The face of a tantrum

Stinker McGee You my friends are staring into the face of a tantrum.

"But how? How can that be? He looks so sweet!" You ask?

That's what I thought. Up until moments before this picture was snapped and he threw an actual temper tantrum, complete with leg throwing, arm flailing, and head banging. Thank God the Boppy pillow you see him ever so sweetly laying on here, was under his head as he was banging it.

"About what?" you ask?

About a spoon. Because Mommy wouldn't let him hold the spoon I was trying to feed  him with.

I thought I had more time to savor his sweetness, people. I forgot how early the bitter parts begin.

See his eyebrows all sweaty and red? His eyes all teary? His cheeks all flushed? Yup... those are the signs.

Stinker. No other words could describe this kid. Stinker McGee.

I took this picture because I was in sheer disbelief that my almost 6 month old son could do the damage he had just done. And so when he is 21 years old I can go "Look! Look at how young you were when you began driving me crazy!"

You've got to try the two spoon trick, one for you to feed him and one for him to play with.

Aww he is so cute, but i know what you mean. I aways think how can something so cute make so much noise. Oh the two spoon trick is a good one and always seems to work.

We've got the tantrums, too. Sometimes they start for just me breathing the same air as her. How can something so little and sweet get so MAD???
