Lesson for Mom and Dad

8 Mar

Tonight at Fred Meyer, we let Kaeden get out of the cart to pick out a special movie. We were there getting boring stuff, like printer paper and hangers, and he was exceptionally good. He was so cute, examining the back of each movie to see which he wanted and finally settled on this Diego movie.

Go Diego Go! - Safari Rescue

We then told him that he needed to hop back into the cart so that we could check out and leave. OH NO…that wasn’t happening. With a joyous shriek and tons of giggles he bolted for the door! I gave chase, but didn’t catch up until he had already set off the alarm, which he thought was hilarious! He especially liked the ‘beep beep beep’ it made. Everyone seemed to get a kick out of it, but mom and dad learned a lesson…don’t let the toddler out of the cart at the store, no matter how good he is being. 

If we were better at disciplining him, we would have put the movie back. But we are at home now, watching it before bed. At least we gave our favorite checker a laugh, who was there with her husband and little one.

Maybe we should start taking his leash to the store with us, we’ve only used it once or twice, this may be exactly the stage it was meant for!?

    That is totally funny…however, I am sure that if it were me…I would not have laughed at the moment…I am also pretty sure that Jack would not have gotten the movie…You are nice…I have had to be the “mean mommy” lately in order for him to “get it”. It is actually working pretty well, the melt downs are shorter and he is able to comply sooner. Was the movie good? worth purchasing?

    Oh Darby, I know! We are way too nice! The movie is pretty good, Diego is a good learning cartoon. He really likes the movie, so I guess it was worth buying. However, we are definately going to work on being a little meaner, he needs it!
