Whether it’s a lack of sleep, overwhelming emotions, or a child’s odd obsessions, you’ll be able to connect to these horrific tantrums on some level. They may not have been humorous at the time, but they’ve given us all a good laugh now.

This turned into a very long tantrum on the bathroom floor…” -Anonymous Mom
