I was THAT mom. Ya know, the one carrying her screaming & crying child out of a store while everone watched. My 4 and a half year old has been just awful lately. From lying to arguing with me. I let her pick out two pairs of underwear at Kohls and she wanted to hold them while we looked at more stuff. Before I knew it, they had disappeared from her hands. We eventually found them but after 10 minutes of her arguing about standing next to me then thinking it was funny to hide behind things while I chased after her, I had enough. Picked her up and walked out while she screamed "Please mommy, I promise I won't be naughty!" Over and over and over again. I'm sure most people were feeling sorry for her and all I could think about is why is my child behaving this way and how I would probably be judging me too. Ugh.
