The Biggest Temper Tantrum Ever

Lets start from the beginning. Marissa and I had such a good night. We ate dinner together, she was doing new things and then it came the big one. The one you read about it, but the one you hope will never come. And then at the moment when you least expect it- Wow- its there full force.

So you wonder what was it over, changing her diaper. There was kicking, screaming, head banging, slapping of the legs and hitting. It took me 15 minutes to get her in a position to be able to put her pjs on for bed. I then had to put her straight to be. For both of us. She finally calmed down.

I took her favorite things away, gave her a sad face on her award board, and told her good night. I love that little thing but she can push you to your limit. After about 5 minutes, I went in told her goodnight and tried to process what had occurred. Five minutes after that, she was fast asleep.
