I am convinced he is going to be an activist after this one. Today was our first sit in at the store. As in I wanted his little diapered butt to walk to the car and he wanted to, well, lay his little limp diapered butt in the middle of the checkout lane and pretend to be dead.
My only wonder is what was he protesting?
Was he channeling his father and protesting the fact that I didn't bring my 40% off coupon to Michael's and still bought a bunch of crap anyway?
Or maybe it was the fact that I wouldn't let him hold his beloved "Dodo" (Diego) candle for his birthday party that we purchased.
Perhaps it was the fact that I made him look at "girly" things with me and being surrounded by ribbons, and flowers just sent him right over the edge and challenged his manhood.
Whatever it was, the child nearly got stepped on 3 times while I patiently waited for him to drag himself off the floor. My hands were full of the bags and I did not want to set down my "score" of a 70% off ceramic Christmas angel and have it get broken, that would be just awful. But finally, I couldn't stand it and I felt that his protest was done, I scraped him off the nasty tile, poured a bottle of Purell on his head and dashed out with my loot.
I am imagining that it could be worse, I guess he could have been screaming, but I think he saves that up for the grocery store.
