Oh my God, Amy gets away with quite a lot – poo explosions, sick in the bath while I am in there with her, waking up 12 times in one night – well, you know the game. Today however, she was really testing my patience. She was throwing one temper tantrum after the other whenever I put her in her high chair or play pen and if I say temper tantrum, I really mean temper tantrum – not the usual whinging that you get from a baby every now and then. I am fine with whinging and moaning but today was really exhausting and slightly scary, if I am being honest. Where the hell did that she develop such a temper??? She’s only 9 months old…
Amy usually is a truly relaxed baby and very easy to look after. Today however, she was far away from her happy and smiley self. At first, I thought that she might be teething but after a while it was quite clear that she must have got up on the wrong side of the cot because whenever daddy held her, he was getting smiles and giggles all around – little monkey.
I have taken a little video of her and I will definitely keep it to show her when she is older – always nice to have material for an 18th birthday, isn’t it? For a moment, I was tempted to upload it but Ben talked sense into me. He thinks Amy might get us drunk when we are old and can’t handle our drink any more and make a little home video a la David Hasslehoff. Scary thought, scary thought!
Does your little one throw temper tantrums and how do you deal with them?
