Anger Trumps Carpet

FIL is home and doing well. I think the healing process has tripled just by having Hubbie there to give him comfort.

Life here? Hanging by a thread. My son is hitting the terrible twos, and it takes my breath away. He threw a tantrum today that scared the ever-loving shit out of me. The lesson he still has not learned? That cheap rental carpet does not do a thing to protect your head when you bang it repeatedly in anger and frustration. Anger trumps carpet. Every time.

I think we've already hit the terrible twos. Joy.

Oh my goodness! You are in for a wild ride, kiddo!

Though my son's tantrums never matched those of my daughter, he surprised me with his bursts of aggression. Thank God he outgrew that!

Peace - D

Wow. Maybe strap a pillow to his head?

The terrible twos. I'm so glad I don't remember those.

Duck said...

Oh my!

I'm hoping he hasn't started doing it in public yet!

@AFM: Good to know I've got someone to commiserate with. Though I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy.

@RP: I am hoping he outgrows it and develops Hubbie's even-keeled temper.

@tysdaddy: Oh shit. You mean there is a Terrible Nines?

@CMGD: Denial much? :)

@Duck: No, but dear daughter pulled a shit fit in the parking lot of the preschool and got a taste of what was like to have everyone stare at her. I don't think she liked it.

Oh GOTTA love the terrible twos. I'm so glad you took a pic to document this wonderful event. You can share it with him later in life.

Here's to you SURVIVING the absense of the husband time.
