never be...well, today I was that mama.
all hell broke loose in my little 13 month old.
The battle began over a jar of puffs. He wanted to hold the full jar all by himself and eat, however, I knew that would result in a huge mess so I refused. I offered him a few pieces at a time, and that started a screaming fit. I quickly handed him his sippy and binky in hopes that one would pacify him. It did for a minute then the tantrum started again....
I then decided to let him out of the stroller. Walking around entertained him for a minute, but then he decided to break down on the floor again. I picked him up, we looked out the window, we looked at a magazine...all is good....
Then I hand him a toy. He plays, then drops it. A nice lady picks it up and hands it to him...this in turn starts THE GAME. You know what game I am talking about. After about 4 times of him dropping it, I sit him on the floor to pick it up. He then decides to pick up the toy, scream, and THROW IT AT THE NICE LADY. I about died when it smacked into her leg. I quickly appologized, picked him up, took the toy, and told him "That was not nice". Guess what happened then.....TANTRUM in my arms.
Well, I went into the bathroom to provide my urine sample and took Caleb with me. We all know how akward it is to pee in a cup, but try peeing while trying to push a 13 month olds hands at the same time. He was literally reaching between my legs mid pee trying to grab the cup. After I peed I proceeded to wash my hands while kicking my leg in front of the toilet to keep him from putting his hands in the water.....TANTRUM. How dare I keep his hands clean.
When the took my blood pressure he was calm, and waiting on the doctor he was calm. I thought the worst was behind us. I thought wrong.
God forbid we try to hear bundles heart beat. Caleb was screaming wanting me to pick him up while I sat on the table. The doctor and I had to listen so close to hear the heartbeat, but all is great with bundle.
As soon as we left the doctor...PERFECT ANGEL.
I guess we all have to be THAT MAMA some days.
