So last week, I nearly left my kid at the grocery store in the hopes that someone would take her home with them and I wouldn’t have to HEAR HER SCREAMING AT ME ANYMORE.
This week? Much better. Barely a whimper all morning (except for when the gymnastics teacher’s little brat daughter PINCHED MY KID’S LEG for no reason. GAH.) (and no, of COURSE I didn’t say anything to the teacher.) (I’m already regretting that.)
Because Maggie was such a good girl while we were out shopping after gymnastics, her reward was lunch at Applebee’s, which just happens to be her favorite place. Even a waiter recognized us because we’re there so often, and he knows what she orders every time- grilled cheese.
I’m thinking she was a happy camper, what do you think?
(Please excuse the crappy quality, Blackberries are not known for their stellar video-taking capabilities.)
I nearly peed my pants trying not to laugh out loud at her while I was taping.
So it’s obvious, right? She knew that last week I was at the end of my rope, so she’s going to make me let my guard down now by being all cute and charming.
Dammit, it’s working.
