I had to get up at the butt-crack of dawn to take the Mom's Club on a trip to the Pottery Barn outlet in Gaffney, SC (which rocks, by the way!). The day started off great. The kids and I picked up Tracy and Austin so that we could have some breakfast before the 1 hour trip. Things were going good until Hayden pissed off Austin by putting his foot on his carseat. I don't know why, but that is when Hayden's attitude began to take a turn for the worse. I yelled at him because Austin was upset and he thought that I was being funny. Ugh, sometimes I would like to kick him in his little rear! Anyway, he gradually got worse and worse until I just wanted to give him away. I couldn't handle his attitude and my temper was very short. The whole day I had to deal with his whining and crying. Emerson, on the other hand, was perfect as always. The kid rarely complains. He even fell dead asleep while I was carrying him in the Baby Bjorn.

Moral of the story: Next time I decide to go on any kind of a car trip that involves shopping, leave the big kid at home to preserve my sanity.

I hope you don't keep this for posterity! Poor Hayden will grow up thinking Big E is a favorite. Don't forget to mention how damn sweet and funny Mr. H normally is. His favorite Aunt, besides Tracy, Kala
