Screaming Sophie..

Okay so today I had my very first screaming child experience. I have heard and witnessed plenty of screaming, squealing, snotty nosed, red faced, tear filled toddlers when I have been to the mall. I have also always been able to walk away from these toddlers thinking .. YIKES my kid will never act like that.. and the JOKES ON ME!!
As I was browsing the mens section trying to find Stephen some clothes for R&R .. Sophia has a massive break down. We are talking tears, snot, high pitched screams that sound like she has been traumatized but in all actuality I was just offering her some water and her blanky. I had people staring, shaking their heads and giving me what felt like "Your THAT mom"look. Any other time I would have walked to the car and called it quits but I was waiting on my mom and nephew so I had to just go with it. So I walked in circles shhhhhing her and trying to calm her down. Lets just say this didn't work. She continued to scream, kick , squeal and I continued to turn a brighter shade of red out of embarrassment. Finally, she calmed down and fell asleep but that short period of extreme toddler terror time brought a few things to light. First, I will never judge another parent EVER. Second, there are those who have no patients for upset children in public places but there are also plenty of people who give you that .. been there done that look. That is the look that gets you through these embarrassing and uncontrollable moments. Lastly, I realize this is just a sneak peek into the terrible two years yippie.

On a side note...during all this I was so frazzled I forgot to change Sophia's diaper(there goes my mom of the year award.. ) .. so after her nap when my nephew went to pick her up ,she proceeded to pee right through her diaper all over him soaking herself and giving my nephew a minor heart attack. Thank goodness we were at Target.. My nephew lathered himself up in their endless supply of hand sanitizer and I picked Soph up a new pair of pants and we were good to go. Lesson learned yet again...
