Testing Tantrums.

Talia is the queen of tantrums. She’s 16 months old and I’m legitimately feeling like “Terrible Twos” has hit our household now. 

Some days, I literally feel defeated. I do everything possible to make her happy. Im lucky if I sit down, some days I forget to eat. Not intentionally but I’m always doing something! I know its not her fault and she can’t help it but sometimes I feel like I’m not enough? Obviously its just me and her. I feel like she needs more :/ she probably doesn’t but I just don’t know what is going on in her little cute head! 

She’s started being fussy with food, kicking me, generally ignoring me when I tell her not to do something, throwing long tantrums on the floor and spending most of the day crying or whining. I feel like I must be doing something wrong? 

I know I overthink but her happiness is my number one priority and I just hate to see her so agitated and sad. 

Any advice? X

  1. I have a 2 year old daughter and she is the same way. She’s not unhappy, she’s just a growing girl who finally realizes all the things in her environment and at times get overwhelming for them. They want to see, do, taste, and explore everything.๐Ÿ˜ƒ Except there’s one problem, us moms are the ones to ruins the fun to keep them alone. Except us moms and kids share a common hate, and thats the dreaded “No”! We say that to each other. Except we get it and they don’t ,so they return it with tantrums๐Ÿ˜. But don’t worry ,as they get older they grow out of it. โ˜บSorry for the long answer, it’s just i know your pain.๐Ÿ˜–lol!

    • That makes me feel so much better, thankyou for your comment! As a first time mum doing it all alone, sometimes I have NO idea ๐Ÿ˜‚ all I do is try my best! I was just having a funny day when I wrote this! But that is true, they are little explorers and sometimes it gets the better of them ๐Ÿ™‚ oh yes the dreaded word “No”. Nobody likes that word! I’m trying to not use it and use other words instead. But she is still little so I’m not expecting her to understand fully! Makes me feel better knowing they grow out of it. Although I want her to stay little as long as physically possible hahah ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  2. 16 month over here as well and he’s the same! UGH. Tantrums and fussiness. Screaming fits. Constantly testing boundaries lol. Today he only ate the chicken in his meal and gagged at his rice and veg. Like thanks buddy. Even though you totally had something similar yesterday lol.
