The Art of the Tantrum

There is an art to the toddler tantrum.

The balletic arch,

The operatic wail,

The dramatic flail,

A performance that draws spectators near.

What’s a mother to do but stare in awe

At the art of the toddler tantrum.

  1. Oh the tantrums….I think they worse as they get older. Still, motherhood is wonderful.

  2. Some days we feel like we’re living in tantrum town! My favorite part used to be the kicking, but now that I’m pregnant, I feel like what’s more often than not in the way of the kicking is my belly. So we’re nipping the kicking in the bud!
