Personally, I don't see how it could still be enjoyable. We won't say anything to "you", but we sure will talk about "you".
I know, we take notice of that behavior at a restaurant too as it can be a teaching moment for our girls to witness that kind of thing. But boy, people get riled up over there. Kind of funny actually.

No kiddin', that's a rough playground today. Wacky!! You'd think with all that's going on in the world maybe folks would be a teensy bit nicer.
I am so glad we have our thread of kind, friendly folks!!

I just read the thread Jen posted....WOW!!!! I want to smack some people!!! You honestly never know if the child is "capable" of behaving. I have gotten more dirty looks in my life because of Steven or Sarah misbehaving. I'm sorry, step into my shoes and tell me I am not effectively parenting. I do my best, but live with special needs before you even try to pass judgement!!!!! Sorry I Get touchy with this stuff

It is pretty sickening how some people can be. Just like Ginny said, with everything that is going on in our world, you would think there would be a little more kindness. Sad. I think people just like to sit behind their screens and be powerful. I admire you for what you do and continue to do for your kids Melissa.

Thanks for writing this. I'm sure it will make people think before they judge .... just too bad that the people that REALLY need to read this aren't on this thread.

Linda, lol!! I was afraid to post it over in the actual thread for all the backlash it would cause. But I knew I could safely vent it here but maybe I can tone it down and post it????

My first reaction was to tell you to go post it over there but I really don't want one of "my" ladies beat up and hurt. Besides do you think it would really make anyone stop and think??? But on the other hand if it made just ONE person stop and think before they judge it might be worth it. Just be ready to be burned and know we are all here for you ....

I said something....this is what I posted.

I have to step in here and say something.....

Everyone has a right to their opinion, however to judge someone as a ineffective parent is wrong. As a mother with special needs children I try my damn hardest to make sure they are behaving or entertained. I have left restaurants and stores, but to think that someone is looking at me and judging me is disgusting. You honestly never know what disabilities a child may have and maybe compassion instead of judgement would be more humane.

Happy Thursday All!

Finally got around to calling and applying my GC's to our ressie so we are officially PIF!

Tomorrow I get to chaperone DS8's field trip to the History Museum and I am sooooo excited! I haven't gone on a field trip since DD was born so I am due!

pas - Love the new split!

wookie - OMG! You so deserve something for the snake thing! I had to just skim the rest of your post because I got all

dani - Yay for PIF! One step closer to Hawaii!

Melissa - Enjoy your snuggles! What a nice idea to get Steven after testing. I'm feeling like a turd today because DS7 was feeling icky and I all but forced him onto the bus. It is only allergy related so nothing major, but still... I regret not just keeping him home now.

magic - Sorry about your mom and canceling your trip. I hope that you guys can get something planned for the fall

koh - I'm confused about your split idea. Wouldn't it work better to do the DDP and buy tickets for the whole trip for first WDW part and then just go CL and OOP for the rest so you don't have to buy extra tickets you don't need? Maybe I'm just confused.

janet - I'm now hungry for some southern bbq! Yum!

jenny - Happy Birthday to your DD! What a scary birth story. Glad everything was ok! Regarding the dining thread, I can't believe some people are so judgmental. My kids are usually well behaved, even moreso if another table is acting up and they are all . But still, I don't believe for a second that everybody hasn't had their fair share of "those" moments. A little empathy goes a looooong way.

Grumpy Grandma - Yay for almost ADR Day!

piglet's mommy - Another snake story! Moving right along....

Miss - I literally laughed out loud about the Hamm/Stitch underwear wrestling. Your DD is so awesome! Sorry about the flooding, but at least it scored you some good mommy/DD bonding time

Well, better get going. Between the field trip tomorrow and soccer Saturday it's my last good packing day, and I still need to finish laundry in order to do so!

Iheart: I will do the PIF dance for you! Hooray! Hope you enjoy the field trip! And you too have started soccer already? We don't start here until May 22! It must be a tad warmer where you are!

I_Heart: When do you leave?!

~~------------------------------~~

We're at home today. Schools were closed due to flooding. I just finished watching Hamm (Toy Story) and Stitch -- who were dressed up in Miss M's underwear -- have 10 or so sumo wrestling matches inside a hula hoop on our living room floor.

Our street is flooded and closed off starting a block from our house... and the flash flood warning is in effect until 8pm this evening. Only damage so far is a wet floor in the dining room where the water has blown in through the storm windows. Stupid gutters right above these windows got clogged yesterday afternoon from our silly tree pods. (Reminds me I need to get that useless sucker chopped down this fall. )

Days like these, I wish I owned a kayak. We've got our very own Lake Michigan down the road.
Ugh, sorry about the water in the house. Hopefully it doesn't get worse. Miss M cracks me up with her creativity! I hope you took pictures!!!! LOL!!! Try to stay dry and safe!
