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.

Cute Kira story:
Quinn had allergy shots this morning, so I gave Quinn and Kira tablets to help them sit nicely for the 30 minutes Quinn has to be observed. Quinn got first choice but then decided he didn’t like his choice halfway through the time. Kira wasn’t ready to trade tablets, so Quinn broke down sobbing. While I talked with and comforted him, Kira set down her tablet, picked up Quinn’s and started pulling up Quinn’s favorite apps and offering them to him. She really was dead-on for what he loves. I always forget how observant 2 years old. :)

Quinn and I are spending a lot of the day hanging out at the allergy office doing a rapid allergy shot build up. He’s building with LEGO and getting bribed with chocolate because nobody likes getting 18 shots in the space of a couple hours. He’s rocking it, though, and this will move us 3 months closer to getting him off his asthma meds in a single day (compared to their standard procedure).
