The only time I've had to leave a store because my kids were acting out was last month when they threw simultaneous tantrums over shoes. We were in CVS and I had them try on some generic Crocs. Both of them wanted the hot pink pair that was way too small and they didn't take it well when I put the shoes back on the rack.
Today my mom presented Norah with her very own pair of pink faux-Crocs. I have never seen her get so attached to anything. She's currently in bed for the night wearing them, having pitched a fit when they were removed. This is after we let her bathe in them because she was so distraught in the bathtub without them. Eventually we'll have to set some limits on this relationship, but tonight we're picking our battles.
