I remember my oldest daughter's first tantrum, in the entryway of our home. She flung herself straight backward and I thought 'what was that?' LOL
a perfect storm of tears as her teeny feet stomped,
and her voice roared ferociously,
surprising stoic parents.
in full-blown hurricane style,
her entire foundation fallen
onto the parquet entryway.
thunder and lightening swooshed
through mom and dad,
a mind in total chaos,
they attempt to stand in the storm,
almost giving in.
the tornadic explosion resounding,
echoing in their dumbfounded brains…
how to make it stop!!
her drowning cheeks, less than appealing.
snotty water spouts and tortuous hair,
where once lived a cherub of civility!
...and suddenly the calm of the storm - serenity.
