The Answer is Yes.....

The question, asked by Crystal was "Does she ever cry?". Oh my..... yes, she does, believe me. I just choose not to capture many of those moments. Here's proof:

Just starting to get upset.


And here come the tears.





And not moments before, she was happy as can be.





She has a hot, hot, hot temper, let me tell you. She has really taken to SCREAMING and SHRIEKING at the top of her lungs lately. She does it when she's mad(if I take something away), frustrated, who knows what. I honestly am popping more ibuprofen than I should but some days I think my head is going to explode. I am doing my best to ignore her when she does it as I have heard that's the best thing. But, I can't lie and say I haven't given her a stern admonition more than once. It's especially fun when she does it and we are out in public. I find you get two kinds of looks: 1) From parents who have been there, done that and feel for you and 2) From people who either don't have kids, have them but it's been too long to remember those days or somehow they had the only angelic kid that never had a hissy in public.

This is the life, isn't it????

I can't imagine her ever crying. She always has that big beautiful smile.

Thanks for your comment on Olivia's room! It's funny that you thought of pink and brown because I was originally going to do lavender, white and green like you did, I love those colors together.


Gabriella is beautiful even when she's upset.

Everyone says the same thing about Sabrina since I don't post photos of her fits.

LOVE that photo of Bing! (That's the cat's name, right?)

Crystal said...

HEY YOU!!!! Okay I am loving this post!!! You are the cutest!!!! She is just too cute crying and all!!!!!!!!


I have to tell you--I could tell you a story or two (maybe even like six or seven!)about a crazy public fit from my sweet Caleb--not so much anymore, but when he turned three, OH MY!!! I would usually walk out mortified!!! :O)

ps--Bing DEFINATELY HAS THE LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :O)

Crystal said...

hey --Thank you for posting this!!!! :O)

I still can't imagine her unhappy!!!!!!!!!! She is a little dollbaby!!!!

Carrie said...

I don't take photos of Savannah crying either. It is so sad. All of them do the screaming thing and the emotions go up and down so quickly. We are in for it when they are teenagers. The drama.

Love Bing. He is so cute.

I was feeling pretty bad for you(Oh, I've been there) but then you had to throw that picture of Bing in there and I had to laugh.

Muriel Elrod said...

She does cry. I know what you mean about the looks in poublic. Sometimes i want to say if you think you can make her calm go ahead...be my guest.

Kim said...

Love Bing!! I think Bing and my cat, Lucky, would have a great time together.

Alex also can get mad quickly - and he can throw a mean fit. (on the floor, screaming, banging his legs on the floor) I have learned to make sure he won't hurt himself and then leave him alone. It's hard - and he certainly knows how to push my buttons - but it seems to be working.

Kerry said...

Oh yes, toddlers. Gotta love 'em. If I don't fill up a sippy cup quite fast enough to suit Cameron, he will literally throw himself on the floor and scream. Nice.

Well-heeled mom said...

I was fortunate that my son never threw tantrums. I am one of the sympathetic onlookers, though, because I realize how lucky I am, and that it could change at any moment!

That Bing - I'd follow him all day long with a camera!

nikki said...

It must be that hot Guatemalan temper. Olivia has it too.
Love that Bing!!!!

The public tantram happened to me the other day in Walmart only with a 7 year old....I asked to move out of the way three times. After an entire day of not listening I moved her myself. Then she proceeded to collapse to the floor arms flalling about.. If someone hadn't watched the whole scene they'd have thought I beat her right there in public. I was so embarrased. I feel for ya.

Looks like Bing is lovin' life.

Alleen I don't think I ever told you about our Olive Garden experience. Taylore had just turned a year old. Let's just say after a few flying breadsticks and her sippy cup, we boxed up our meals(which hadn't been touched) and left.

I am so glad you mentioned this... Angelena has a set of lungs on her too! The new thing now is, if she don't get what she wants, she throws herself on the ground, arches her back and shrieks, cries, stop to see if I am watching, and if she catches me watching, she gets louder, but if I pretend not to watch, she gets up comes closer to me, and starts over! I have to get it on camara... it is kind of cute..

Love it! Elena is one fiesty Latina herself, so it's great to hear that there is someone else in the boat. I think that we shouldbuy stock in Advil -- they're not even two yet, and just wait for the teenage years.

Great photos of her working herself up into a fit. They'll make great blackmail in the future.

I get the shrieking and screaming in stereo in my house. I think I have partially lost some of my hearing.
