Why we don't stress too much about Quinn throwing a tempter tantrum...

Nov 30, 2015

Quinn attempted to throw a tantrum over dinner (spaghetti) tonight. He stomped his feet and crossed his arms and made a big pouty face and then dumped his plate over on the table. Then he waited for a reaction. He didn’t get any so he loudly declared he wasn’t eating anything and threw a pinch of sauce on the floor. He didn’t get a reaction again, so he loudly informed us that he had thrown sauce on the floor. Still not getting a reaction he wanted, he marched over to a kitchen counter and threw a dirty washcloth on the floor and stomped on it. That washcloth was his undoing.

I had a hard time not laughing when Aurora told me about school today. But these things are truly hard. I’m so glad that the school has the kids all practice together….

Aurora: I have decided what the worst class is in school!!
Me: Oh?
Aurora: Social skills!
Me: because it’s hard?
Aurora: NO! Because it’s boooooring!!! Today we had to practice [outraged voice] LOOKING IN EACH OTHER’S EYES!
Me: Oh.
Aurora: Tomorrow we have to practice GREETINGS! Uuuuugh!

Kira saw me fixing my coffee and asked for some. I put a tiny bit in a cup and asked if she wanted milk and sugar. K: no! Me: are you sure? Even sugar? K: yucky sugar! Me: ok…. She’s now sitting next to me watching Winnie the Pooh and taking sips of her black coffee. No shudders, just concentration on the movie. 😂

I’m sitting in my room doing stuff while Aurora is practicing her violin. I hear her slowly play a sequence of notes that didn’t seem to make a tune so I start paying attention because I don’t know what she’s up to. The next repeat she’s adjusted her fingers and is counting the note beats better and I can recognize what song she’s trying to play. The third time through is a passable rendition of the beginning of a song she’s never played before today. She’s reading the notes and figuring it out herself. Seriously proud mommy here. ❤️😄
