Like a wild animal....

Two year old Kid #2 is on a mission to drive Mama completely nut-so. While shopping the other day at Zellers (like the Canadian version of Target), he refused to sit in the cart, tried to launch himself out of the shopping cart and continually tossed away what I tried to buy. (Maybe this is a new way to save ca$h?) 
 If I steered the cart too close to the shelves he'd grab anything he could get his hands on. Like a toddler-style bull in a China shop. 


I'd suppose it would be kinda amusing to someone watching it all go down....a grown woman trying to wrestle away a pair of rubber boots, pack of paper plates, bag of gummi bears, etc. etc. away from a 2 year old animal boy who's trying to grab every and anything.  But it's not funny.  It makes me want to start drinking wine. Alone. Everyday. 
Meanwhile, lady #1, 2 and 3 in line to pay thought that it was funny and cute when kid threw out of the cart and shattered on the ground in the isle a jar of strawberry jam and then followed it by tossing ON TOP of  jam/broken glass the pair of pajamas I was "trying" to buy. Guess I didn't really need those PJ's....

So the next time you see a Mama trying to "manage" her child, don't chuckle. Have pity, give a smile of understanding (and not a goofy, dumb-arse smirk) and know that someday that could be you. Karma's a bitch yo.

Should you be wondering what Kid #2 looks like, I've enclosed some I.D. shots to help better identify him....

You made me laugh so hard! I know how you feel - my little guy gets like this too! Is it in their Greek blood? :-) Ha HA! I hope you have a great weekend!

Aww.. Bless your heart!
Sometimes it takes everything I've got not to ditch my kids in a store when they're being brats.. HA!

I love the way you write!
Rolling on the floor laughing- hey I´m allowed to because I´m also a boy mom so I know what you are talking about!
Yesterday was one of those days, hubby was on a business trip so I was alone with the boys. Bedtime=suicide hour, but with a little bit of prosecco I was fine ;) xx

If it makes you feel any better...mine is the exact same way!! He has way more arms that I do!

I always put him in the stroller for shopping trip like that...Yop and Goldfish keep him busy and content :O)

I wonder if the chuckling women are simply showing they aren't being judgy?

i feel for you. i have meltdowns when my dogs act crazy and i didn't even birth those. i imagine it will be 100 times more stressful when i have a real life kid of my own.

the only moms that get dirty looks from me are the ones who call their kids names and treat them like parasites. i HATE when i see kids asking harmless question and the mom says something like "shut up stupid."

and when i say they get "dirty looks", i really mean i just look away. because usually they're too scary and could probably kill me.

My son at 2 1/2 knocked down a large glass jar of applesauce. The only person it splattered on was ME. It was literally like....CLEAN UP IN AISLE FOUR over the loud speaker. He laughed!

Oh dear. I'm sorry about your shopping excursion! If it makes you feel any better my nephew tends to grab things off of shelves and run out of the store with them. He's a 2 year old shoplifter.

Yikes! As much as mine cry I'm glad they don't grab everything in site, just a few things. I do think about wine, by myself moreso these days, lol.

Kristin said...

Sounds like EVERY single one of my Target trips with the dude. HA!

Oh goodness girl, bless your heart! This post made me laugh and also made me want to send you a great big bottle of champagne to help you de-stress : )

Oh this made me laugh so hard. I have an almost 3-year old that does the same thing!! I love your comment about wanting to drink wine alone. SO FUNNY!
