This week’s topic is :
The other day I cleaned out my son’s closet. There I found a pair of rubber froggie rain boots that Auntie had bought for him. Unfortunately, since we don’t have a ton of rain here – I forgot about them and he has now out grown them!
So I pulled them out – and gave them to Squish just to play with. (He loves carrying shoes around the house; my crazy little boy!)
Later that day, even though I knew they were too small for him, I decided I would try to get them on anyways! BAD BAD IDEA!
EPICALLY BAD IDEA!
Of course they didn’t fit, but what I didn’t think about was that Squish loves to wear shoes so much he would FLIP OUT when I couldn’t get them on!
This was his first full blown tantrum.
He threw himself on his belly,
He pounded his fists on the carpet,
He kicked his legs as hard as he could,
What did I do??
I laughed so loud my Sister-In-Law came out of her room to see what was up.
Laughing only made Squish even more upset, but seriously he looked ridiculous.
I am an awful Mom, right? Laughing at their child, who does that?!
I had found another pair of Dinosaur rain boots in a size bigger then Squish is currently wearing when I cleaned out his closet. (Great minds think alike – buy them when they are $4 on clearance!)
So I pulled those out, and put them on my son’s feet. He gave me the biggest smile and spent the next 30 minutes walking around in his too big boots…. (read a much slower less crazy Squish!)
So I kinda gave in to his temper tantrum, but it was really my fault. In the future I plan on ignoring them for the most part….
unless we are at the store – then snacks work wonders! (Yes, I am “that” mom!)
