As an infant, my daughter was so calm, happy, and easy-going.  While she still is all those things, a touch of drama has entered our lives.  

I thought for sure that we were going to escape the drama, but just before she turned 1, she began to show a bit of a temper.  At first, she would forcefully throw herself backward, which always ended with her head slamming into whatever was behind her.  It didn't take long for her to fine tune her method.   

Step One:  Get mad.

Stefanie is a stay-at-home mom to three wonderful children.  She spends her days chasing them around, usually with her camera in her hand.
