A very stubborn little girl

Sophia really, really likes to play the piano. I suppose this is fairly normal for a toddler, because after all, there are lots of "buttons" to push and they make sounds and stuff. Our particular piano is like buttons to push on steroids, because it is a digital piano. Sophie loves to push all the buttons so she can rock out to drum riffs, dance to the demos, leave the metronome on for hours and use the special effects settings to hear the dogs bark. It really does keep her entertained for hours.

Well, last night after dinner, she and Joel were having fun playing the piano. And then bedtime rolled around and it was time to stop and get pajamas on, brush teeth and do all that other stuff that most toddlers don't generally find very exciting. I feel I must mention the fact that Sophie has gotten to the age where she is experimenting with tantrum throwing. She hasn't completely learned yet that such behavior will get her nowhere (usually). That said, I'm sure you can guess what's coming.

But this tantrum? This was a tantrum of epic proportions. Not only did she throw herself onto her belly and kick and scream, but she did it after climbing onto the piano keys while trying to push the power button (which is non existent, thanks to Chloe...for once I was actually a little bit glad that I have to use the car key to turn my piano on and off) with one hand and holding on to her ball with the other.

In the event that you don't believe me, or feel like I am exaggerating my story, I do have photographic evidence:
And just in case you weren't aware, this is what you call a very stubborn little girl.

  2. My little one is extremely stubborn too. I know exactly the tantrums you are talking about.

    This picture is so funny. She will probably laugh herself in years to come.

    Cute banner!

  8. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! What a great photo! I have my piano locked away. I want them to be able to use it, but the thought scares me. I'll bring it out sooner or later.

    I'll be sending your chocolate this week :)

  9. I love it! Mason has also started experimenting with the temper tantrums and it just makes us laugh - for the time being anyway.

  10. That is hilarious! What a great picture to show her hubby one day! It is good to know that Annabelle isn't the only one throwing tantrums. I had no idea that tantrums started as early as they do or maybe that has something to do with these stubborn children as I have one of my own. What does this mean that the "terrible twos" are going to be like?

  14. What I admire is the fact that you can calmly step back from those epic proportion tantrums to take a picture and laugh a bit-that is hilarious.
