Holy Meltdowns Batman!
My daughter is currently laying in the middle of the floor screaming at the top of her lungs. Why you ask? Well it started off with what I thought was a simple request. I should have known better. I just asked her to get dressed. That's all. I even let her pick out each item once I figured out that matching was not going to happen today. So from the undies to the jeans to the sweater dress to the mismatched shoes, each item was hand selected by Amelia with no input from dear old Mom. You'd think that would help her want to wear the outfit. of course that's not going to happen. She thinks a green froggy towel is a perfectly acceptable outfit to wear to playgroup and then to the OC airport to pick up the Grandma's. I love my kid and I know my friends and their kids would like to see us today. However, I don't think seeing her bare butt would make anyone happy. So here I sit trying to regain my composure while I prepare to do battle again. Really, it's not a big deal if we skip playgroup, they all understand. However I don't think my mom and grandma will understand if we skip the airport. And I refuse to take a buck naked kid into the airport. (Or let her ride in my car that way.) So wish me luck. And if this blog gets neglected for too long, you can assume I've given up the fight and I'm laying on the floor with her, screaming my lungs out. Cause seriously, if you can't beat em, join em!
