The Terrible Two's

Somebody taught Aidan how to throw a tantrum.

I'm thinking it was Caillou. He is always teaching my kids inappropriate things. But yet, the 1/2 hour of silence during which they remain riveted to the television always seems so worth it at the time.

Side Note: One of these days I will have to write out the back story that I've invented to keep myself entertained during an episode of Caillou. The Young and the Restless has nothing on me plus a cup of coffee and a 1/2 hour block of Caillou on a Saturday morning.

But regardless of where Aidan learned it from, one thing is clear - he has mastered the art of the tantrum.
  • Body thrashing? Check.
  • Arm flailing? Check.
  • Leg kicking? Check.
  • Hip twisting? Check.
  • Toy throwing? Check.
  • Screams of rage? Check.
  • Mood swings that come on so fast they make you worry your kid has multiple personality disorder? Check.

I don't know whether to be proud or have him committed. Thank God there's a good 10 years in between now and puberty - I think it's going to take me that long to recover.

Ugh, Caillou. Becca's been watching him again lately. A couple of years ago I banned it because he was so whiny - but now it just seems so relevant now that she's 4 like him and still whiny - more relatable, I guess. Still annoying and teaching bad things, but I can deal with it more now. And the 1/2 hour of silence is golden.

I need to know how you make it through that show, do tell!
