My two year old is well known for her tantrums. Her latest thing is screaming BOGEY at the top of her voice, kicking our much suffering dog then throwing herself dramatically to the floor. Slightly better than shouting ‘I hate you mummy, you’re a BAGEL!’ in the middle of Sainsbury. But still not great.
So on our family quest to avoid another one of her episodes, we tip-toe round her, giving her pretty much what ever she wants. Hoping this ‘terrible twos’ phase will magically end soon when she hits 3. You never know.
Well, although my spelling is pretty awful you’ll be pleased to read it’s not actually about potty training (although it does leave a lot to be desired).
In moments of madness, nothing quite calms a volcanic size eruption in our house as reaching for the frozen Birdseye (other brands are available!). So I’m wondering if anyone else’s kids are eased by the strange sensation of one of these frozen little gems bursting on their tongue? They seem to douse the fire inside her angry little body and make everything cool and calm once more.
So all’s fair in love and war. The toddler tantrums CAN be controlled. What’s the point of the post? She’s been eating them for a couple of years thanks to advice from a friend when she was cutting teeth (frozen peas are great for teething by the way). But there on the bag I have recently discovered. Do not eat raw. Surely they are just peas? Frozen? Ingredients is 100% peas. Fresh peas are great for you.
Can anyone tell me? I’ve searched online and am now very educated in the world of peas (thanks Yes Peas! – Had no idea they were so versatile!) But found nothing concrete.
