We’re in a bad phase. A pushing boundaries, we’re not quite sure how to handle things so let’s cry phase. These come and go, and each time we come out the other side better for it, with new communication skills, more patience and an enhanced ability to reason. But going through them just plain sucks, any way you slice it.
So, here are the reasons my children tantrumed today, starting from 8 a.m. when they woke up. (At the time of this post, it’s only 9:30 a.m.)
1) I didn’t stay in bed until both children could come up and lay with me in bed. First Natalina cried about this in outrage for her sister. Then Dulce came upstairs and cried for herself.
2) They both cried when I dared to go to the bathroom and asked them to shut the door (either with them in the bathroom with me or outside.)
