Well this weekend we went to a friend’s daughter’s 2nd birthday party.
When we first arrived my daughter was ok, however as more and more people arrived the devil horns emerged and she made it quite clear that she wasn’t happy! By the time pass the parcel started my little girl was laid in the middle of the circle having a complete meltdown, snotting and dribbling everywhere whilst screaming and crying. We even tried stopping the music on her straight away so she could unwrap the parcel but that didn’t work!
Rather embarrassed at the situation and in a room full of a lot of mums and dads that I didn’t know, I scooped up my little girl and took her into the hallway. However there was no calming her, she sat by the stairs and continued her stand! I had to just step away into the doorway and leave it to her in the end (which did work a little).
I felt so stressed as it’s not often my daughter is like this and for it to be in front of a load of strangers made me feel really anxious, friends I can cope with… honest!
After a dose of Calpol (we think her very back four teeth are coming through, but I’m not sticking my fingers in her mouth to find out!) she finally calmed down and started playing on the tricycle and tractor outside. By the time everyone was leaving she was angelic and happily playing again… shame it hadn’t been like that to start off with! Never mind, guess it always has to be someone’s turn and this time it was mine!
