Tantrum Produces Black Eye

by Kerry

My son gave me a black eye when he was a toddler throwing a tantrum. I remember when he was 2 years old and we were in Wal Mart. He of course did not get something he wanted and was upset. The screaming started at first, you know the kind where everyone looks at you and it is so embarrassing. He then began to throw himself on the floor, kicking screaming and crying.

I just couldn't take it anymore ( and of course we were at the back of the store).I finally just decided to leave so I picked him up and put him in the shopping cart. By this time the screams were worse. As I was almost out the door he took off his shoes and threw them at me. The shoes hit me right in the face......WOW! did that hurt. I mean you can't even imagine!! Not only that I actually received a black eye from the shoes hitting me. The funny thing was I had to later tell everyone who approached me how I actually received the black eye...... :)Yeah My two year old threw his shoes at me and I got a black eye. They probably thought I was lying because it sounded so outrageous. I can laugh about it now....

Thanks again for an Amazing Toddler Site!!

As a parent myself, I understand these things happen. All toddlers go through this phase but they soon get over it. What an interesting way to get a black eye.
