I have two pieces of very important advice for you. Listen close, I'm only going to say this once. (Because then Dora will be over and my break, as well.)
1) If you're going to play that whole "fine, if you won't leave the park, I'm going to leave you here and bears are going to eat you, BYE BYE" game, and actually take it as far as getting into your car, starting it up, and putting it in reverse while your four year old stands stunned in the middle of the playground, then runs screaming at your vehicle .... make sure there's not a cop standing ten feet from your car. Paused mid-ticket writing, staring at you. If that maybe ever happens to you (HYPOTHETICALLY) get your kid in the car real fast and flee the scene.
2) If you're going to take your coffee home to savor (as opposed to slamming it in the car, as previously discussed), don't get home and try to balance a grocery bag, a diaper bag, and your coffee in the driveway. Because you'll drop your *&^%$#@ coffee, it will explode down the inside of the car door and all over the driveway, and your screams will be heard in four states. Going back was not an option, my allotted car time was up (said MG) so here I am, drinking a Diet Coke that's burning my irritated throat with every swallow. BUT CAFFEINE! I was thisclose to grabbing a straw and drinking it off the pavement, yall. Desperate times.
