Wrong side of the bed? Can we really chalk up bad behavior to this idea? Ehh... well NO but at least it sounds good. I talking about full blown crying/sobbing/tears here people
This was as we were loading up in the van to go to school - sorry, alarm has been set and door is closed. Please try to remember your accessory tomorrow.
2. Cart at HT
We were getting flowers not filling up a shopping cart PLUS I specifically parked on the side of the lot that has the flowers RIGHT AT THE ENTRANCE so we could go fast as possible. We'll get a cart next time
3. Crackers at Swimworld
Sorry you don't need Peanut Butter crackers at Swimworld at 4:45. I'll get you a pack to take for your snack tomorrow and if you don't stop crying about it then I'll take them for snack tomorrow.
4. Jibbe's car being broken down

If that did not wear you out.... While I did NOT meltdown over this... Seriously people!
|Thanks Harris Teeter for the Customer with Child Parking Spots.... Now if you could only enforce it!|
DEAR PEOPLE OF ROCKY MOUNT WHO APPARENTLY CANNOT READ:
THIS SIGN INDICATES THAT YOU MAY PARK IN THIS SPOT IF YOU HAVE A CHILD OR HERE'S A ZINGER - CHILDREN. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A CHILD(REN) OR ARE NOT PREGNANT AND 'WITH CHILD', DON'T PARK IN THESE RESERVED PARKING SPOTS. I WILL STARE YOU DOWN, YEAH, STARE YOU DOWN AS I WALK MY 29-WEEK PREGNANT SELF, CARRYING MY 18-MONTH OLD AND MY PURCHASES, WHILE CLINGING TO THE ARM OF MY 3 YR OLD.
Here's the kicker folks, when I pulled in there was a couple who did not have kids with them walking to their car that was parked in that spot and when I came out there was a woman who also did not meet the 'having a child standard' who was walking in.
Okay... done. I'm better. It's all out of my system. Going to cross stitch.
There must have something in the air- T had one heckuva bad day today!ReplyDelete
Whoa man.... meltdowns have the potential to totally wear a mama (or a papa) down - grinding and grating on one's very last nerve. I think I need to do a post on toddler meltdowns vs preschooler meltdowns and how I have come to understand dealing with them. I used to get upset but then I realized that I am only making the situation worse by adding an emotionally charged person to the already emotional situation so now I don't fight it... I just ride the wave and take privileges away along the wayDelete
