Holla

For all you young mothers our there, I took one for the team today:

I was out getting lunch with my 2-year-old and the little boy I babysit after my son's Dr. appointment. I was ordering the food and the boys were behind me. M was tapping on the glass at the people outside and I hear a lady behind me say "He's banging on the glass!" So I turn around to see what is going on and this lady who is obviously past her child-baring years is giving me the dirtiest look I've seen in a long time.
My heart started pounding and the blood rushed to my face. I picked M up and looked at her and said, "If you've ever had kids of your own, please do not give me a dirty look," I turned around and walked away.
Whether you agree with my actions or not: It was hugely satisfying, and hopefully this bitter woman will think twice about giving one of you the evil eye when your children are behaving less than stellar.

Ahhhh.... yes. I can imagine the satisfaction. I wonder what she would have said if they were banging on each other. Or spitting on the glass. Or climbing on the back of the bench... etc...

Some people have no patience for children. I feel sorry for her. Others are so sweet and understanding of the little things kids do.

YOU ARE AWESOME!!! I probably would have chosen less appropriate words but still you rock.

Yes, I want my kids to wear the t-shirt that says My Mom doesn't care what you think, or something like that! I get lots of comments and looks because Jack is such a climber and pretty much fearless. Good for you!!
