December Daily ~ The 20th

The day where one hour lasted a life time and the reciting in my head over and over again of "this too will pass" was absolutely no help at all.
The morning started off well with a walk to collect the newspaper and a visit to Starbucks for a Gingerbread Latte and a Babycino ~ smiley faces on red cups and wellies that fall off DS's feet when he sits down and his feet can't reach the floor.
The nightmare began on the walk home ~ click the middle image below to read the full story.
With hindsight, walking into town and back with a small boy who had been poorly for the last week or so was probably not the best thing to do.  And at the risk of beginning to sound like I'm paraphrasing Scarlett O'Hara, thank goodness tomorrow is another day.

I love the way the pages fold over and feel for you as we are still having the same moments on and off. My phrase is "I'm a leaf on the wind" although it doesn't always help lol. Hope you all have a good Christmas.

Man, what a tough day for you - I am sorry you had that experience, it can be so hard some days! Some days it is hard to believe that these small people in our lives are capable of that type of behaviour .... hopefully a good nights sleep will help you both :-)

Good Evening Sweetie...
Oh my, he is into the tantrum stage. Been there, done that, and am now seeing it in some of the grands. Oh what fun days those were.

Tomorrow is a new day sweet one. Try it again. Don't let this temper tantrum keep you from going out again. It too will pass. He is just at that age.

Many hugs to you sweetie. Many hugs. Much love, Sherry

Don't eveer be embarrassed. He is just expressing his feelings. The fact that he feels safe enough to do that is credit to you.
Stop worrying about it and tell him it's ok cos you still love him even when you don't like the way he behaves, that'll get him thinking

Oh Ruth, I'm so sorry - I've been there too, it's horrible! I hope today is a much better day for you both xx

I'm really feeling for you too - been ther, done that! With a liitle boy who especially hated Habitat, for some reason. If it's any consolation, that same lad is now a charming willing shopping-helper and the cashiers love him!

"Nothing lasts forever" was my mantra at times like that

Sorry about the rough day. My boys have both had those times. This too shall pass was my mantra as well

Oh dear. As everyone has said - we've all been there. Blame the situation (in this case, the virus) not the boy and I find it a bit easier to keep my cool. Imagining myself on TV in 'Supernanny' usually stops me shouting too, if I remember to do that during the tantrum, instead of afterwards!

Oh dear. Hope today was a better day xx
