Anatomy of a Tantrum
Henry has always been the king of meltdowns. That is no secret. I happened to be taking some pictures of Henry playing with his new wipes toy when he had a tantrum. I just kept clicking away. These pictures were all taken within a 3 minute time frame.
Henry happily playing. Not pictured, he found a wrapper and tried to eat it. I took it away from him. Henry's doctor suggests ignoring the tantrum. So I just watch it unfold.
Tantrum begins. His arm is reaching out to smack me.
The shrieking starts...
Now the crocodile tears. Hen can turn these on and off at will.
Henry notices his new toy again. All crying and tears stop immediately. He goes back to playing, as if nothing happened.
Welcome to my life, these happen probably 15 times a day. He's going to be a joyful toddler.
