I don't know if that word translates to you lot over there LOL but I mean throwing fits
Tobey is into full dramatic fit throwing now and I can't help but laugh at him. For a while he did just cry when I said "no", but he's over that now Now I have to tell him off, move him away, take stuff out his mouth etc and he sits (throws) himself on the floor, bends himself in half and crys banging his fists on the floor. DS1 just used to scream so this is new to me!
What do your LO's do?

Ronin sits and cries, but day care was telling me he did a get down on the floor and cry tantrum, but instead of throwing himself down dramatically like all the other kids, he carefully lowered himself down and then chucked the tantrum. They couldn't help but laugh.
I feel for them, they have 6 kids who are at the full blown tantrum all the time stage (all are about to transition to the toddler room in the next couple of months) 2 who are getting to that stage and a couple of itty bitties (like 5 months old).
Tantrum totally translates over here!! Evan will lay on the floor and be totally still, face in the carpet and cry. Or if I try to pick him up, he turns into a limp noodle and I can hardly get him up. Right now it's still at the funny stage.
Wendy, I bet that is funny to watch him lay down carefully and then throw the fit.
He'll arch his back and throw himself on his side fake crying. His tantrums in the car involve his attempting to bang his head against his seat or throw toys across the car. I ignore them unless he has the potential to hurt himself.
Odin will have a meltdown but I can see the tantrums coming soon. Totally over things like taking away dangerous items or telling him that the power cord is indeed off limits still.
I still cringe thinking of ones that DS1 used to throw. I guess he still does but they are much more savvy with a little less on the floor action...lol.
