Luckily his snack calmed Little Prince down and he managed not to tantrum too much more. When Mr Messy came home and Little Prince asked if he could play with Princess Lollipop while me and Little Prince played a board game. Once Mr Messy had had a sit down and relax he played with Princess Lollipop in the lounge and me and Little Prince played Disney Trivial Pursuits in the dining room. We played two games and I won both, which made Little Prince angry all over again. However, he managed to just have a bit of a shout and moan but didn't lose his temper too much (he didn't throw the board and pieces!!). He moans that we don't play enough games with him, but it is so hard and stressful to keep him on an even keel when playing with him!
Once we'd finished playing I made the littlies their tea. And now they are having a relax while watching TV, hopefully Little Prince will stay calm and be able to settle down to sleep sooner than he did last night. He really could do with a good night's sleep to help his mood for tomorrow!!
We've just got a call from Drama Teen who is out with friends first to watch a film and then to have a meal together. She was saying she has just arrived at the restaurant, so she'll need picking up in an hour or so. Mr Messy is going to do the pick up duties, and he'll call at the local Chinese Takeaway on the way home for mine and his tea. Little Prince has asked us to save him the prawn crackers and battered chicken nuggets. He wanted noodles too, but we said we'd buy some and cook them for his tea one day this week, as they'd taste better than cold noodles from the night before!!
I tried to get Princess Lollipop settled for bed while Mr Messy was out collecting Drama Teen, with no success whatsoever! Perhaps she heard Mr Messy saying he was bringing Chinese food, which she LOVES, so she was waiting for that!?! Drama Teen was in a very good mood when she got home, and spent a while playing Aquadraw and then tea parties with Princess Lollipop. Little Prince will be so jealous as he is desperate for Drama Teen to play with him, but she finds him so hard to deal with she keeps refusing :-(
