Bathtime Tantrum

Where's Mommy during bathtime, May 24, 2012, 7:50 p.m.

Sad and defiant at bathtime, May 24, 2012, 7:50 p.m.


From Daddy: While Robert can be a very cool kid, he can be very stubborn and defiant. Last night after school, Mommy and I attended a parent reception at his school’s library. While Mommy and I enjoyed food and conversation, Robert watched The Lion King and had a snack with other kids elsewhere in the school. He wasn’t ready to leave when we were and he was beginning to be a bit “off,” so I stayed with him until the end of the movie while Mommy was granted the night off.

Unfortunately, he was not happy with me at home and spent most of the night yelling for Mommy. Enjoy his tantrum below!

Eventually, when I was getting Robert dressed for bed, he calmed down and the rest of the night was great.
