I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream 8/31 #sol17
My answer, neither. I picked her up like a sack of rice. She immediately began screaming, flailing her arms, screaming bloody murder, flopping around all over my arms as I tried desperately to hold her and speed walk to the car. Suddenly it seemed so much farther away.
As I tried to gracefully deposit my child into her car seat, she arched her back, making it next to impossible to buckle her in. As I tried to talk to her and calm her down, she screamed louder and louder. If there was anyone within a two mile radius, I felt that all eyes were staring at me, "that mom."
And then I shut the door and climbed into the driver's seat and the tears stopped and the screaming stopped and the kicking and flopping ended.
That 'scene' was certainly one I had witnessed many times with other parents and their children.
Lucky me, now I'm one of the main characters, and I get to work with an academy award winning actress.
