Now for the bad, it goes something like this..."No! No! Noooooooooooooo!"
Just trying to execute a simple task, grocery shopping, which we have done countless times before without incident. Dare I say it's been fun in the past to have both of them with me. Today however was a totally different story.
First I cruised the parking lot looking for a parking spot close to a shopping cart corral with a special race car cart (the kind with the steering wheels for the kids). There were two - a blue one and a yellow one - so I thought everyone was going to be super happy. As I unloaded the girls I watched another mom claim the blue cart..."uh-oh. But we should still be fine there is that yellow one."...WRONG. Apparently today only the blue one would do. Violet proceeded to pitch a fit like I have only seen on rare occasions. There were lots of tears and screaming and kicking and turning stiff as a board, refusing to ride in the cart. After trying all my best tricks for calming a toddler I realized it just wasn't going to happen today. I loaded them back into the car and we went home with no groceries. Two words: Nap Time.
