Banana Muffins

My baby threw his first tantrum tonight.

We're talking full on screaming bloody murder at the top of his lungs. He was in his high chair
refusing to eat his dinner of stir fry and rice. I knew he was very tired, but he had never acted
 like this before. I called Michael at school so he could hear the wails firsthand. Then it hit me - there
was a container of  banana muffins (his new favorite food) on the counter and he was letting it be
known that he wanted those for dinner instead. Who knew some innocent muffins could
cause so much frustration?!

He didn't get the muffins and we were both miserable for a while. Parenting is no joke and I
feel like I got my first tiny taste of it tonight. 

Now that he's in bed and sleeping like an angle, I'm using these photos to remind myself
of how sweet and darling he normally is. I will try a little harder to be a little more patient tomorrow.


  1. I literally cannot imagine him being unhappy in any way! He is always so pleasant! Those must have been some pretty good muffins! Haha, and you're so strong, I would have totally caved ;) Also, the pictures are to die for, seriously that face!!!

  2. And the tantrums begin! Ha, they are just so fun ;)

  3. Haha! Who would want stir fry when there are banana muffins!! Love that cute boy!!

  4. I can't believe I didn't know you were bloggin again. This has been so fun to read and look at all of the photos. How can I get post notifications?
