still manages to get food everywhere!

Girl, I am dealing with the same thing right now. SM looked at me the other day, after I told her no, and she SCREAMED at me. You better believe I popped her hiney and I told her she was not going to scream at her mommy. Then she cried and I felt bad. But we are dealing with some tantrums right now and it is not fun. She does not like boundaries at all.

That is one angry little face haha. Growing up my cousin threw the biggest fits, to the point where my grandparents video taped him and swore they'd show it to his future wife. The worst part was that he bit you if you walked paste him during one. Boys always throw the best fits haha.
