It's tantrum time!

Today was one of those totally out of character days for Bub. Granted she has been sick, and is probably still tired and not feeling great. But seriously, today’s behaviour was something out of a horror movie where the pretty little girl morphs into the devil’s spawn. Okay, a bit of an exaggeration, but you get my point.
First stop was Bunnings to pick up some things for the house. It was crowded, we couldn’t find what we needed and then they had sold out of almost everything we needed. Bub insisted on pushing one of the little children’s trolleys without any help. It was as if she was in some type of bizarre bumper car game where the aim is to hit as many people as possible, whilst running away and going way too fast. Said trolley had to be pried from her little hands, resulting in a loud, throwing herself all over the floor tantrum. 
 Really unhelpful, annoying little bumper car

Next stop was the supermarket. Tantrum number one was about the lolly aisle. Tantrum number two was about whether or not she could open her chocolate milk drink before I had paid for it.
Then we went to the butcher. “Don’t touch the meat”. She pokes her fingers into a packet of meat, making holes in the plastic.
The day didn’t improve when we got home. Crying, screaming, tantrums, NO I DON’T WANT TO, YOU ARE NOT MY FRIEND, kicking, hitting etc….
*Deep breaths* It’s over now, and tomorrow will (or had better) be a better day.
In happier news, the sun has been shining and it’s lovely and warm… it certainly smells like spring! Tomorrow I will post some photos of the lovely flowers in our garden, and the birds that have come to visit. Canberra certainly has an abundance of colourful birdlife!


  1. Sorry she was a devil child today, the joy of children! I've been lucky my nephews have only been sooky no tantrums so far in my presence. Hope tomorrow is much better!

    E :)

  2. Haha this made me laugh so much! I can't wait for my lil girl to get to that age but I'm not sure I'm ready for the tantrums xx
