PLEASE Don't Be A Clueless Mommy!


Hello my FABulous Friend... I’m SOOoo glad that you’re here with moi!  Make yourself comfy, and let me fill your cup with a fresh brew of, ‘Stupid Mommy, Pay Attention to Your Kid!’...
Yesterday I went to my favorite spot to purchase more peanut butter... little did I know that I would be needing to replenish my boxes of hair color too... standing in the aisle I got scared out of my wits and jumped right out of my Jimmy Choo shoes!  What scared the living daylights out of me was not another butt crack incident, but the unexpected sheer volume of a thunderous voice behind me... 
EMILY ROSE!!!!!  GET YOUR FANNY BACK OVER HERE THIS VERY SECOND... WAIT ‘TIL I GET MY HANDS ON YOU!!!!
Oh. My. Gawd!  Run child, RUN!!  No, I didn’t say this out loud for fear that this so called Mommy would put her hands on meeee and my precious contents in my shopping cart... it was less than a dozen lipsticks Darling, I promise!  
The child was... mmm... about 3ish...  3ish???  What the heck?  Really?  If this woman could scare the buhJesus out of me, a grown MILF, how must this child feel every time her Mommy calls for her?  And the worst part?  It’s the Mommy’s fault for not paying attention to her own child!!  
Clue #1 that this was the Mommy’s fault...
If a Mommy has a child that they know is a little escape artist, then STRAP THEM IN!!    Obviously, this particular child was not.  Nothing muddles my lipstick more than a Mommy screaming top lung at her little firecracker when all the Mommy had to do was put the child in the shopping cart.
Clue #2 that this was the Mommy’s fault...
The Mommy WAS NOT paying attention to where her child was.  Can we say, “Half the length of a football field not paying attention!”???  Ridiculous and absolutely uncalled for, no matter how quick those little legs could run.
Clue #3 that this was the Mommy’s fault...
When Mommys shop with their friends, sometimes top priorities get lost in the giggles of being with another Mommy.  Of course it’s FABulous being with another Mommy, but we still must remember our responsibilities... I know this was one of the many reasons for this Mommy’s lack of awareness when it came to her child, as I saw the friend come around the corner.
Well Darling, my lipstick is smudged and I don’t think I can stomach another cup!  Mommys who are unaware are setting a bad example for their own kids.  These Mommys are teaching their children that it’s okay to ignore responsibilities, take chances with another’s vulnerability and if all else fails, use forceful threats to make it right.  I don’t think so... 
Mommy Lesson moral for the day?  The same as always... Pay attention and be aware of your child’s environment.  We Mommys need to keep them safe until they can fend for themselves... not fend from their Mommy.
Until next time my Darling, stay FABulous... Ta Ta!  xoxo

  1. I soooo agree with you! My kids were either strapped in the cart or, if we were somewhere without carts, still attached to me (yes, I am one of THOSE mommies that put a leash on her kid).

  2. oh nothing makes me madder than seeing toddlers not in a cart or stroller because YES the obvious happens then the mom gets upset. I mean heck if I was the size of a leprechaun and had a HUGE store in front of me full of hiding spots I'd want to run for it as well! Psst my internet is working the right way now!I can comment again!

  3. Perfect advise my dear. Having 6 little monsters of my own, I certainly have learned to use the extra pair of eyes in the back of my head.

    Truthfully though, when you yelled out EMILY ROSE...I spit my coffee out at the computer.

    "Whatever would you do that for Sharon?" You may be asking...

    "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" scared the caffeine right outta me

    Much love
    Sharon

  4. I couldn't agree more! I use bribery, er INCENTIVES, to keep my 3-year-old near me, if necessary. Something along the lines of, "If you'd like to keep that lollipop, do NOT leave my side." Works every time.

  5. OMG mrsmomx6 thought the same thing I did....The Excoriation of Emily Rose. When my little one is out of her cart she is in front of me between the cart and my body because people sometimes the toddler gets tired of sitting in the cart and I need to get grocery shopping done. I have also used the leash. I am too paranoid to let my little one wander three aisles away from me sorry their are way to many weirdos in the land of crazies.

  7. Hahaha! Great post! Very true! The world is full of these mums! Every shopping trip I see one! How can you not know where your child is? Wrong, so wrong! Mummybootcamp for that one! :) p.s. please be careful with those Jimmy Choo's!

  8. AMEN!!!!! i see this a lot too and I CANNOT be one of those moms where they just let their children run wild like its a zoo especially when we go out to eat too and their are kids jumping in the booths looking over throwing their spaghetti at an old man without no hair. Its insane. these moms need to go back to school!

  9. I always enjoy that *raised eyebrow* especially when they begin screaming at the child who is playing in the middle of the isle while they were on your cell phone chatting to Marie about her deadbeat boyfriend.
    I thought of The Exorcism of Emily Rose as well hahaha!

  10. Darling, I wanted to share this but alas, I nearly broke a fingernail looking for the share buttons! Please put down the lipstick for a moment and get the buttons added posthaste!

  11. I wonder if it would be wrong to strap my 22 year old in the cart to keep her from running away......

  12. I dunno dear...I always have to shop with all three of my little ones, and since two of them are toddlers, it's hard to keep both of them in the cart (as I need the space) and you KNOW what kind of children I have!!! However, I am NOT into letting my child run rampant through the supermarket...THAT is unacceptable. SOOO, I guess I can sympathize somewhat.

  13. I've seen kids roaming around malls and wonder why their moms do not strap them in. It's just crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I try to strap mine in, but I've had incidents where my oldest will undo their straps and let them lose.

    I have four kids, ages four and under...this sort of thing occasionally happens to even the best of us.

    I hate to play devil's advocate here, but I could cut the offending mommy in this scenario a break. I think I've walked a few aisles in her spit-up-on shoes. :)

    BTW, totally have missed my daily dose of caffeine with you OC! I can't ever make it to my laptop anymore!
