I had that experience today...

You know the one... where your child is screaming so loud and your ears are ringing so much that you can't hear yourself think.

You know the one... where your child is screaming so loudly that the entire front quarter of Wal-Mart has stopped to watch you and see what is going on that makes him yell like that.

You know the one... where everyone has that look on their face like "why aren't you making him stop?"

You know the one... that there is no logical explanation for this situation, because after all what set him off is that you bought the wrong birthday card...and HE can't even READ!!!

You know the one... that the yelling lasts all the way into the parking lot and people again stop to stare and don't move because they are a. annoyed, b. stunned, or c. like to witness someone else having a bad day!

You know the one... where you have to physically restrain your kid in the car just to buckle him into his car seat. To the innocent bystander, it looks more like abuse but you know that it is love.

You know the one...where you hold your head up high and try to feel like you have control when inside you just want to melt away and it's only 9:30 a.m.!

You know the one... where 5 minutes down the road, he is still screaming and you are dreaming of your "happy place".

You know the ONE!
