When a 2 Year Old Doesn't Get His Way...



Please don't judge me for taking pictures of my child throwing a tantrum - really, I'm sympathetic to the fact that he's genuinely mad that I won't let him have a cracker even though he barely touched his dinner that HE had chosen....but I figure, you either get mad or it's funny and I always choose sense of humor! :)

oh YES, definitely go with the humor approach, and why is it even FUNNIER when it's not your own kid!?! Reid looks adorable with his face plastered to the ground in complete hysterics over a cracker! Oh how I know this is right around the corner ... back arching is slowly showing itself more and more, and I am DREADING it!

That cannot be my sweet Reid! I don't even recognize him! :) Makes us ALL feel like we're not the only ones! Ha!

That must be Reid's twin who came out! He is so cute even while throwing a tantrum!
