Before school yesterday I had to lay down the law with my cat.
“NO mice, snakes, birds or squirrels going through the pet door today. I know you think it’s a funny prank to lay them inside my toy box, but it ain’t. You’re going to give me nightmares.”
Go get that cat. He’s not allowed to walk away from me when I’m talking to him.
What? You aren’t going to help?
Forget you then. I’ll just walk to school. I know the way.
Okay. Maybe I was out of line yesterday, but I have a problem.
I’m hooked on the sauce. “FORM OF APPLESAUCE. SHAPE OF AN APPLE!”
My mommy thought that was funny. I guess you have to be old like her to understand.
And…….When I don’t get the sauce fast enough, I can rage.
People with down syndrome are not always happy. I’m so emotional, I could be my own Lifetime Channel.
P.S: Mommy said don’t feel bad. I am a big tantrum faker, especially when I don’t get my way. Just like regular dudes my age.
Hey Justice, tantrums are cool they teach those around us to pay attention. Don’t let anyone just tell you to feel better or be happy. That isn’t cool at all. If you feel bad, throw a tantrum, but not a shoe.
As for the cat, well that is what cats do. Maybe you could teach the cat to leave the presents for Mommy instead of you? The cat is trying to tell you he thinks you are part of his pride, special in the pride so he is bringing you gifts. That is actually pretty cool also.
So far my tantrums work the way I need them to…..Well….sort of. I won’t be so mad then, but maybe he could bring me Cheetos instead.
here’s a trick – save the tantrums for when it’s important. You get faster results if people aren’t used to them.
Hmmmmm? Sounds like you might be right.
Exactly like every other kid your age. Ok…you might be a little cuter.
Thanks. You know I’m married, right?
Yeah. She’s adorable, too.
