My kid made me cry
Unfortunately it was out of frustration and not out of joy. I took her with me to run errands so the husband could get some work done for his flight tonight. This is our first full day home so I know she is still adjusting. She didn't get the best night of sleep because she kept waking up screaming. I am sure she was confused because I know I was confused when I woke up. I couldn't remember whose house I was in. The first few stops went great, and then I took her to the dreaded Wal Mart to get groceries. It was insane. I tried to bribe her to sit in the cart with the iPad. That worked for about 5 minutes before she was doing all she could to climb out. So I let her walk and put the grocery items in the cart for me. That worked for about 2 minutes because then she started wandering off. Eventually it turned into a game of chase all over the grocery section. I ended up leaving with only half my items and tears in my eyes. I was so frustrated with her even though I know her acting out is a result of our trip. She has been pretty nasty the last few hours, but thankfully she is napping. I have no clue how to handle this age of 2. I hope I figure it out soon.
