Reasons My Toddler Had a Meltdown

Oy vey. Worse then terrible twos, huh? I really can not speak from experience since never was "blessed" with children.
I have seven kids. What the Lord is teaching me here is what we look like to Him, and how precious His sacrifice and desire for fellowship with us really are. So it is truly a blessing when I sit down to think about it.

It has also taught me a LOT about mercy and what the Bema may look like.

Seriously
When we had only 2 young children, we were told that boys were harder when little, easier when older. Girls easier when little, harder when older.

Now those two are teenagers, (girl 15, boy 13) I'd say that pretty much rings true so far. Though 'harder' seems to be exponentially relative when raising a little boy vs a teenage girl.

I've got at least one boy with oppositional defiance disorder. The teenage girl is a cakewalk.

When Cigarson was about 7 years old or so, there was a memorable episode:

After a busy Saturday of playing outside, we sat down for dinner. Half-way through his plate, a panicked look crossed Cigarson's face. "I think I forgot to eat lunch!"

This caused an inconsolable melt-down. No doubt, he had popped in for a quick snack or something. There's no way that he went hungry.

But still.... an entire mealtime had passed him by, and now it was too late. He'd never get that lunch back now. Oh no! :cry:

My toddler puts me in time out sometimes. I'm not hating it.

This morning, my 4 year old threw a fit because I wouldn't keep guessing the punchline of her joke until I got it right. I called it quits after 5 guesses.

My son isn't a toddler anymore. In fact, he's about 30.

He still has a melt-down when I have to remind him that boogers are not food.

He didn't want to wear the hat he was wearing. He wanted my hat.
