    Default ahhhh bad morning

    So 2yo arrived mid tantrum. When I opened the door the tantrum stopped & he walked in perfectly happy. Mum took this opportunity to discuss with him why she had told him off in the 1st place.
    So tantrum starts again. She says oh for gods sake and leaves. For the last hour I've had a screaming 2 yo laying on my hall floor. He properly screams, ear piercing, window shattering screams.
    I have 1 child who needs a nap but can't because of all the noise so he's now grumpy and another sat on the sofa with hands over ears.
    Someone save me

    Yes, definitely something in the air today! 2 yo and almost 4 yo (not related) arrived at 8am both mid tantrum this morning. Very draining, love the way parents just leave us to get on with - although it probably ends quicker when they are with me

    I hope you are hugging a huge big piece of wood. Shhhhhh don't say things like that the powers that be take it as a challenge
    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door

    Granny just collected lo. He's been having this same tantrum all morning. All I needed to do was look at him and he was back to kicking and screaming on the floor.
    She asked what was wrong so I said mum told him off this morning and he's still not over ot yet.
    She picked him up and said awww don't cry you're a good boy really have some sweeties.
    So now I've got 2 children left with me crying because they didn't get sweets. Way to go granny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm going to have words & say please don't give your grandson sweets infront of the other children. Especially when he's been such a little sh*t all morning. Ahhh

    Hope everyone's day improves!
    Just got my two to sleep
    One arrived at 7.40 and mom just said 'good luck!' and left. He's been screaming/ crying until ten mins ago.
    The other cries every time the other one does!! So surround sound !!
    Fingers, toes and everything crossed they have a proper sleep now!!! X
