The naughty phase


Naughty 

So littlest nephew J is officially into his terrible 3s phase. Naughty beyond a shadow of a doubt. It's spontaneous combustion when he can't get his way....and it's ugly! *LOL*


Does he get his way? Hmmmm....
I usually let him go at it for a minute or so to let him get his frustration out of his system...then he has to stop and tell me what he wants. Since I'm a skilled negotiator, we always end with peace....and sometimes, candy. *LOL*

I used the sketch at Creative Scrappers.

Supplies Basic Grey patterned papers and brad, MT tape, Maya mists, American Crafts thickers, ribbon, button, thread, black pen.

oh i have definitely been through this phase and know its quite difficult to handle...you are doing a fab job if you are able to negotiate peace...i usually ended up giving in to their wishes..bad me :(...your LO is super as usual i love the pics and central flower brad you have used..so pretty!!

Ali said...

Love this layout and the subject matter!! Fabulous :0)

Ah, temper tantrums...blech. Do you know one tip I saw which made me laugh, is to video the tantrum & show the child? Something about seeing how they look so ridiculous helps them not do it as much. At the very least, you'll get a giggle watching it again when they're teenagers! I love the idea of memorializing this - after all, every kid does it! love the perfect washi border :)

You mean he doesn't save all his tantrums for home? I thought that was the upside of being an aunt! Love the stitching on this.

Not every kid goes through this phase. Nephew #1 & #2 didn't throw tantrums at the same age. Hope you get lucky. :)

Hmmm....something I should try. Thanks for sharing Jessi! :)
