We witnessed our first bona fide toddler tantrum this morning after leaving the house. Darr and I were at the elevator waiting for Henry to join us when he completely lost it for no apparent reason. As the words were leaving my mouth that Bean might be having his first tantrum, Henry threw himself to the floor in front of our neighbor's door. There were no arms flailing, fists banging or legs kicking but there was a definite palpable feeling of too much emotion. Emotion the poor little guy couldn't rein in so he had to let it out the only way he knew how. All in all, it lasted maybe two minutes, tops. Then Henry joined us in the elevator for the ride down to the car. And all was okay in his world. Sometimes it's tough being a kid.
