What are some of your recent memorable meltdown moments?

Lately I've been patting myself on the back because my girls haven't really had any meltdowns since they turned three. No screaming or flipping out, just sulking and occasional loud crying, but never anything out of control. Then one of my mommy friends said, wait until they're four - "terrible twos" and "fearsome fours" are called that for a reason!

Then yesterday happened. We went on a fire station visit with a playgroup, and Lucy would NOT enter the station. Remember, her dad is a firefighter, and she's visited him at work many times. So it baffled me. She was screaming, NO NO NO MOMMY NO!!!!!!! and was totally frantic. She eventually calmed down but it took a while. What the heck? She never did tell me what the matter was.

Later, we stopped at the nursery, just on a whim. Leigh said she wanted to go home, and Lucy agreed, so I drove away. 2 minutes later, Leigh started pitching an absolute fit because she wanted to go back. We were next to another nursery, so I pulled in, but she said NO, THE OTHER NURSERY and started screaming and bawling. Then both kids were screaming and bawling. No the other nursery! No this nursery! I ended up going home. The nursery owner was laughing (he knows us). You could hear the screaming everywhere even though the windows were rolled up and we never got out of the car. Please tell me age 4 isn't this way all year?

Max has meltdowns at least 5 times a day over the smallest things. He will cry hysterically because he needs a tissue (I kid you not). I had him a tissue or tell him to get one and the water works stops. We ignore all of them but he still has them. He is really a good kid besides the whining and crying. We need to leave the playground, I get "OK" I had him milk when he wanted juice (even though he asked for milk!) and all hell breaks lose for 30 seconds.

Tommy has been having blow-ups lately over very silly things.

Yesterday it was that he wanted to wear a specific pair of shorts--that were in the washer! He cried (and screamed and carried on) for about 25 minutes! We explained that the shorts were being washed--and therefore very wet--in the washer and that he would have to pick something else to wear, but he didn't care. Meltdown for 25 minutes. We ignored it.
