Dear Kate,

It's Zombie Apocalypse with a Toddler Tip Tuesday!!

Tip #3
If, while pretending to be zombies amidst the shambler zombie hoard, you are discovered to be alive, pick up your toddler immediately and without warning.  This is not to protect him directly but rather to ensure that a wild tantrum ensues.  If a tantrum is not immediate, adding the shout "No, you can't have ice cream for breakfast!" is sure to get one going.  (Note: If you normally prefer to discuss feelings with your toddler in order to teach emotional intelligence, you may have to set aside your routine practices to avoid being devoured by zombies).

Now, this may seem counter-intuitive to purposefully start a tantrum, as we all know that leaving anywhere with a tantrumming toddler is virtually impossible.  Yes, your movement will be severely hindered, however, a flailing, shrieking child is beyond unapproachable and will be invulnerable to a zombie attack. In fact, by instigating a tantrum, you have essentially turned your toddler into a zombie shield as long as you are able to hold him or her and as long as the tantrum lasts.  Move slowly away from the zombie hoard to safety.  Should the tantrum begin to wane, do anything and it will likely continue.

We're gonna survive,
