Loud Baby in a Mini Van

I felt very much like a typical mom today. You know the ones you see on television that are driving in their mini van and freaking out at the kids for being loud and obnoxious? That was me today. Justin wanted to make a “quick” trip to some electronic store to see about a dead battery in his computer. Let’s just say that there is no such thing as a quick trip for Justin to any electronic store.

So I waited and waited and waited and waited for what seemed like an eternity. Maisie was screaming her head off. Not necessarily crying, but screaming as if someone was torturing her. It was not pleasant to the ears. By the time Justin came out, I felt like doing something horrible to him. Maybe screaming loudly in his ear or punching him really hard, just to get some aggression out from waiting in a mini van with a screaming baby. I was a little on the bitchy side for a few moments, but eventually I calmed down. I did slap the car seat, which I think helped me quite a bit.

    That sort of stuff is the reason I am asking Santa for a punching bag for Christmas.
