HAPPY FRIDAY DARLINGS!
I'll be tackling Christmas shopping...at a mall....with a toddler...by myself this weekend! Among other fun things we have planned! Last weekend, I went to the mall with my mother-in-law and son and he had his first in public temper tantrum. It wasn't as tramatic or embarrassing as I had initially imagined..still not an ideal situation. I have always thought that I wouldn't EVER be THAT mean mother that watches their kid throw a fit in public. I imagined I would pick him up right away bc I don't want a scene and I want him to know he's loved. However, I let him throw a tantrum. He was kicking and screaming and crying and I let him play it out. About ten minutes later he was back to his happy self completely forgetting about the car he so desperately needed. I was at a mall with people I will never see again. Who cares what they think! What I did learn, however, is to not go to a crowded mall during nap time....You're never going to be in and out during the holidays!
Wish me luck! Hope everyone has a fabulous and holiday fun filled weekend! xoxo
