I met Ms. Mom of the Year

Standing in Walmart check-out lane, it's amazing the things you see/hear/question.  I'm checking out, and this woman behind me, Ms. Mom of the Year has a cute kid in the cart.  He looks like he's about one year old, and Ms. Mom of the Year gives her child a Hershey's Cookies and Cream candy bar to hold.  The child being like any other toddler decides to begin to chew on the wrapper.  After five minutes of doing this, Ms. Mom of the Year snatches the candy bar and snarls, "I'm getting tired of you; you really irratate me."  I slowly felt my blood pressure rise correction: my blood pressure rose like the nation's debt- yep that fast!  Instead of acting on my visions of grabbing her from the back of her hair and slamming her Mom of the Year face on my knee repetitively, I was good.  It's moments like this that make me bitter when I see other people not fully appreciating.  In my mind, I see this woman squirting kids out like sharts, and I really struggle to even get one.  Yes, I might be bitter, and my thoughts not always rational, but it's how I feel at the time.  :)


  1. I am so sorry you had to witness something this ugly! This person obviously doesn't know how very blessed she is. I also think your thoughts are perfectly rational and I think a loving parent would probably thought poorly of her as well, but it does affect infertiles the worse because we have to try too hard to get to this place. Thinking of you and hope you don't have to witness something like that again.
