My dd who's almost 2 has started crying and having a melt down every time I throw her dirty nappy in the bin ..I'm at a loss to understand the weird nappy related attachment she seems to have developed over the last few days?
Anyone else's little ones have an odd reason for a tantrum?

My 2 year old DS had a tantrum because his bran flakes were brown. He doesn't like brown ones apparently. Only green ones hmm

My DS (now 17) had his biggest tantrum as a toddler because the ice cream he'd asked for was cold! 😂

Last night's tantrum, that actually continued into today once she remembered it - she wanted the orange berries from Tree Fu Tom. When I explained they weren't real just pretend, she just changed her demand to wanting g the pretend orange berries.

Little boy at work the other day was crying because 'his eyes were leaking.' His mum tried to explain but he wasn't having any of it.

Made my night.

Dd had a tantrum today because she demanded a bath. I ran her a bath and then she flipped out because she now wanted to go to bed.

My dd had a tantrum because she needed a wee but didn't want to go to the toilet (or the potty). She also has a meltdown at bed time because there was a robot in her room (there isn't).

My DD had a tantrum because DH took his shoes off in the hall, she wanted him to take them off in the living room. It was one of those times that he just thought "fuck it", put them back on and took them off in the living room. She was fine then.

Dd wanted to listen to the song whisky in the chair ( whisky in the jar ) . We were listening to it at the time .

My three year old dd kicked off on Sunday because she needed the pair of sissors she has found as she was spidy girl (sang in a paw patrol tune)

Apparently I was 'mean' when I took them off her for saftey 😒

Wouldn't let her eat a live charging cable. Also wouldn't let her take her nappies from the bin. Such a horrible mum

Any time we turn Paw Patrol off, even if we've had it on for 8 hours straight.

So many but the one I was least able to do anything about was when DS threw a paddy because I wouldn't give him my heart.
He wanted to hold it.

Learning the population of London:

Me: Look we're in London- this is my city!
Him: No! My City!
Me: You have to share it. ...with 8 million people
Him: Waahaaa! (throws self on floor)

This happened in Euston station at rush hour. I am an idiot.
