… I thought I’d continue the “cranky” theme & mood I’ve been in …
I keep reading posts from people who get so bent out of shape about others not helping them out when they have their kids with them. My biggest problem with these kinds of complainers? They make the rest of us parents look like incompetent fools who can’t handle our own responsibilities.
I do have some expectations of others when I’m out in public with my kids. For example, please refrain from yelling obscenities or knocking my kids down. Basically the same things I want you to do whether there are kids around or not.
But I don’t expect you to open the door for us, or help carry my bags in the airport, or let us cut in front of you at Costco, or any of the other incidents I’ve read people complain about.
I chose to have 3 kids. If others feel like giving me a hand, I consider that an AMAZING bonus and it makes my freaking day! But if not, I’ll manage just fine. I’m the Mom. That’s my job.
