Another day, another shit fight in public.
This morning we got No.1’s Prep uniform, she was super excited and fortunately we are friends and neighbours with the P&C President (some of you will know the benefits of this) so could hang out back.
To amuse No.2 I gave him my phone and he played some dinosaur game but then got the shits with it and threw on the ground and gave it a little kick for good measure.
Of course I took it off him, despite his protests, which lasted for 15 minutes!
“I want my dinosaurrrrr gggaaammme” – he said this over and over and over, tearing streaming down his face.
We then had to visit the reception to book an appointment and he was still howling, much to the disgust of the other mother waiting.
The bitch must have perfect kids the way she was looking at me in disgust at the show my kids were putting on.
I explained very loudly why he couldn’t have the dinosaur game so everyone knew there was a good reason I was torturing my child.
We left the office and out into the school grounds, past dozens more disapproving eyes and made it to the car!
It got me thinking about why other mothers can’t just ignore other mums and kids when they’re having a meltdown?
I don’t even bat an eyelid when I hear a child, shout or throw themselves on the floor behind me at the supermarket – out of respect for the poor mother who has to deal with said child.
You can understand why old people give you the evil shit eye, because they’re old, cantankerious and probably haven’t had sex in years so are very uptight.
Also probably because back in their day if a child had acted that way they wouldn’t be able to sit down for a week after arse smacking they got for such rude behaviour.
But surely mums can band together and pretend to ignore other mum’s kids when they’re being little turds.
I make a point of it, if I catch their eye, or they mumble embarassingly, I tell them that their kids are practically angels compared to my horrors, just to make the poor bugger feel slightly better.
So come on mums, don’t stick the knife in, stick together!!
