So I had to do my grocery shopping yesterday. I was exhausted,and had a not so great day at work and all I wanted was to go home, through my feet up and lie on my couch. But, I went, knowing I needed lunch stuff and my father would probably throw me against a wall if I didn’t do it (okay so he would never/could never throw me against a wall – but you get my picture).
So I drag myself to Metro yesterday around 5:00 and everything is going well, I get everything I want and need in the veggies/fruit aisle and it’s all fresh and yummy looking *love my salad for today*! Then I see her. An adorable little girl (probably around 4 yrs old) crying with tears and mucus running down her pretty little face. Her mother, who looks like a cracked out street-walker, is yelling “come on, my god”. First off honey, if you believed in God, any God, you would not have your baby girl walking through a grocery store crying, second, she clearly is upset about something, and even if it’s just because you won’t buy her a candy bar, TAKE CARE OF YOUR CHILD!!!! ‘
I am sorry. Nothing infuriates me more than when I see children crying their eyes out and the mothers or fathers are ignoring them completely. I understand that kids like to cause scenes – I was queen of the scene makers – but seriously, even MY mother would not leave me bawling in a grocery store, walking away from me. I wanted so badly to give the little girl a hug and clean her face, but I had no tissues and the mother was a big woman – not fat – just like a big person, so she probably would have killed me right then and there. That poor little girl, I hope she grows up knowing she is loved by someone and not ignored by everyone like the ignorant mother she has.
Meanwhile, my salad today for lunch is baby romaine, avocado, strawberries, cucumber, goat cheese and prosciutto with a ranch dressing (fat-free). YUMM I cannot wait till 12:00!!!
Have a good day bloggers!
