tantrums

The little man is given into dramatics lately. When he gets annoyed or he does not get his way, he screams and pretends to cry (pretend because I don't usually see tears) for long periods of time which irritates me. I told him he is no longer a baby, he is a big kid so he should act it but it only aggravates him more. I don't know what to do to him sometimes because when I am at the end of my rope with him I throw tantrums too like the next kid. I know it is improper but hey try dealing with a kid who whines at every little aggravation and let me know if it does not drive you buggy. The husband pretends nothing is going on when this happens. He knows better than to get into the action, lol. When the little man is in a good mood though he is the sweetest boy in the world. He gives me kisses, he hugs, he sings with me, and we snuggle in the couch and talk what the husband calls gibberish. He even looks for Mom and gets very happy when he finds me even if I did not move a muscle and I was just in the same couch he left me after he gets bored talking. That is why when he has his tantrum it tears me to pieces thinking how a sweet little boy could be so mean in a flash. I want to know so I know better how to react. Somehow I don't remember doing these things when I was a kid so I am blaming the husband for this trait, lol. Like what I always say whenever we experience things like this, I hope this is just a phase that the little man will outgrow in a few months time.
