It keeps taking us half an hour to get in the car with refusals to sit down in the car seat and squirming out. I’ve taken to ‘we sit on the doorstep or get in the car’ fingers crossed the doorstep time decreases quickly! Our poor neighbours listening to the tantrums and my repeated ‘sit on the step or we get in the car’mantra along with meltdown screams for half an hour. To be fair, she did sit nicely some of the time, mostly shouting ‘car!’ and ‘bird!’ but it’s is calm her down and we did eventually get in the car without a fuss. 


I have to say a big thank you Brummy Mummy of 2 for hosting #wickedwednesdays and keeping us sane, showing us we’re not alone, for saying what we all think in those arghhhhh moments and the lighter side of mummy life – especially with gin when little ones are, ok, should be, in bed x
I’m not alone in ‘I’m-not-getting-in-the-car-tantrums, am I? Pleeeeaaaaase comment with your tales tips!

    Hahahha! I completely identify with tantrums right before you put one of your foot at the door and then hanging out on the front door. :p You did well by sitting it out with her, Mummy! #bestandworst

    Oh I’m sorry t break it to you but the car seat tantrums are going to carry on for quite some time, but they get sneakier about it. L now climbs into the car by himself, heaven forbid I try to help, then if I’m not super quick, like ninja style quick, he’s squidged through to the fronts seats to play with the steering wheel. Which of course I can’t move him away from without an epic meltdown. #bestandworst

    Ahh, I’ve witnessed more getting in the car tantrums than I care to remember – they must know it’s our kryptonite or something. You definitely aren’t alone! #WickedWednesdays
