I have learned....the hard way......that taking my kids to IKEA is NO fun...for anyone!
Don't let those smiling faces fool you! Every step through the store they complained!
The highlight for them???
It was one of those trips where I had a mini-meltdown and grouched the whole way back to the car...."Can't Mommy ever have your full cooperation just ONCE when I am doing something for me?!? How many times do I have to walk through the Lego aisle at Walmart???"
I think that I then forbade them to speak for the next half hour in the car....YEP! A mini-mommie-meltdown!
Have you ever had one of those?
