Sometimes this parenting gig is hard. Actually, a lot of the time it is hard. Paul has tantrums when I give him the "wrong" sippy cup in the morning. Or when the "wrong" basketball team is playing on TV. Or when he wants to eat apple sauce with a spoon and I God forbid gave him a pouch. Sometimes he gets sad when he has to put on socks, or get in his car seat, or drink milk, or not hit the dog, or stop flushing the toilet 673 times. Sometimes he throws a fit when we have to get out of the bath, or stop drawing on the wall with crayons, or clean up his toys, or wear pants.
