An Art Fest & a Tantrum

Last week, hubbie and I ventured out to the Bucktown Art Fest with toddler and pug in tow.  This fest takes place literally 2 blocks from our place so it's one we go to each year.  We enjoy strolling in and out of the stalls, listening to local bands, and eating oh so bad (but oh so good) fest food! 

Here I am feeding A a well rounded, nutritious dinner of corndogs and lemonade. ;)

A had a ton of fun dancing and running around at the fest.  Before we knew it, it was bedtime and I was trying to get her back into the trike, with very little success.  Here I am being "nice mommy" trying to coax her gently into sitting down.  A is standing straight as a pole, refusing to bend her legs to get in and avoiding eye contact.  I have one stubborn girl on my hands!

When the "nice mommy" tactics failed me, I grabbed her hands and gave her a dose of my "angry eyes". 

She finally caved but not without showing me who was boss with a tantrum in front of a crowd no less!

What are some of your favorite tantrum stories? Please share so we can commiserate together!

Great ones when our wee ones aren't cooperating, after all that's life! My hubs and I were supposed to make a trip to Chicago this August but he came down with a bug and we were forced to cancel. Hope to make it there soon though, heard it's a great city! My friend went to Oprah last year. She saw the safety tips episode. Sounds like yours was much more fun!
