The Sour Patch Kid Phase

We're all familiar with Sour Patch Kids -- the candies that are first sour, then turn sweet. We're even more familiar with the Sour Patch Kids commercials on TV, particularly the one where the life-size candy cuts off a young girl's hair (the sour phase), then apologetically hugs the girl (the sweet phase).
When these commercials aired, I never expected that my (then) baby, Skeeter (not her real name), would eventually enter what we've now coined "The Sour Patch Kid Phase." Of course, my two-year old doesn't have access to scissors, so there's no hair cutting (yet). But lately we've witnessed some pretty impressive tantrums, immediately followed by episodes of surprising sweetness -- that have left me confused...

LOVED the post, Heather! Gosh, I can totally relate right now. Kennedy was being particularly persnickety the other day and I said to here "Why are you so grumpy?" and she very matter of factly told me "I'm not grumpy, mama, I'm tired." Ok then. Haha.
