I don’t even know where to start in recapping this weekend. It was busy to say the least. We spent our Saturday hanging out with family. Before we met up with them, we had a chance to get a run in. We got all bundled up and headed out. I’m so thankful E loves the stroller still.
I also got some supplies to work on one of the MANY Pinterest projects I’ve been wanting to do. I got to do one of those Rag Wreaths. Here’s the inspiration:
I bought 1 yard of 5 different fabrics (3 pattern and 2 solid color). I cut them into 1 x 5 in strips and just started tying knots onto a 12 in metal frame. I only tied to 3 of the four wires on the frame. All said, the project costs about $25 but was definitely a lot of fun to make. I think it looks great on our black door.
On Sunday, E and I met with some fellow bloggers that I’ve been dying to meet. I took my camera and was hoping to get some great photos of a great afternoon but all of a sudden the toddler tantrums reared their ugly head and we were forced to end our afternoon early. I did get to meet them and I really wish I had more time.
I’m in dire need of some help here. E is 16 months old and I swear he’s 2. His tantrums are terrible and I’m not sure how to get him to stop. He refuses to listen to me. He wants to do what he wants when he wants. If that means standing in his high chair at a restaurant so be it. I try to tell him no, to sit but it doesn’t work. I end up pulling him out of the restaurant where I try to reason with him. Yeah, not a good approach. Does anyone have any recommendations? Any books I can read? I’m getting really frustrated. I can’t do anything without feeling anxious about the tantrum that is most likely about to happen.
Does anyone do time out at this age? How do you do it? We try to do something where I just hold him until he settles down but I have to admit his desire to persevere is strong.
