OMG this child is going to be the death of me! Every single thing we do is a struggle these days it seems. The main problem is that she is the ultimate dwaddler. We can be completely ready to go and yet it will still take us 15 minutes to get into the car because she will suddenly need to get a certain toy, or decides she wants to wear another pair of shoes, or she has to go potty (after having asked her repeatedly for 30 minutes prior).
I know it sounds like I should just be able to tell her we can't get the toy or change shoes right now, but then she will go into meltdown mode and throw such a fit it will still take her 15 minutes to get into the car, and I will feel guilty and she will be grouchy and messy. I am not sure what the right thing to do there is.
I must say "come one Wesley, hurry up" 50 times a day! Does anyone have any tips for how they handle this sort of stuff? Should I just tell her no and deal with the consequences?
