Today was Benjamin's very first all out tantrum...I mean, he's one --> isn't it a little early for that?! I was a very "busy" child and Seth was very mischievous, so we figured at some point our children would be too (it's only fair, right?)...but it hasn't happened with Ben yet. He is basically an angel - we have had no real problems or issues with him at all (table manners are even improving a bit!). Even his tantrum today (which was very dramatic and I still haven't figured out the root cause) was over in a matter of minutes. After it happened, I called my sister to make sure that I had handled it well; I know I need a game plan and I need to be consistent. Sooo, all the moms (or dads) out there reading this who are dealing with (or have dealt with) temper tantrums..let me know how you are handling them. Here is a pic of Ben at dinner tonight - we let him feed himself sweet potatoes and yogurt and he was happy as a clam (and very sticky).
