That word is used in our house a lot lately. I wish we were using it in the context of, "I'm so fit because I'm working out" but, alas, that is not how it is used. It does not usually pertain to Dillon either but last night he threw a whopper of a fit. It was so sad and so funny at the same time, so what does every proud parent do? Record it. Dillon is blocked off, keeping him in the living room. One thing blocking him is a little doorway. He figured out he could just open the door and crawl through so we had to get clever. We blocked it with a bumbo. He just figured that out...

Here he is, in happier times, enjoying the house.

Ayden has been throwing at least four fits a day since the day he turned two, I'm not kidding. Now that three of his siblings are gone and he's the big man of the house, I thought it would improve things. It didn't.

Here are the stages of his angst. It starts well.

Ayden feeding his baby (he has to grab the baby's head to feed him).

He got down because the baby was finished. Now he's getting grumpy here....
And here's the fit, a literal meltdown if you will...
I can't tell why he is crying but that's life with Ayden lately.

AWW, life's so hard when you are 2!
What is that his cereal bowl??? Poor little guy.

No, it was a bowl from his play kitchen that he was 'feeding' his baby with. Who knows what the meltdown was for. It was totally out of the blue. He started yelling at me, I couldn't understand him, then he shrunk down crying. Then Bobby came home and he was a perfect angel. Go figure.

poor thing, they're so thrilled with life one minute, then in utter despair the next.
I can be that way too though. But I'd rather throw my fits alone and run away from everyone.

This age is a hard one. I think when they turn 4 everything gets a little easier. You can understand them, they can understand you and you can reason with them.

It was great seeing Brooklyn again.
