i am *that* mom

February 10, 2009

you know, the mom you see in a store with a screaming, tantruming toddler. the one who is hissing at said child through clenched teeth, telling her to just sit down and be quiet pleasepleaseplease for one more minute and i swear we are going home soon. the mom who is ignoring the stares of other shoppers looking on in abject horror as she pushes the stroller containing her writhing, protesting toddler, pretending that there is nothing to see here. nosiree…just look the other way as my baby pulls entire racks of clothing onto the floor, kthxbye. she is usually a very agreeable child, at least in public. today was a different story, though i suppose if there is a silver lining to be found in all this, this new feisty behavior will go a long way in keeping me away from target.
