are you writing something?

It's been a long time since I had a toddler, although I now have a small nephew. I think the hardest things were probably temper tantrums in public, running out of control, accomplishing specific goals if my son wasn't interested and potty training/using public washrooms (me and him). How did I manage? Mostly by avoiding malls, and specifically things likely to cause tantrums like the ride on amusements if I wasn't in the mood to pay for them. I would always have snacks, sometimes spare clothes, and would always try to include one or more kid centric activity to keep things happier. I guess limiting expectations might help at that age too. Basically I avoided doing unnecessary mall shopping, not even for kids shoes or clothes, so choosing stores with good return policies.
