    You poor thing! You really should be getting sympathetic "we've all been there" looks from other mothers.

    I read in a baby book once, that you aren't really a fully-fledged mother until you have experienced a toddler doing an over-the-top public tantrum! It always made me giggle and feel better about being humiliated and judged in public!!

    Don't worry about the old women, I am sure there were lots of people feeling sorry for you Hope your day improves

    At the shops the other day I saw a little boy (about 6-7) chuck a major wobbly and storm out of Coles. His mother let go of their full trolley and chased after him, grabbed him by the shirt and said very loudly "I am not accepting that behaviour! You start respecting me right now!" I was like woaaaah what a woman hahaha. The kid was soooo humiliated it was hilarious and I noticed a few people looked at her disapporvingly. Not me, I thought she was fab.

    Wasn't me either but I would have supported you. Someone did the same to me except nobody was being rude. DD threw a HUGE tantrum in the foodcourt at the shops during the school holidays and ended up crawling along the floor screaming (she was 2 at the time so could actually walk lol) and backed up under a table that had a lady with 2 older kids sitting at it. I was so mortified that they were being interrupted by my screaming toddler that I apologised to the lady, tears all welling up ready to go... and she said 'I feel for you, don't worry about it! We've all been there, I remember what it was like' - I could have hugged her!
