The Terrible Twos
Noah has proven himself a full fledged toddler. This afternoon I stopped at Ukrops after Noah's Dr.'s appointment. It's the closest grocery store that sells soy yogurt and since he prefers soy I stop there whenever I get the chance. Noah loves cold things and wanted to lick/suck on the outside of the yogurt containers. I didn't think that was the best idea. Holy tantrum, Batman! Noah kicked, screamed, and threw the yogurt containers at a poor woman in the bakery. I made a quick retreat to the checkout line where Noah tried to climb out of the cart and onto the conveyor belt. Being the mean mommy that I am, I was against that too. Thankfully we only had a few items so my public embarrassment ended quickly. I got a few good kicks on the way out and by the time we got to the car Noah was totally calm. I guess I should be upset, but I'm actually kind of proud. A tantrum is such a normal thing... People understand. I remember the first time Noah's apnea monitor went off in public -people looked at me like I had 3 heads. And explaining to a store employee why there is 6 oz of vomit on the floor (and how I know that it is, indeed, 6 oz.) is really not my idea of a good time. Maybe Noah will give up the vomiting and just throw tantrums. That would be nice.
