How to turn around a fuss bucket

Tonight I turned fussing around with a joke I heard fussing so I asked "is that a fuss bucket I hear? Are you a bucket of fuss?" much laughter and "YES"
I usually use the "if you're fussing that means you need a nap" but the laughter way was so much more fun & effective. What are ways you turn your toddler's fussing around?


  1. Depending on why he's fussing I can turn his mood around with a funny face and a tickle attack or a giant squishy hug - we've also done the "ROAAAAARRR" the grumpies out and once he starts roaring I jump and make like he scared me which gets him laughing :) Miss you!
