Mommy: Tantrums, Tantrums...8:37 PM
I am a cool mom but I can be a strict one when I need to. I guess my son knows me too well that he rarely had tantrums even when he was younger. I was lucky to be able to discipline him at an early age. He knows that he can't get what he wants all the time.
His expression in that photo is the closest he was able to do to display a tantrum. My son was six years old that time. We were on a summer outing at Club Manila East with my parents. He was desperately trying to ask my permission to go take a dip when we haven't even settled ourselves yet. Next thing I knew, he walked out on me with a smug face. My brother found him and took this shot of him sitting beside this plant box behind our cottage looking as pitiful as he can be to his grandparents. I tried not to give in to his whims but my father took him, undressed him, and took him to the pool without sunblock! Grandparents are really spoilers but, I guess, we moms already know that.
