Not only are toddler tantrums kind of the worst, but they tend to linger long after the offending child has grown up. For example, my mom loves to tell tales of my own toddler misadventures, like the time I was banned from dance class or how I screamed every time she washed my hair (for four years). Perhaps one of the annoying, frustrating, yet hilarious aspects of the entire ordeal is the undeniable fact that there are things only a tantrum-throwing toddler can get away with. Watching a mini-human act in a way that no other person would ever be allowed to act (well, usually) is kind of ridiculous. I mean, if you don't laugh, you'll start to cry.
Of course, the reason we give a pass to otherwise unacceptable toddler naughtiness is because little ones are only just beginning to understand appropriate behavior. They also still have trouble controlling their emotions and exercising any sort of impulse control, so it's kind of par for the toddler course that there will be more than a few meltdowns. Even when a partner (hint, me, hint) attempts to model good behavior and healthy responses to disappointment, we have to accept that small children are, more often than not, lacking the development to behave "perfectly" all the time.
So the next time your child throws an epic tantrum and attempts any of the following "crimes," just grab a pen (or a camera) and record the incident for posterity. Trust me when I say, this is something you're going to want to remind them of when they are all grown up.
