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.

Kira is dreaming of summer. She also won’t let me change her or of her brand new bathing suit. :)

Add this to the list of things I should know by now:

When your 6 year old comes to you and says, “Mommy, I lost a coin down the sink drain but I took it all apart, found my coin, and put it back together and it doesn’t spill water now!” you should definitely, absolutely, totally go check the child’s plumbing job rather than saying, “Wow! I’m impressed that you took care of that yourself.” and going on with your morning. I didn’t think to check it until Kira was in the bathroom 2 hours later and it was definitely pouring water. *facepalm*

The time change is mean.

Earlier today I yelled at Kira as she dumped water on the floor. She frowned at me, crossed her arms, and said, “mommy bein’ mean!” I was equal parts annoyed at being called out on that and impressed that she could even recognize that. I did apologize, though my annoyance at her still tripped me up, and the we cleaned it up together (ok, Kira “helped” by trying to use a colored paper to sop it up…lol).
