And the worst part about it is that she's only a brat when we are out running errands.
When we are home, she's a happy kid that is content.
She has her toys, she plays, she's great.
Put her in the car and suddenly she's demanding we go to a toy store and if we don't go to store with toys, she's telling me she's starving, or she wants her Daddy.
If I tell her no, she repeats herself a thousand times driving me bananas.
Now, I love this kid (both of my kids) more than life itself but, dammit, this sudden annoyance makes me want to stay home and never take her anywhere, ever again.
I turn into Mean Mommy with the constant questioning, the tears, the everything.
I keep telling myself that this has to be a phase because just a few weeks ago she wasn't like this. A few weeks ago she never did this.
Sure, she asked for toys (what kid doesn't) but never to this degree. Never with the amount if repetition, the amount of tears and fuss.
I'm praying it's nothing more than a phase because I can't stay holed up forever at the barn.
Someone has to get the groceries.
And it's definitely not the Mister.
