What's worse than a two year old's tantrum?
A two year old's tantrum at 2am!!
Yep, we've had a couple of those lately. Including one last night.
Who knows what they're about, because as you would know if you've lived through one, they are highly irrational.
All I know is that all she wanted to do at 2am was throw her bottle in the kitchen sink.
Ah ha, you heard. Throw it in the sink. Then she wanted me to get it out, only so she could throw it back in.
All of this accompanied by the usual crying, screaming and throwing herself on the floor.
The kitchen by the way is right beside the five year old's bedroom so I was most concerned she would wake her brother.
Let's just say I don't have a lot of patience at 2am.
So my attemps at calmly soothing her back to bed ended with the third bottle toss.
Thankfully the five year old didn't wake up, but her dad did.
And what does he do?
Quitely, calmly says, "What's wrong bubby?"
Then what does she do?
Promptly holds her arms up to him for a cuddle, starts sucking her bottle and goes back to bed, in our bed.
How do I feel?
