Tantrum Queen

via Daily Prompt: Tantrum

Oh ! My little darling,

Just added 4 to her age,

Was yelling, crying and wailing,

Was in a fit of rage !

Fit of rage, Not for a toy, not for a crayon,

Not for a chocolate, and not for  pop corn,

But to put her shoe on, Which she couldn’t,

I tried to help, allow ? She just wouldn’t..

All through the car ride on the hills,

She threw tantrums with all her skills,

My attempts to calm her were inept,

The driver giving glances, challenging me on motherhood precepts.

Reaching the room, I tried the cartoon channel,

Tried to pacify her through the food funnel,

Simple splashes of water on her face, gave her the breather,

Respite writ large on my face, her hiatus was my biggest appeaser.

  1. Of all this, I know this line “The driver giving glances, challenging me on motherhood precepts” the best. I can even say I have got used to it every time my little one gives me tantrum troubles. But we don’t let those looks bog us down. We both try;)
    Glad you finally managed to appease her, Deepika.
