We are dealing with baby temper tantrums. Working hard on the "distract and present with new situations and objects strategy" but it's getting really hard. Tonight I came home from work to find husband completely wiped out. His face drawn and haggard he told a horror story of the trip to Costco where she screamed at an unearthly pitch during the entire drive there and then refused to sit in the grocery cart. I marvel at his ability to stack the cart with bulk groceries while holding our energetic baby.
Tonight I took her to the store to buy an avocado, yogurt and wheat tortillas (I stuck to my list!!!). I elected to hold her with one arm and basket in the other - I know, I know, a Hotsling is needed! At the check out she made a pass for my wallet which I was anticipating and foiled her grab at which she screamed, flailed and - giggled? The ladies behind us distracted her with goo goo eyes. Incredibly grateful I thanked them profusely.
