The Terrible Twos

We have been pretty lucky with our boys.  They usually go through being two with no real dramas and we think we have escaped the 'terrible twos', but then they get to three and show us what they are really made of.

Both Jay and Harri really weren't that bad with tantrums.  They would grizzle a bit, but overall they were pretty easy to deal with.  Kobe on the other hand has hit the terrible twos with a vengeance in the last month or so.  He chucks the biggest tantrums - throwing himself on the floor, hitting things, punching things and screaming his head off - usually saying 'NO MUMMY!' or 'NO DADDY!'.

When he doesn't get to have a bat in cricket he throws the bat down and starts kicking it and covering it with sand or grass.  If he doesn't get to play the Wii with the boys, he screams his head off until we put him into bed, and then he screams some more.

The other day he started chucking one of his tantrums in the middle of town, and they make me laugh so much that I had to pull out my iPhone (4!) to video him. This was the result - what a funny boy! If he wasn't so cute, I would be paying someone to take him away! ;)

  1. oh goodness Lisa that is hysterical. You can't help but laugh when his tantrum turns instantly to a smile when he sees the camera. So funny.

  2. So funny and cute, how do you discipline him with a straight face! But then again who needs the naughty corner when you have camera!!!!!

    Adalia didn't do the terrible two thing till three either, Serena on the other hand has just developed a strong opinion and a physical display that sometimes accompanies it at a record breaking 20months! Give me strength, this may be a long year for us!

  5. That is so funny!! He is the funniest tantrum thrower ever. I love the karate moves, and the clock dinging in the background makes it a bit more dramatic!
