I'm in a crabby mood today - which bothers me because it's my 15th wedding anniversary - and I should be happy...deliriously happy, right? Yep - 15 years ago today I married My Marine for better or worse. But, for the rest of that story, you'll have to come back tomorrow when I actually will post some wedding photos!
Anyway, my crabbiness is partly of my own making and partly thanks to some idiots who are gracing this planet with their annoying presence. Today I saw:
- At the library, a mother who was talking on the phone oblivious to her child running through the very busy parking lot. When horns were beeped, warning her that her child was in extreme danger, she looked up, flipped off the concerned driver, and kept talking on the phone....not grabbing her child.
- At the park, while patiently waiting for a swing for Nudgie, I politely asked if they were going to be much longer so I could either wait or find something else for Nudgie to play on and was told...."We're having a private conversation here and you'll just have to wait." It took a lot of restraint NOT to strangle her with her little designer scarf right then and there.
- In Target, I witnessed the tantrum of all tantrums -- thankfully it wasn't my girls for once. My heart went out to the mom until I heard for the 15th time -- Mommy said stop that or we're going to leave. Mommy said no or we're going to leave. Mommy said no screaming or we're going to leave. After 15 minutes of "Mommy said", I was ready to take both Mommy & child and escort them to the door. Please mommy - if you're going to try to scare your child with idle threats, guess what -- they'll keep going. They know you're not going to follow through.
I could go on and on, but in the true spirit of Wordless Wednesday, I'm going to shut up now and show you some priceless pictures of my girls.......
