My worst nightmare just came into reality. I thought I am one lucky mama to have Baby K behave as she does. I always get praises because she's one quiet baby. She rarely cries when we go to gatherings or meet up with other people. Even though she prefers to be in my arms these days, she still braves in a fairly good way. I am wrong and I did not expect it to happen, especially yesterday when everything seemed to be so good.

After the story time, we went to the mall (again) to do more gift shopping. I can proudly say that I only need to buy two more gifts. That rarely happens because I always do last minute shopping on Christmas time. Kaelyn started getting annoyed and so I picked her up so she could fall asleep. She did and when I laid her down on her stroller, she cried and cried and cried hysterically. I let her cry, hoping that she will fall asleep but she didn't. I didn't want to pick her up because we need to get to the bus soon. She kept on crying, loudly, trying to remove herself from the stroller. Her face was turning red and her cry, oh my gosh, I can't even describe it. Everyone who walked passed us gave me a dirty look. They were probably thinking how terrible of a mom I am. I was so frustrated because I don't get why she won't just go to sleep in her stroller like she always used to? After 20 minutes or so, I gave in and picked her up. She stopped crying but showed me that she wasn't happy about it by pinching me over and over again. I was so annoyed and didn't know what to do. When we go to Patrick's work, I gave Baby K to him and told him what happened. He laughed at me, thinking I was probably joking. He didn't thought how bad it was until his sister told him and how annoyed I looked.
It was probably my fault too because I always gave in on everything that she wanted. Also, everyone at home always carried her even when she doesn't need anything. She isn't used to being ignored. Now, I don't know what to do because she has started having fits and keeps on pinching me when she doesn't get what she wants. Talk about being a spoiled brat and she's only 9 months old. I am so frustrated and tired. I'm not even sure why this is happening this early. She seemed fine and next thing you know, she's screaming and crying her heart out. I am now under pressure of disciplining her properly. I have been told by a few other moms how their babies follow and understand them when they're a year old. I'm kind of scared on how other moms react when they see my daughter. They seem to judge me based on how she acts which is a little unfair.
