Toddlers Are Jerks
Before I go into depth about why my toddler was a jerk today, let me firstly say that there was a reason he was the way he was; he was tired. He was also in a new place and was VERY excited about everything that was happening. That’s not to say this excuses his behaviour, I’m just stating I know there is a reason behind.
Still doesn’t change the fact that sometimes, toddlers can be f’ing jerks.
I don’t care if it isn’t PC to say that; toddlers and their actions can sometimes push you to the brink of insanity.
This is what happened today with my toddler; and this is the shortened version:
Opens and closes the tray table on the airplane, whilst BANGING it at the same time; annoying the person in front – JERK
Repeatedly doing this despite me asking, and then insisting he stopped – DOUBLE JERK
Playing nicely with another boy his age AND then taking a nap on the plane – LITTLE ANGEL
Running around the airport and sliding along the floor; despite me asking him not to – JERK
Licking the airport windows after I asked him not to – YUCK JERK!
Opening the door in the taxi cab on the way to the hotel WHILST IT WAS MOVING – NEW LEVEL OF JERK
Throwing a major tantrum because he didn’t want to hold our hands – JERK
Me constantly getting on his level and telling him what to do – ME BEING A JERK
Like I said above, I completely and utterly understand there was a reason why he was acting the way he was – but at the time it felt like “GAH STOP BEING A JERK AND LISTEN TO ME”.
Do you guys get what I mean?!
