Has your child thrown a temper tantrum in public? Create a video describing what happened and how you handled it.

Did you see last week’s Writer’s Workshop post?

This isn’t a tantrum as much as it’s the first time she “sassed” me. I handled it by getting my camera and video taping her doing it, and it wasn’t public until I posted it on You Tube 😉
Last Monday we went for a walk. It was a really pretty day and Adaline had a great time walking and holding Mommy’s hand.
We got inside the house and put Muppet in his cage (We always do this while putting Adaline to bed since Muppet has a reputation for peeing on our bed skirt when we’re not in the room!). Adaline didn’t want to leave the room. She’s been saying “no” for quite awhile, but that night she started saying, “No! I said no!”. What did I do when my little one defied me?! I got out the video camera to see if she’d say it again so that I could put it on my blog…just like any good mother would do 😉
The Terrible Twos? I don’t know. At just shy of 20 months Adaline has put a new spin on her “no”. She’s been saying it a lot lately. Last week she threw a couple of tantrums too. Those were fun.
Overall she’s still very well behaved and listens really well. She’s just having some “moments”. The “I said no!” thing must come from me, because that’s often what I say to her. We managed to end the evening like this…
Adaline has actually been having a really rough month. She started off with a bad case of the kangaroos. As soon as that cleared up she went right into potty troubles with terrible diaper rash, something that we’re still dealing with (which is another 13 posts or so, if I ever have time to write them!).
Between her not feeling well and her new found ‘tude I haven’t had a lot of free time for blogging (it took me a week to post the video). *Sigh*
If you’ve always wondered what my melodious speaking voice sounds like you’ll want to click here to watch the video of Adaline telling me no. You’ll have to view it on my Facebook page since I’m unable to post videos on the blog.
**Edited to add that I opened a YouTube account so that I can post videos on the blog…so the video is now embedded above for your viewing enjoyment. If you have any difficulties with it you can still watch it on Facebook.
