After a day like today.

After a day like today, I am so glad I am getting away tomorrow. Today a man yelled at Addi, and I was too much in shock, and too much of a push over to say anything back. I am kicking myself wishing I had had the guts to say something, he was so rude and unkind, there is NEVER a need to yell "shut up" at a two year old. Greg had left the table to get our food, and I am thankful he wasn't there to hear this guy yell at Addi. I don't think it would of ended well. Greg was of course livid when I told him, of course I was trying hard not to cry while I was telling him (I swear these days anything to do with my kids makes me cry). I wish I could go back in time and say something to that man, but really even at this moment have no clue what I would of said. I was wiped out after lunch but still had to hit up Target to get Greg the necessities to survive for three days without me, and to pick up my one bottle of allotted wine for the girls cruise. As the lady watched me struggle to load all my goods up on the register while Addi kept screaming and pulling every which way, she said to me "Are you sure you don't want more than one bottle, you look like you need a few." She was joking of course, and to tell you the truth she's probably right. These past few days, weeks, maybe even months have been so tough with Addi. I love her more than I can even put in words but goodness she is a very unhappy child these days. I am trying to stay patient and trying to talk through things, trying to be understanding, trying, trying, trying. But man she is "trying" me.

  1. Yes, seriously it's never okay to yell at someone's child. Hang in there! You're an awesome momma and hopefully little miss Addi will pass through this difficult phase quickly for you.
