My toddler this week...
This week I witnessed the funniest tantrum yet and it all started with a banana!
Isla: I wanna 'nana
Me: We're going to nursery in a minute, you'll have breakfast there.
Isla: I wannaaaaaaa 'nanaaaaaaa (repeat x 12)
Me: OK then (goes gets banana, peels it and hands it over)
Isla: I wannnnnnaaaaaaa 'nanaaaaaa
Me: I'VE JUST GIVEN YOU A BANANA
Isla: (Now pointing at the remaining bananas in the fruit bowl) I wanthatone
She now throws the banana that I gave her on the floor and goes back to pointing at the other bananas. I ignore her and get Noah ready to leave the house. Then she goes over to the discarded banana, stamps on it and goes over to the window hysterically crying, looking out in despair. When she stamps on the banana I'm open mouthed, as I've never seen this level of stroppiness before! Then 2 minutes after stamping on it, she goes over to the banana picks it up and happily walks off eating it!!
Who could know that a banana could cause so much grief?!
