i dont have anyone to help me out, ive done my xmas shopping online. I had to head to the post office to express post something this morning. Had to take the kids with me. It was busy and dd was misbehaving.
My question is what do you do when your 3 yr old doesnt listen? people everywhere behaving like wild animals, walking up your behind, no manners, no respect around.
DD was walking beside me, but singing...loudly, i told her a million times "beautiful singing dd, but please use your quiet voice, its a bit loud".
A woman walked past and said to dd "Shut up, kid."
DD wanted to go on a ride, i told her i have no money today and said lets go....maybe another day.
She wouldnt move, so i did what i usually do and started walking off telling her "see ya, im going...." (she usually follows) ad she did follow me, she was about 10 steps behind me ad i kept looking back and waiting for her to catch up.
A woman yelled out across the centre "OI YOU, OI...OI.....IS THAT YOUR KID?......i said yes (bloody scared outa my wits!)
"TRY WALKIG WITH YOUR KID, THATS HOW THEY GO MISSING YA KNOW, NO COMMON SENSE DO YA?"
I said she's fine, i know where she is.
then she really arked up "NO YA DONT, SHE WAS BEHIND YA, YA MORON!".
i was so embarrassed. ive lost all confidence in taking my kids out during this awful xmas period. I got in the car and burst into tears.
bad outing, yes it was.
