Fife & Drum Muster {Wordless Wednesday 6/22}


Actually, this is the parade before the Fife and Drum Muster. We missed the "Muster" part due to a lovely tantrum that was MUCH louder than the fifes, drums, muskets, and cannons. I'm instituting the "If you flip out and have a tantrum because you must hold my hand across the street, we're going home - N.O.W." method of parenting right now. Not a lot of fun since Little Guy is working on the "I'm a Big Boy and can do everything all by myself and I don't need to hold your hand ever again and, by the way, you can go home if you'd like because I can take care of myself" method of toddlerhood. The two methods just don't go together...


"Yeah, I'm here. I'm not going to have fun, but you can't say I didn't participate in this family activity. When is this thing over, anyway?"

Waiting for the "marching men."





Of course, no parade is complete until the police car rolls by!

HA! I remember those tantrum days well. Thankfully they subside!

Happy WW! Looks like it was a fab parade :)

So question. Which one was having the tantrum? ; )
The bottom pic looks like your oldest perked up before the parade was over though. That makes me happy. <3

It looks like it all worked out in the end. Good for you for holding strong with him.
Love how cool your older one looks. "Ya, I'm here, but its not a family thing. Got it?!"
