Somewhere Malthus asked about little Tim's first sentence.  At the time I said he hadn't said more than two words together.

Even in the last few weeks that's changed.  His first sentence I can recall was a week and a half ago from the Calgary Zoo "Hippo go lie down", which, naturally, was him commenting on the hippo which had been walking around, lying down on the ground.

But yesterday was the best.  I picked him up from dayhome, and I got a big hug and a "I love you daddy". :wub:

Yesterday my son threw his first big and public temper tantrum with me.  Awwwwww

I have talked to other parents about it and it seems the best way to deal with tantrums is to be extremely passive aggressive and that is right in my wheelhouse. :w00t:

I just have to fight the urge to laugh when he has tantrums.  It's so ridiculous, especially the one or two times it's a full-out, hands and feet banging on the floor, tantrum.

No it was hilarious.  I stopped to get cookies and he flipped the fuck out when he saw a whole shelf of cookies.  It was just surprising as I have taken him shopping dozens of times so I was a bit flustered.  Next time I will be ready.

I take Tim shopping all the time.  It's one of the few household chores that can be done with him hanging around.  But last weekend was the first time he started asking, nay, demanding, the various things he saw.  I did buy him an apple, but otherwise just kept on going.

Pretty sure I covered it within this thread.  Not a professional daycare, with 20 or more kids, but rather he goes to somebody's home.  In this case a nice Indian lady with three young kids of her own, who takes in 3 other little kids during the day.
