ESTABLISH: Sometimes I Get Mad

I have been having issues lately with my 3 year old who just decided to now assert himself against any and all authority figures. Many times this takes on the form of a temper tantrum, or a full-on meltdown. And I have been at a loss. Mainly, because I thought we had escaped this whole phase with Child #2 who has a temperament that I never knew existed. Sweet. Compliant. Agreeable. etc.

When I saw this project on Pinterest this morning, I knew I had to do it. I can’t take credit for the idea, but I did make it my own, and did all original illustrations that my little boy was sooooo excited about!!!  Click Here to see where I got the idea from, a sweet blog called A Mom With a Lesson Plan

So, go ahead and flip through the photos by clicking on the photo below, and see the “angry” book.

PS: after writing this post, i had to take a couple of pics of Rio with his book. He has been carrying it around all afternoon, reading it, talking about how he is a Big Boy who uses his Big Boy Words. And yes, he does wear a blue cape!

Desiree - You’re such a great mommy, Freedom. Your creativity that you’ve asserted into raising your children never ceases to amaze me. Keep up the great work, because you’re an inspiration to anyone who is (or wants to be ^.^) a momma. Xo.

Jenna - Um. Can I order one for Lyric? We seem to have troubles over here remembering to use our big boy words.
Well, and one for Miles too. Apparently, even big boys forget to use big boy words.
