SO I have never had a problem bringing these kids anywhere to anything nothing. They love the pool, parks, stores and the library. Other then a few "Do we have to go?" "Why right now?" lines I have never had to deal with one of the 5 taking a full blown fit. Well, today it happened!
We dropped Laylay off at school hour in the library and the girls (Bean and Alora) went down stairs for music and book story time. Everything was going great! The girls were singing, dancing smiling just enjoying the whole thing (like last week.) All of a sudden Miss Alora-Sara decided that she wanted a drink. No you can not Alora-Sara we have 6 mins left. She ran away from me out the door. Ugh I was thinking. Got up, got her and brought her back with her laughing at me like I was a joke! I was so angry but I kept my cool. Second time she gets up and runs out. I get out there take her by the hand and BAMMMMMM...
Kicking, screaming, crying even spitting! I do NOT tolerate spitting! I was so angry, sad, upset, worried and embarrassed all at once!
I understand this happens on a daily basis with some parents, but this has never happened to me before? What do I do? I always ignored the families that had this problem because I feel like it is not my place to judge or as long as the child is safe worry. I still feel this way. However I am not to concealed in this snotty town. Purple hair, tattoos, fat and loud I am not "OK" here. So here I am with "that" kid. I stayed outside the room with her made her sit on the floor and wait for it to be over while she cried and kicked (Bean was still in there dancing away.) None of the children noticed this fit Alora was taking but bet your butt the other Moms did. Dirty looks, words and pointed fingers really got me angry. I was a big girl and just ignored. Bean came out and we headed upstairs to get Laylay who was still in class and Alora was still screaming.
I took all three girls walked out and put them in the car while listening to Bean and Laylay tell me their favorite part of library, all while Alora was screaming.
So did I do the right thing? Was I to harsh? Should the other Moms care? I believe I did do the right thing, I was not to harsh, and the other Moms should mind their perfect little business. Because I am sorry but your kids don't poop roses.
What do you do in this kind of situation!?
