Temper Tantrum!

publishes a similar photograph. Check it out!


You would have a tantrum. too, if you felt just like him
If you were a Terrible Two yourself and life was looking grim.
A two year-old is invincible, at least in his own mind,
He can do anything, anything, of any sort or kind.
He is King of the Castle, he's Lord of all Creation.
If anybody interferes with him they'll just meet aggravation.
Anything is possible; he knows no rules or laws;
He's not aware that water boils or animals have claws.
He just knows what he wants he wants, and he certainly wants it NOW,
And so he's going to scream for it! What an unholy row!
What right has this larger person to trim his billowing sail?
He's going to kick and shout and bite and stamp and kick and flail!
He wants to stay in the park! He does! He's not going anywhere!
Life is an awful, awful thing. He's discovered it's not fair.
And mother has done with coaxing. She's fed-up with the din!
And he's a horrible feeling that, in the end, she'll win.
She decides to walk away!She doesn't care a fig.
That's when Terrible Two decides he's, after all, not big.
But when the tantrum's over and everyone is calm
We find a two-year-old toddler is chockablock with

I think you've caputured the "terrible" two's thinking perfectly. And, thank goodness they still hold on to some of their beliefs of "grandeur."

I like strong willed children because they grow up to be people who can think for themselves:)
