31 for 21: Anger Management, Not Always Happy

I have written about this before and I think it is worth repeating:  Children with Down syndrome are not always happy.  If you would like to witness this personally, I invite you to stop on by La Casa De La Ellie Bellie Bear either pre-naptime or late afternoon.  You will be rewarded with a Miss Cranky Pants throwing a full-blown toddlertude tantrum.   Actually, please stop on by please please please and relieve me from these terrific two meltdowns.  I promise I will reward you with cookies or pumpkin bars :)

Here is an oldie---look at how little she was. . .such a wee little baby.  Wah!  She is all grown up now.  A big girl.  Ack!  Where did my little bebe go?!  Not mention she can now scale that baby gate like a ninja!  Oh and the bangs!  Her hair is SO LONG now.  Challenging Rapunzel for sure.

  1. Liddy is also like that. Smiling, laughing, playing to screaming, growling, and fighting in the blink of any eye. Looking forward to those terrible two's.....NOT. lol

  2. You sing it sister! This is frustrating when it is assumed. Actually, before having Calvin I was the opposite in my assumptions. I pictured a really crabby person with Ds - that was my misperception and I was surprised to hear the happy one...

  3. Hahaha, I call Samantha Miss Cranky Pants, too. :-) It speaks volumes!!

  4. I know, I know, as a parent it's so hard to deal with the tantrums. However, as an outsider looking in, those pictures of Ellie are SO CUTE!! She's adorable even when she's throwing a fit!


I love your comments and I read each and every single one of them.
