Last week we went with some friends to McDonald’s for lunch so the kids could run around in the play place. Adeline climbed part way up in the play structure and got freaked out and couldn’t make her way back down, and couldn’t be coaxed down, and then started screaming — shrieking — at the top of her lungs and I had to crawl up in there to get her out and everyone in the entire restaurant was staring at us. Then Beatrice started crying because she was upset by all the noise and I couldn’t calm her down and when I tried to tell Adeline we were leaving she couldn’t hear me because she was in that damn play structure again and it was so loud in there and I thought I was totally going to lose it and neither of us even got to finish our lunch.
But right now the girls are both sleeping. I’ve got The Office. I’ve got Newman-O’s. Everything’s going to be ok.
Here’s the original Right Now post.
