It will get better. It will get better? It WILL get better.

So for the past two days Bayly, my four year old, has been throwing a tantrum.  Yes a two day/48 hour/2880 minute/172800 second tantrum.  Not just any tantrum.  We have hitting.  Throwing objects and food.  Yelling.  Screaming.  Building WMD's.  Ok I cannot confirm the last one, but it wouldn't surprise me.  For what reason, you ask?  Name it.  Its here at home.  It was at church.  There is no real pattern, other than that she is a diva; a real bitch.  I don't know how to "adjust" her attitude without high voltage or  causing bodily harm.  We have taken everything imaginable thing away short of blankets, clothes and running water; the heat may be next.  Its hard to understand why things don't quite skink in yet.  "They" say to stick with time out; it will sink in.  But they don't know how stubborn Bayly is.  They don't know that both of her parents are very mild mannered and aren't stubborn at all.  We are really having a hard time figuring out where she get it.  (C'mon really?  We know.  It comes from her mother)

Just now, a cool, calm and collected politely asked to have "Little Bunny Foo Foo" so she can go to sleep.  Upon hearing that she will not be listening to "LBFF," or anything else for the next few days,  she flailed about on the floor like a fish out of water, kicking and screaming.  Now we have reached the apex of punishment.  She will have to chose outfits to match either her black sparkly shoes or her Nike Air's.  What else can we do?  I say we call The Super Nanny.  Maybe then we will get a spin off or even a reality TV show (because that's all that is on TV nowadays).

It will get better.  Cali can't be this bad.  It will get better?  Or maybe she will pick up her sister's bad habits.  It WILL get better.  She will be broken of these habits.  Either that or I have a big problem on my hands.  I can't take this for the next umpteen years.

Anyone got any ideas????

  1. HAHA! Bayly=Melina. Although I'm sure Bayly doesn't hold a grudge like Melina does. THAT was pure stubbornness.
