If You Can't Say Anything Nice...
Then mind your own effin' business! I'm peeved, again! Doesn't it seem like I'm always worked up about somethin'? By now, you all know, I live in The Big City. I would assume this presents different challenges in child raising than if I had moved to the country (where I am from) or the suburbs (which I know nothing about). Currently, one of my biggest issues is with the fact that... A) I am with the children all day (husband works long hours). B) Miss Peach is now a toddler, she wants to walk everywhere. This is not easy for me. It is quite a juggling act to push one baby and chase the other. When you add in the rest of the city, it becomes downright dangerous! Here is an example...Yesterday we were crossing at the stop sign, Miss Peach was pushing The Little Man in the stroller and I was guiding them across the street. Miss Peach's shoe came off right in the intersection, I am trying to get the shoe back on and shuffle to the other side. Cars were honking (can you believe that...what a**holes!). Finally (maybe a minute later) I got so flustered that I just picked her up and got us all to the other side. Her other shoe came off when I did this and she screamed "green shoe, green shoe, green shoe". Wouldn't you know it, the jerk ran right over her shoe! Seriously, you couldn't give me one minute...seriously! It is scenes like this that lead me to buying this...Yes, it is a harness. I assumed when I bought this that some folks would accuse me of putting my child on a leash...well maybe it is, but I am just trying to keep her safe. You have to remember that I am navigating two small children through a major metropolitan area by myself every day! Miss Peach screams like crazy when I hold her hand, I don't know why but she just isn't up for that. She does however love her "monkey". She wears it backwards so she can hug the monkey (sweet). I agonized over this purchase, but it really works for me. Well wouldn't you know it, some shriveled old bag walked by us today, looked right at Miss Peach and said "are you a puppy?" She had a real snotty tone, and said it more than once. Who asked you?!? I realize that when you raised your children, the city had horse and buggies, but can I just say things are movin' a bit faster now! There were so many ugly things I wanted to say to her... Why is it that people think they can just say anything to perfect strangers? Yeah lady, my child is a puppy, and she doesn't seem to mind sleeping in a crate either!!! I just don't have the strength to defend myself to strangers. If you don't like the way I gettin' it done, move along. Is this going on everywhere? Am I way out of line for using the monkey harness? That witch put me right back into a tailspin over my decision...Thanks for nothing b*tch!!!
