"Temper tantrums: a normal part of growing up."

This is the title of a brochure the pediatrician gave us at our last visit. Just browsing through it, though, I'm getting a weird feeling that it may pertain more to me than to Eliot.

"Your young child is busy learning many things about her world. She is eager to take control. She wants to be independent and may try to do more than her skills will allow. She wants to make her own choices and often may not cope well with not getting her way. She is even less able to cope when she is tired, hungry,
frustrated, or frightened."

Umm...okay...who wrote this? Do you live in my household? Possibly inside my head? I've gotta go now, because I need to eat a bunch of chocolate chips cookies and take a nap.
