Yesterday was more than challenging for me! This little one pictured above was in rare form! We went to an activity on base and she threw herself on the ground IN FRONT OF CHRISTOPHER'S BOSS and started crying! I made a comment about her getting that from her father and he just laughed (Thanks Al, you kept me from crying) I wanted to melt into a million pieces as I felt like everyone was staring at me! She wasn't understanding why she couldn't bounce with the other kids but they were twice her size and knew she would end up hurt! I found something to distract her but then another fit came when we had to leave . . . . BREATHE KIM, BREATHE!
We went to dinner last night with some of the guys from base and things were going well! I packed crayons, squinkies and even her ipod. When she couldn't find her Daddy . . . HOLY COW! Of course we were surrounded by my husbands co-workers AGAIN and there she sat, crying as I was right in the middle of feeding Emma! We didn't stay much after that fit but came home and wanted to cry! But wait . . . I am NOT the only Mother on earth so why do people look at me like I am crazy, right along with my screaming toddler! Lend a hand, give a hug, something, just don't stare at me like I don't know how to do my job (even when at these times, I question myself)
