OMG This is sooo like my 1yo, Allie. If she wants something, she'd fake-cry. If I ignore her, she'll stalk me with her fake-cries (with matching pouty lips)--but no tears. If she gets what she wants, she'll laugh. If she doesn't, she'll fake it til she gets tired, or once she realizes that I'm not buying her cute little drama. Hahaha!
Haha! Tantrums always need an audience. The bigger the audience, the bigger the tantrum.
This is all pretty new to me so please feel free to share your mommy wisdom!
