Well normally she lays down for a nap without a problem, but today when I came back from laying Brielle down I couldn't find Raya. After some looking I found her hiding under the dining room table
When I found her I tried to get her to come out and she gave me "the hand"
|Please excuse the photo quality of all these pictures---my camera settings are all messed up and I haven't|
had time to fix them haha
But then when she realizes that this "tantrum" game *will* be ending in a nap, she gets mad again haha
She gives being sweet and funny one last shot....
And then Mama's "stern voice" comes out and Raya starts her fake crying
Then it's time for her signature tantrum move----hitting the air and making the "uh! Uh! UH!" noise with every swat :-P
And then the big finale---the thing that ends every tantrum because we send her to timeout lol. .....throwing toys! I don't mind her fake crying, hitting the air, etc....but when she throws a toy it's all over for her and she knows it. Here is the look she gives us immediately after throwing the toy---it's the look that says "yeah, I did it....whatcha gonna do about it?"
So there you have it. She's cute and lovable (most of the time) but 2 year olds and tantrums are like PB & J....they just go hand in hand!
|I blame evolution for her big brown eyes. Certainly those things saved toddlers in the caveman days from being fed to the lions by their worn out mothers! ;-)|
