Sprout’s SW just asked me when his last tantrum was. I had no idea. I usually answer in the form of hours (a couple hours ago, 24 hours, 48 hours), but this time I couldn’t remember. We were both speechless. I pulled out the behavior journal to check and there it was…last tantrum recorded on Super.bowl Sunday (mmm hmm. yup, I remember it. it was especially bad…and all I wanted to do was enjoy my wings).
But wait, that was February 7th. Nearly a month ago.
He’s definitely getting an extra hug tonight. And when he whines about brushing his teeth or clearing his plate from the table, I’m just going to smile. That child is amazing, and I need to make a point of peeking out of the trenches more often to recognize it.
