The mall trip!

Uh! What a day at the mall. All week I was planning on going to the mall on Friday with Carson to get alot of my Christmas shopping done. The car ride to the mall was perfect. He was listening to music and drinking his bottle. While I was going over the Christmas list in my head for the 1ooth time. We found a great parking spot and I thought "let the shopping begin. " Well, Carson had another idea... he was going to have a melt down. He did not want to sit in the coach. Each time I attempted to put him the coach he started crying and shaking his head No. Finally, after 10 minutes of crying he sat in his coach and we began to shop. We were going into our third store and the melt down started again. This time it was 10 times louder and he would not stop crying. Needless to say, I bought a few things a bath and body, and one gift card.

Sorry your day didn't go according to plan-maybe the noise in the mall bothered him? Does he like the coach normally?

Been there, been there, been there! There is a moment when you look back and laugh, I promise! Even though, so sorry for the meltdown. Wishing you luck if you brave the mall again!

Oh no!!! Poor Mommy!!!! Well hopefully that was the last of the meltdowns and Carson's shopping protest has ended!

I am becoming a big on-line shopper too...much easier, I can do it alone, and nobody is complaining that their feet hurt or they are tired or hungry. :) Know that this is very normal and comes and goes for the next...several years. :)
