Temper Tantrums - Take 2
My belief was (and correct me if I'm wrong), when we celebrated Mattea's 3rd birthday, I said good bye to those evil two year old tempter tantrums forever. Within 24 hours of turning 3, my sweet Mattea was a changed girl - until now.
What in the heck happened I'm asking myself these days. I don't know if this is some kind of ridiculous phase we are going through but her behavior is nothing short of annoying. I have learned that temper tantrums at 2 are challenging and somewhat frustrating - but at 4 - well those are downright un-lady-like. She has had the most rotten attitude lately and I sincerely believes she thinks that throwing herself to the floor like her sister will somewhat elicit a positive response from me. Thought she would have learned her lesson 2 yeas ago.
Any suggestions out there from you moms to struggle through this stage without throwing myself on the floor with a temper tantrum. Because one of these days, I'm quite sure mommy is going to be the one with the breakdown.
And in case you couldn't tell, I documented one of these events so y'all knew I was telling the truth.
