The Tantrums are Back
Well, that was short-lived: after seeing noticeable progress in the tantrum category last week, Aaron's temper is back with a vengeance. It didn't help that he was feeling a little under the weather; but even adjusting for that, he's been a beast. Mornings, evenings, meal time, bath time - you name it, he's upset about it.
It takes all Amy and I have to clench our fists, hold our ground, and ride it out; we've come too far to backtrack, and know we're responding correctly even if the outward response from him doesn't reflect it. But you'll excuse us if you catch us sitting by ourselves, smiling at the enjoyment of a moment of silence unpierced by crying, shrieking, or thrashing.
