HALF TERM BREAK DOWN

9 Apr

OMG Yesterday had to be one of the hardest days yet! Little man almost killed me.

We went shopping ( If you read past post, you will find that shopping sometimes leads to trouble in my family ) But little man seemed to be on best behaviour, yes I was checking out the shops in Bromley town centre with a smile on my face. We went to Game little mans favorite shop, had some lunch, all was going well. We went to grab little man some new track suits. I also needed a few bits, I wanted some pjs and a top. 

“COME ON MUM HURRY UP”

Little man likes to head for what he wants, he becomes the boss when shopping. After a good half hour in the shop we hit the till. The Que was long and the shop was hot. I just wanted the sofa and a cuppa tea if I’m honest. 

“YOU HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU GOT MATE”

“YER MUMMY, ARE YOU”

” WELL NOT REALLY AS YOU WOULD NOT LET ME LOOK AT ANYTHING. BUT IT’S OK “

The next thing I knew he had dashed of and was heading for the stairs. 

“G COME BACK” I chased him down three floors. Once on the ground floor he picked up random items of clothing from there rails

“YOU WANT THIS? HAVE IT! ” 

“YOUR SELFISH MUM” He said this as he dashed items of clothing at me.

I have never seen him this bad, my face was burning red. I but the basket down and said lets go.

“PICK IT UP NOW MUM”

I refused and headed for the door.

“PLEASE MUM I’M SORRY” OK I weakened and gave in but as we waited again he began to rage and shout . I was shamed I wanted to cry but could only laugh. I don’t know why this was but I think it was nerves. Yes I have had stuff like this happen before but this was different his words were nasty. The whole shop stood and watched. When It was my turn to pay I was close to tears. 

“YOUR A GREAT MUM! MANY OTHER PARENTS WOULD OF LOST IT BY NOW” 

This is what the lady at the check out said to me. I think her words just about got me through it. I payed for my shopping, all the time little man stood behind me shouting pay for my clothes now. I could fell all the eyes, hundreds of eyes fixed on my next move. What was my next move ? Well it was simple I took his little basket of stuff from his hands ( He likes to have his own basket ) then I said NO!

“PAY IT NOW MUM” He even went on to swear at me. 

“NO, NO, NO”

As I turned to leave he grabbed the basket and dashed it onto the floor. My god I was going to cry. And yes I did once outside, I cried and cried. I phoned my husband, little mans dad. We got a cab home I wanted to stay in doors and hide. FOREVER.

    I’m so sorry that your outing turned out this way. You have amazing strength to keep it in control as well as you did.

    Wow. You have my sympathies. It’s something my wife and I face quite often (with both our boys) but I doubt we handle it with the same kind of grace and dignity that you did.
