Tantrum Tuesday (#008)

The weather may be getting frightful on this chilly November afternoon, but we’ve got something that will warm your heart and give you a good laugh! Tuesday is here, which means it’s time to share another epic tantrum with the world!


Our son Sam makes his second appearance on Tantrum Tuesday this week. Honestly, this is another picture we couldn’t wait to post. This is from our 2011 family vacation to Anna Maria, Florida. Each evening we walked to the beach for the beautiful sunset and each time Kristin gave explicit instructions to the kids to not get near the water. It had more to do with the fact that pajamas were on and evening baths were completed, than the tide, but that was a small part. Sam, being Sam, disobeyed and trotted closer and closer to the surf. I stood close by him and waited….

Just then, the ocean decided to show Sam who was boss!


Tide- 1. Sam- 0!

Before you get the idea that we are heartless parents who are ready with iPhone in hand, for opportunities to snap a photo of our child’s misery (eh-hem!), Kristin was a good mom and scooped her sand-packed, surf-soaked son up for comfort (after we snapped the picture!)…


You gotta love stubborn children, right!?
