Remember how I wrote a few days ago about my kid having a public temper tantrum and being mortified but it’s all good because it gets easier? (Read here: It Gets Easier.) OK, well one blogger, Cathy Brockman, shared her own temper tantrum story…
Here’s what she wrote:
My daughter was 4 and was going to an Assemblies of God church regularly. We were in Walmart and she wanted something at the check out. I told her no and the tantrum began. She laid on the floor wailing. I jerked her a up and whispered menacingly in her ear…’When we get home I am going to kill you.’ Of course I meant no such thing, but she stood up, threw her arms in the air, and commence praying for me loudly. ‘Lord please save my mom; she is going to kill me and that means she will go to hell. I’ll be ok. I’m a child I will be in heaven, but I want my mommy there with me; so can you forgive her before she does?’ I was mortified!
OMG I was literally CRYING after reading that. Cathy just wrote a book. Here’s the link if you want to check it out: Luke’s Dragon
Thanks, Cathy, for making me laugh!
