With age comes independence. With independence, obviously comes the ability to throw really, REALLY big tantrums.
Georgia and I have been on a roll lately. As she starts to notice the signs that we'll be leaving the house soon - daycare for her and work for me - she screams and cries and rolls around on the ground and throws an all out fit. It's a sight to behold, let me tell you. How do kids learn this stuff?
I guess between the screams and kicks and cries and scratches, I can at least tell myself she does this because she doesn't want me to go to work. It might have to become my new chant.
