Matthew + Long Line = Meltdown

I took Matthew to the bank today because I had to cash two checks. The last time we went to NFCU he kept running away from me, so this time I put him in the stroller. Of course, it was crowded - it always is! We were only there about 5 minutes when he had his meltdown. There were at least 20 people in line ahead of us and I could see the line was not moving so we left. (I just couldn't take another public screaming session.) Going in, I had thought he would be ok because he had a paci, a cup of juice, and a small toy. I don't know what else I could have done to make him comfortable...at this point he just cannot tolerate waiting in line.

It has taken my son years to tolerate waiting in lines. So hang in there!

I hear you. Austin is the exact same way - even waiting at the doctor's office and other places. Sometimes snacks and toys work for us, sometimes not. I guess it all just depends on the day. Hopefully you can go next time without Matthew or maybe they will not be as busy! :)
