Sometimes a kind word can go a long way. Maybe you'll see this.
I was in Shaws on Thursday afternoon, and you had your hands full with a little guy who just plain wasn't happy. And what a great set of pipes! For any of us who have navigated the grocery store in similar straits, you have one goal in mind: get the ______that you had to get, and GET OUT THE DOOR.
There's nothing quite like running the gauntlet of the checkout aisle while your child is "singing". You handled yourself with such patience and grace. You were clearly in charge, and of yourself first, then your son. I was impressed! Don't get me wrong, it was a little cringeworthy. But you took care of business with real class.
Good for you! Hang in there, girl. You've got this.
