No rhyme or reason, just full on screaming and crying for a significant amount of time. (By significant I mean 15 minutes or more because 15 minutes of screaming can be an unbearable amount of time.)
E just had a wild tantrum, probably the worst I've seen so far. Screaming, crying, throwing himself down, slamming things... just a meltdown of epic proportions. I asked him if he was hungry, thirsty, or tired and he said no to all. I asked if he wanted to watch Paw Patrol, do a puzzle, read a book, or play with his cars, again no.
He eventually went into his room and slammed the door, but because the door handle is so high he couldn't get back out which prompted even more screaming. I opened the door for him after about five minutes and he slammed it shut in my face, and then screamed again because he couldn't get out. I went and sat down in the living room to see if the screaming would subside, maybe he would fall asleep or get distracted, but somehow he ended up getting out of the bedroom. (I'm guessing he pulled something over to the door to stand on.)
He came out and I figured out the root of the problem. He saw his nummers (pacifier) but since we are trying to break him of it during the day it's put up where he can't reach it (and where I thought he couldn't see it.) If he had've just said "nummers" in the first place I would have explained our big boy story and redirected him to something else like the special treats and snacks I bought just for this particular issue. But alas, he is only two and communication isn't their strong suit.
One step at a time.
Toddlers are hard.

He was tossing everything in the air and it was pure mayhem over here. Well at one point he managed to take off his sock, and in going with the theme, tossed it into the air. I wasn't paying too much attention to where everything was landing, I figured I would just clean it all up when he went down for his nap. Well, right before nap time I wanted to put his sock back on because his little toes were getting pretty cold. Could not find the sock, anywhere.
After 30 minutes of searching every room in the house, I sat down defeated and went to take a drink of my juice, and then I saw it. This tiny little, used to be white, sock floating in my cup of juice. The sock is now a slight purple/red colour so I figure, throw some bleach and hot water in a cup and soak it, it'll be fine! HAH! I went to check the sock an hour or so later, super white, GREAT! Not so great? The green stripes around the ankle are now a very pretty yellow, well crap, guess I better throw the opposite sock in to make it the same colour. Makes sense right? Probably should've taken the first sock out because now I have one with nice yellow stripes and one with light lime green stripes. In retrospect, probably should've just tossed the pair as Hubby suggested but I'll just hope no one looks close enough to notice.
Should also mention while all of this was going on the toddler fell off the kitchen chair with his Spiderman toy and bumped his head on the floor. Don't worry he's fine, his main concern? If Spiderman was O.K. because his bendable arm was pointing straight up instead of straight out.
Toddlers... *shaking my head*

Why? Why will you not let your kid live and learn on his/her own?
All of these parents that were born in the late 70's/early 80's are pushovers. Bubble wrapping their kids from harm and letting them run the household. Gluten free this, vegan that. Wash yourself in purell every five minutes. Don't vaccinate and god forbid you let your child bump their head without a trip to the hospital for an x-ray.
When I was a kid in the 90's we drank from the hose, swung upside-down unsupervised (THE HORROR!) on the jungle gym, swung as high as possible on the swings and then lept off to see who could jump further, and I'm pretty sure most of us ate a little dirt by accident. We're all still alive and most of us turned out ok. (I said most!)
I'm hoping everyday that the people I grew up with, mostly those born from '87-'95 are going to do much better job at regular parenting than some of the previous generation that are really not even parenting. Letting their kids run the house, run their lives and drive the rest of us crazy. Little entitled a**holes that have never been told no by their parents and think they deserve everything on a silver platter because they are special.
You're special alright kid, a little special snowflake just like everyone else. 😜
Ps. Don't even get me started on the 'safe place' rooms in colleges for people who were so sheltered that their fragile egos are damaged by the wrong word.

So, my short funny story for today is about our trip to the doctors for the Babes two month shots.
The doctor checked his length, his weights, his junk and then went to get the needles ready. While she doing that I gave the little Babe some Advil for the upcoming pain. (He is never going to trust the taste of grapes again :p) About two seconds into the first shot the screaming began, the poor little Babe. Then his second one in the other leg. A couple minutes after the second one the screaming subsided and I cleaned the blood spots and stuck the band-aids on. While I was getting him dressed the doctor realized that Momma was a year behind on her boosters... uh oh. Daddy says he'll take over dressing him and that I should get my booster. *Sigh* Ok. She goes and gets my needle and comes back. I make the ridiculous mistake of looking at the needle first and panicking a little. (Which is ridiculous because I dealt with so many needles taking blood while I was pregnant.) I look away and watch the Fiance dress the babe while she wipes my arm and before I could say warn me the needle was in and out. Everything seemed fine, she warned me my arm would be sore for a couple days but I told her I felt fine and had no pain. Just you wait. I woke up the next morning and I couldn't even touch my arm it was so hard and painful. Five days later my arm finally feels normal but it still has some pain when I lay on it. I suppose that's to be expected when they make you wait ten years between shots. You're body doesn't like change and that damned booster shot proves it.
Oh well, at least I'm protected against tetanus... and whatever the two other ones are in that 3 for 1.
