Chocolate Tantrum, two days later

Posted By on December 3, 2011

The kids were hungry, and Burian needed the bathroom so we went back to this “friendly” store. I didn’t even think about the scene we made there a couple of days ago until we were approaching the register and the shelf of sweets. I was a little apprehensive remembering his tantrum the last time we were there. I was also curious what would happen.

The two older boys started to ooo and aahh at the bars and snacks, and Burian just kept by my side with his back to the shelf of temptations. He continued with his back to the shelf until we were paid and out of the store. As far as I could tell, that shelf was invisible to him.

What curious little creatures our children are.
