It's just been in the last few weeks, but Angelo has really started to test us! Up until now there have been the occational throw yourself on the floor tantrums. And well, we've just ignored them and they don't last long. But last night....oh my, we were in for something special!
It started with throwing books. And not just throwing them. I mean heaving them all over the room while yelling jibberish. When we began to scold him well, he started to hit us!
First he pointed his finger right back at us and said, no, no, no! (And I actually had to smile at that one because it was kind of cute.) But then he started to say NO and hit at our faces!
Of course we both have totally different ways of handling naughtyness. Mike is much more calm, and I freak out! After we put him in bed we discussed our tactics, in not a very love dare, friendly, loving way. Finally we calmed down and decided neither of our ways were correct.
So, I'm asking all of you experienced mothers --- any suggestions?
