I had expected Rhea to throw tantrums but not this soon. It has slowly been building up for about a month now. The crying fits are now accompanied by hand flailing and foot stomping. This all has happened within the privacy of my home. This past weekend was a first for both of us. I asked her to hold my hand while in the Aquarium's gift shop. She pulled away from me and ran. I then grabbed her hand and that is when it happened. She screamed and threw herself on the floor. I tried to pick her up off the floor but that made things worse. A group on mothers pushing strollers gave me a sympathetic "Terrible Twos" Not even close. Fitful Fourteen month old. And of course my father rewarded this behavior by purchasing her a penguin book in the gift shop. I am doomed.
