The Ultimate Tantrum

Natalie is generally a fantastic kid. She is kind, loving, respectful, well mannered… the list goes on and on. Which is why her occasional outbursts always take me completely off guard.

Tonight she had, what I believe, was her worst tantrum ever! Here’s how it went down. After several warnings about being careful with silly putty (oh how I HATE that crap) I noticed she was sporting a large blob of flourescent silly putty, it was ground in and melted to the fabric of her t-shirt, under her arm to be exact. Well that was it! I told her to hand over the silly putty, it was going in the garbage.

Um, to say she went off, would be an understatement. She screamed, she cried, she begged she pleaded and she threatened. (she swore she was never coming out of her room again!) I actually went around and closed windows, I was afraid the neighbours would call the cops, she was that loud. She did eventually calm down, but oh my was she ever mad!

She’s in bed now, and I’m sure she’ll mention it tomorrow, hopefully there will be no more tears!
