She'll be mine. I'm fairly terrified for our upcoming trip to Disney World.
We went out to lunch to celebrate my parents' anniversary, dad's birthday, and sister in law's birthday. We went to a "fancy" restaurant for us. No crayons and clothe napkins. So it was pretty fancy for us. The kids played bumper cars in the booth. Annoying but it was ok. Then the whining started. Caitlin complaining Davey was touching her despite her practically sitting in his seat. Finally I realized my mistake of letting them sit together. I moved Davey and become the buffer zone. Then Caitlin complains about her dinner. She ordered grilled cheese but it was not up to her high standards. She does eat enough to order dessert. She orders strawberry cheesecake but freaks out when the glazed strawberries touch whip cream. I try to wipe them clean but she is inconsolable.
This lunch made me question my ability to parent. It was so miserable. I felt like a failure because of the way she was behaving. Caitlin can somehow take a fun event and make everyone around her miserable. There is only so much whining a parent can take.
I'm scared that on our upcoming trip to Disney that she will still be miserable. It is too late to change our plans now. So wish me luck that Caitlin can be happy at the happiest place on earth.
