....was that necessary, sweet older woman? To come running up to my side (as I'm walking into Walmart) and grab my 5 year old's hand (who is walking a mere 12" from my hip)!?! To "help her across the road"!?! And say, "I don't think they'll hit me!" AND, then tell announce that my son's red boots are too hot for summer? All without even looking my direction!?!
I only have 2 hands...and 3 children...BUT, I promise...I got it covered.
WOW!!! That's CRAZY, Lindsay! I don't know what I would have done. What did you do/say???ReplyDelete
and glenda strikes again!!ReplyDelete
That's funny! Gotta love those "helpers". ;) How in the world did your kiddos make it through their lives thus far without her?ReplyDelete
I have a friend who is living in Amman, Jordan doing missionary work, and she just had her first baby. She said around there, it is custom to bluntly tell people what they're doing wrong. Needless to say, she has been given TONS of blunt advice. Sometimes it gets to her, but she said she's trying to get past it. I know it's gotta be tough, though!
Note to self...when my kids are grown and gone, don't try to correct another mother! ;)
