    Mummmmy.......Turn off that wind !!! Waaaaaaa

    Tantrums!! When my son was very little, he was such a serious wee chap.

    He hardly smiled, or made any acknowledgement as you sat in front of him pulling silly faces and making inappropriate noises to make him giggle. I was concerned.

    In fact, it's fair to say I shared my concern with Google. Doctor Google told me not to worry, and that said emotions would happen when baby was ready. Fast forward quite a few months, and my worry lines and wrinkles have now been replaced by combat scars.

    My son is a LOUD, funny, cheeky, mischievous, and very rough little 3 year old that throws the most hugest tantrums you have ever seen. Most of them involve him ploughing into any family member fists pumping, legs kicking, mouth spurting a jumble of obscene words, the most common being "you are a poo poo bum, and I'm not your friend".

    I recently posted on my Facebook page about some of the reasons your toddler has tantrums. I got a huge response, and spent about an hour reading them all, laughing my head off.

    I have collated a few of my favourites so you too can be happy in the knowledge that you are not alone.....you may even feel a little normal after reading these!
