Meltdown, Aisle 28!

Are you ever in denial that everyone is "REALLY staring at you" at the store because your toddler is SCREAMING BLOODY MURDER? Let's just say that when perfect strangers start ripping open the toys that they just purchased for their grand kids because a pregnant woman has completely lost control of her 19 month-old and is juggling all of her purchases in an effort to force said-tantrum-thrower into the stroller against her very will then you KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that "YES, THE ENTIRE STORE WAS STARING AT YOU AND CRITIQUING YOUR PARENTING SKILLS".

Life Lesson #940234: Don't take your toddler out on errands around nap-time the day AFTER you let him or her stay up until 10pm. It's just not a good idea.

They're probably just remembering what it was like when they were the ones with the screaming child. :)

There's this awesome drink at Sonic called a CreamSlush. It's basically like their flavored slushes but with their soft server ice cream mixed in as well. My favorite is the grape flavor, which reminds me a lot of the way the grape soft serve at Pineapple Whip used to taste like.

Love you!
