Rude

I'm in the grocery store with Paisley riding in the seat of the cart and Luke hanging on the side of the cart doing some acrobatic moves every now and then. Paisley's eye is starting to get better now, but kinda looks even more gross because it is all yellowed and still black and blue. I just ran in to get a few items for dinner. (No, I am not together to have my menu planned out for the week or month and I make several trips to the grocery store because of the need of 1 or 2 items) A cute mom walks in the door with her cute husband holding their well dressed approx. 3 year old. At first she starts to smile at Paisley and then obviously notices her eye and gasps loudly, looks at me sideways and hurries off. While I'm still in earshot she says to her husband, "did you see that? that poor baby." I'm sad to say it actually made me giggle. I mean what did she think? Either I beat my child and then had the gall to take her in public or I am a horrible mother to let such a thing happen to my baby. Either way in her mind I was obviously an unfit mother. At least I didn't go there today and see her because now Paisley has a bruise(not very bad one) on her forhead where she wacked herself with a toy, to go along with the black eye ;)

That is hilarious because of course she only has one child and thinks that she is the perfect parent! So you have fun crazy kids, who like to hurt themselves- at least you can laugh about it!

Sometimes I wonder if parents like this borrow "perfect prop children" to make the rest of us look bad. I'm sure if I would have seen her, my kids would have bruises, boogers hanging out of their noses, and bad words to say while I read a smut magazine in the check out isle.
