Tantrums, baseball, and summertime.

Tantrums... yes. Our daughter who is not even 2 yet, is the master of the tantrum. This just started a few weeks ago, and she has been having up to 4 a day. She screams at the top of her lungs, arches her back, head dives backwards onto the floor, rolls around, cries, yells. Sometimes they are pretty entertaining. I guess the best method to stop these tantrums is the 'ignore it' method, but to me it seems like she is getting more worked up when we don't acknowledge her. I guess this is just the first step :)

On another note, Hannah started swimming on the Monona Swim and Dive team. She has already had 2 weeks of swimming after school from 5-630 and so far we think she really likes it. Its every day all summer for 1.5 hours, and then meets are on the weekends!

Matt is finally done with baseball and with that I hope that normality can return in our house? Now what I am most worried about is when school is out. It's going to be great to have him home all the time, but I'm worried that he is going to go crazy. I'm also kind of worried that there will be too much TV watching and not enough outside time. I'm ALSO worried that he will start to resent me and the kids from being home too much. I suggested that he take one day a week to himself and send Emma to daycare still, but he didn't like that idea. We will see how it goes. I am really lucky to be with a teacher who can stay home in the summer, but I just hope he doesn't go crazy with the kids all the time. And I hope I don't expect too much.

Well I guess thats all for today. I need to write in here more often, but I forget! Plus, some things just seem insignificant, but I should remember that this is a way to document the girls growing up!
