There were several melt downs before we left. It got to the point where I had to say to her " if you don't start listening, then we can't go to the play date. Will you listen to mama?".
Then we have to skip the play date. That will make Cousins Daughter sad. Will you start listening?
So we went... Few more melt downs. But play dates are fun for mama, too! I didn't want to punish myself, my cousin's wife, and their daughter all because Daughter was being a fuss machine.
Ordinarily I wouldn't have attempted Walmart. But we really needed milk and veggies. We got out of the car (in the rain!) and she had an immediate fit and dropped to the wet ground.
Grrrrr. Then she fell asleep in the car
