I love my kids, but sometimes going to places, like the grocery store, can be a challenge! There are moments when one child will be running down the aisles, while the other one will be throwing things in my cart, or repeatedly saying, “Can I have that Mom? Please! Can I have that Mom! Please! Please!”
I am usually the Mom you can hear saying, “Shhhh…shh…please just be quiet and you might get a treat. Okay, just get the treat if you promise to be quiet.”
When I go to the store alone the experience is so different. I am relaxed, I can take my time, and I almost have a zen like spa experience.
If you are a parent, caregiver, teacher, guardian, I am sure you can relate!
