Tyrannical Threes

My son will be three in October. This brings with it the excitement that he will now be ready for a lot of the toys you see at the store. It also seems to be bringing the added joy of the Tyrannical Threes. They've started showing themselves and I have friends who tell me the Terrible Twos were just the beginning. I went to pick him from daycare on Tuesday and it took me 25 minutes to get him in the car seat and head home. He screamed and cried the entire way home. Once there my little boy returned. Yesterday we had another tantrum where he cried, screamed, kicked and hit for about 30 minutes. My crime? Trying to put clothes on him. My husband, bless him, was able to finally do the deed and we were on our way out the door when, (and this is totally not his fault) he slipped on a spot in the floor and came up all wet. Promptly we got him back into the room to change clothes and the tantrum started all over again. I finally managed to get him in the only a diaper.
I was able get him dressed outside the front of the house where he stays. After that he was his normal rambunctious self. So it seems we are heading toward a much bigger roller coaster than we were on previously. All I can say is we better buckle up tight.
Talk to you later.
