The past few months have been a new zone for the Roversi’s, we have entered the world of the tantrum. No major events yet (maybe I shouldn’t speak too soon) but definitely some occasions of crying, stamping of feet and screaming. So I thought it’d be fun to document these occasions (
as well as other stubborn moments), so I can look back and laugh…maybe!
Mini R on Babybel:
“How dare you break my perfect bit of cheese when taking the lovely red wrapper off! I couldn’t possibly eat it now it is in two parts! What’s that? You’ve fixed it, okay….noooooooo, it broke in my hands! It’s the end of the world. Eat it in several small pieces you say? Oh okay then!
Mini R on Microwaves:
“What are you doing with my food?! Give it to me right now! My porridge does not need to be twirled around! (Finally give him his porridge) nooooooo! What is this grule?! I wanted shreddies! (Tries porridge) oh actually, I’ll eat it.”
Mini R on changing his nappy:
“Poop poop! Poop poop! Nap nap. Mat. Yes I’ll get the mat out like a big boy. Ah what a great game, now I’ll put the mat away and run off, shaking my head.”
Mini R on mummy’s omelette:
“I will shout MORE and prod it until she gives me some.”
Alternatively… “I will sneeze all over it and laugh!”
Mini R on the Guinea Pigs in Pets At Home:
“Eating. Dinner…..nice. (These are the actual words of Mini R) They look nice Mummy. Never mind all the nice balanced meals you make. I’ll have guinea pig pellets.”
Mini R on napping:
“Nap you say? No not today I don’t think. I’ve napped every day without any bother so today I think I’m going to kick off. I’m goning to cry till you come cuddle me and then fall asleep on you like I’m a newborn again. Oh and just to keep you on edge I’ll twitch a bit so you think I’m waking up.”
(incidentally, I did manage to transfer him to his cot. Mummy: 1. Mini R:0)
Mini R on tissues:
“I’ll be a good boy and wipe my nose as Mummy asked. Ooooh taking the tissues out of the box is fun. Ahhhh mummy’s coming – RUN! Ahhhhhhh HOW DARE SHE take that tissue off me?! It was my favourite toy ever!!!!”
Mini R on Coco the Cat:
“Hello my fluffy friend! Let me hug, prod and stare at you! No, don’t run away, I love you! Coco, coco, coco!
Incidentally, Coco is not a fan of Mini R.
Mini R on mornings:
“I’ve decided that 7am is too much of a lie in and it’s making me miss out on a couple of hours of the day which I don’t like, so we’re going to start getting up at 5am, okay Mummy?”
No son, this is not okay. 5am is still NIGHTTIME and Mummy is tired!
Mini R on counting:
“I’m sorry Mummy, I know Daddy sent you a picture of us counting together and you got all proud but it is not something I’m willing to share with you yet. Therefore, I refuse to count for you.”
So there you go, ten moments of craziness with Mini R from the past couple of weeks. Lets home to 5am mornings disappear, every Babybel I open says in tact and I can keep him away from the tissues! Unsurprisingly, since that incident, they’ve been out of reach for the little man and I’ve been extra careful when peeling back the red waxy skin of the above mentioned cheese. The things us parents do! Make me feel less alone, has your child had a tantrum/protest over the most ridiculous thing? Comment below or find me on Facebook and Twitter.
