Living life in the carpool lane..

On the floor…

Posted on: November 21, 2012

Ok.. she did it.

Little M had her first on the floor tantrum.

I don’t know if it really constitutes as a tantrum because it didn’t last long..

You decide.

Usually M has a bottle of milk before going to bed.  The usual routine is that she sits on my lap and we cuddle while she drinks her warm milk.  Sometimes she falls asleep that way, sometimes she just drinks the milk.

Lately, she’s been asserting her independence and wanting to walk around while holding her bottle..

That would be totally fine if she didn’t like to “water” the carpet with her milk bottle leaving little drops of milk all over the carpet.

So, I take the bottle away and tell her that she can only drink the milk if she sits down with Mimi..

Ok.. so that worked out.. or so I thought.

She sat on my lap to drink milk for two minutes when she decided that she wanted to start walking around again.

Trying to reason with her, I told her that she could walk with the bottle as long as she didn’t put milk on the carpet. 

That went well for.. five seconds!

She starts to tip the bottle upside down and I take the bottle from her telling her that I had told her not to do that..

That’s when she screamed at me.. put herself on the floor.. arched her back and threw herself back down.. and cried..

But just for a split second.

Then she got back up.. came me on the couch.. and said, “up.”

She didn’t drink milk after that, but she cuddled on my lap until it was time to go to bed..

Tantrum?  A small release of frustration?  What do you think?

Sounds like she was trying to make a point. Awesome that she cuddled up after!
