Do you ever feel like living with a toddler is about just surviving? Whether it’s chasing after them, asking their endless questions, navigating the world of temper tantrums or (still) dealing with their sleep issues, it’s a tough gig.

Some days (like today for me) is all about survival. My two-year-old decided to throw the world’s biggest tantrum last night… at 11:30pm. Yes at close to midnight, I was dealing with a writhing, screaming banshee of a child who didn’t know what she wanted, who she wanted it from and how she wanted to get it. The entire house woke up and we ended up sitting downstairs on the couch, eating a banana and watching a Lifestyle Food TV program about how to save more money doing the weekly shop. I’m not even kidding. Definitely not what you want to be doing on a weeknight…
