I want to kiss whomever invented these
Anyway, her fussing started into a full-on tantrum as we passed the books. This Wally world actually has a pretty good book section. So I grabbed one, and handed it to her. Yes, I bribed my child to end a tantrum. But the fact that it WASN'T candy has got to mean something, right? Of course, that means everyone else had to get books too. Again, it's got to be good that it wasn't candy, right?
People always give me looks in stores like I've got four heads instead of four kids. When did four kids become a lot? Maybe my perspective is skewed coming from a family of seven, but honestly, is four really all that unheard of? Thankfully they were all generally well behaved today, aside from Allison's original fussiness. Because sometimes it cascades and then everyone is tantruming. *That's* when four becomes a lot. But not today. Today it was actually kind of fun. We were buying ingredients for ice cream sundaes for dessert. Everyone got to choose something. Hopefully they'll still be that happy after dinner.
