A manic little elf

You guys! I was feeding Nathan his lunch today when he suddenly was on the verge of an Apocalyptic Meltdown. So I started making silly faces at him. It was only partially successful. He wouldn’t stop crying, so he was laughing uproariously and crying SIMULTANEOUSLY. Like some sort of CRAZED, MANIC ELF.

What a strange kid.

His diaper must’ve been in a wad or something, I don’t know. But it took me holding him while dancing to one of his favorite songs to get him in a good mood again. Now, my arms and legs feel disconcertingly like big BLOBS OF JELLO, but hey! I successfully thwarted a temper tantrum!



  1. Don’t you wish we could get a way with having melt downs and have someone hold us and dance to our favorite song? Oh, we probably got that same treatment;too bad we can’t remember being that young!

    • I know, right? A toddler’s life is just SO hard, ya know. It’s not easy being showered with affection and attention and having your every need attended to!
