Grown Up Tantrum

Sometimes I envy 2 year olds..............................Their ability to throw an epic tantrum seems some what pleasing to me and I only wish I could get away with it too. Just imagine throwing yourself on the floor whilst banging your fists and all the time you are getting all of that frustration out in one fail swoop.

I wanted to have a tantrum this morning as the kids argued over who needed to be in the shower first and Mr DG floated around the place pretending he couldn't hear the impending explosion. I often wonder who they think makes it possible to get into a nice clean shower and then wrap themselves in freshly laundered warm towels...............................I wonder if they even notice that someone has ironed their clothes and placed them lovingly on hangers..................Am I invisible to the naked eye I wonder?.................................Would they notice if I slipped away and left them all to it?.....................All I seem to get is a whole lot of eye rolling and mumbling, along with the occasional sideways look at each other as if to say "here she goes again.........must be her time of the month"..............................................What would they do if I suddenly dropped everything and chucked myself on the floor whilst banging my fists in anger..................................................I would imagine the kids might laugh and Mr DG would find a hasty reason why he had to be at work at that particular minute........Leaving me looking a bit of a prat.

I am sure I am not the only mother to feel slightly unappreciated sometimes and slightly non existent but we keep going back for more don't we............................................Of course we do because we love them all with every bone in our bodies and even though they drive us to the brink of insanity sometimes we wouldn't be without any of them not even for a second........................................Well....................Maybe a second.

As for the tantrum.......................................Well.........................................I might have a go one day........................Right in the middle of the lounge..................................................Although knowing my luck I would put my back out..............................................Maybe not.

Lots of Love
Me

    I often want to throw an epic tantrum. On the plus side, as grown ups we can drown our sorrows in Gin.

  2. I dare you! It's so rarely I iron that when I do I can't help pointing out every single piece every single time x

  3. Great post! I would LOVE to have a tantrum sometimes. It's things like clothes and towels (and toilet rolls and soap) magically appearing in the right place without any appreciation whatsoever which particularly wind me up. I don't think they'd cope if we weren't there to replenish them.

  4. I do throw the odd one here but no one even notices when I do it - maybe I need to be more dramatic!

    1. That's the problem isn't it.....no one ever notices. I think dramatic is the way forward. Xx

  5. I am dreading that eyeroll phase, where they stop taking me seriously and blame it on the menopause. But then I am just as guilty, blaming their tantrums on puberty!
