Yesterday I dragged boy to the grocery store with me to be mean and cruel. No actually he was willing because he's got some yummy smelling ribs in the smoker as we speak so he needed the meat. We were barely past the produce when I move my cart so a lady could pass me. Then I notice this lady is not alone and is soon followed by her young duckling who is about two seconds from a full melt down. I stopped bagging my bell pepper to watch this preschooler's persistence as she threw back her head and screamed "BUT I WANT IT!". Boy and I weren't sure if we were more impressed by this mama duckling's cool or the Oscar winning performance by said duckling.
And then when we thought it was all over here comes the third in the bunch, a defeated dad, who as he passes us stops and offers up some wisdom to boy..."Take my advice, do not have children".
