When support becomes insupportable

So recently I reached out to a friend for support. BabyBoy and BabyGirl had been all over the place for days, and I needed some reassurance that this was normal toddler behavior (which I know it is, but it’s nice to hear it from someone else, and I was hoping for some other ideas on how to cope).

When you’ve had to abandon an outing because your kids are having a meltdown, the absolute last thing you need is a message saying, ‘Sorry, my kid is totally amazing and never freaks out ever’. (Ok I’m paraphrasing, but only a bit).

Really? Really?

Is it wrong that the second thought that flashed across my mind (the first being, ‘OMG what am I doing wrong?’) was ‘I kinda hope that kid has a meltdown soon’?
