OK, ladies, how are your two-year-olds (and you) handling tantrums?
Emme can go into full blown screaming, crying, meltdown mode in seconds and stay there for 15 minutes or longer. Last night she wouldn't come in the house (we gave her the choice of walking or being carried) for dinner. She had been playing and we had prepped her several times that it was coming, so...I picked her up and carried her inside.
As we walked, she melted. It seemed like forever. She ended up in her room; she slammed the door shut and would open/slam it. We left her to her fit and would check (though who needed to check, the neighbors five acres away could have heard her) every few minutes. She even scratched her foot on the door, paused in the tantrum to have "mommy kiss it and make it feel better" THEN went back to the tantrum. Once she finally snapped out of it, she wanted love, then hopped down and happily joined us at the table. OMG. I was tired and my husband looked like his head was going to pop off.
I have requested Happiest Toddler on the Block from the library because we have to try something. How are you?
