Why does it seem like I am the only one with toddlers that are completely against whatever it is we are doing? Seriously, I had one of those "I am selling my kiddos on eBay" days:P What a horrible Mother I am, right? I took my kiddos to the zoo...bad Mommy! You would think I was dragging them to get their teeth drilled.
Don't even consider holding hands. I kid you not, Miss Peach actually tries to beat on my hand until I "LET GO!". Really, is it so wrong to hold your child's hand? I must be a monster! God forbid I should actually let go of Miss Peach's or The Little Man's hand...They are off like a shot. No looking back, no stopping, just off and running. Let me tell ya, Miss Peach is her Mommies daughter. She is a fast little bugger!
So, we spent about an hour at the zoo. Then we spent about 20 min. splashing at the fountain outside the zoo. Mean old Mommy, letting her kiddos play. Then, it was time to go home for lunchies. I hate when kiddos pull the "my feet don't work" card! I hate it!
Both of them went limp. I can not physically carry the team home. It is just not possible. Fine, I drag them screaming across the park. Finally, they get up and walk...finally! As this whole scene plays out, everyone else is having a perfectly lovely time at the zoo/park. Children are listening to their parents, holding their hands, happily obeying their caregiver. While I am in the middle of some "how not to parent" documentary:P Ugh, I was just disgusted...plllllt!
It can't just be me. I can not be the only one raising sweet, adorable, complete monsters! It just always seems that way when the sh*t is hitting the fan...I just feel doomed, they outnumber me!
