Inspired by this photo of my friend’s son at the grocery store
Grocery Store Misery
I asked for courageous people to share photos of their kids having meltdowns for a short-winded collection. I am hoping that you will see beyond the fact that I am kind of laughing at childish rage, and feel comfort in the shared experience.

And I have to say, I think this is the best photo ever. Hint: It’s not just of cars.
