Dear Old Lady in the Doctors,
There is a reason I am in the doctors surgery with my two children on a Monday morning.
This isn’t the place I choose to spend my Monday morning, it’s not a pleasant place to be.
Keeping two children amused while my appointment over-runs by nearly an hour isn’t exactly fun now is it?
Would this be how you chose to spend your mornings given the choice?
I hope not! although I do wonder
Now my daughter is poorly!
When your poorly what do you do?
Do you want comfort and cuddles?
Do you want looking after and caring for?
I really hope the answer to those questions are Yes
When my kids are poorly I will bend over backwards for them, nothing is too much trouble and if my daughter wants carrying then I will carry her! If she wants her dummy when we are out then she can have it.
I am her MUM – not YOU!!
I tell her what to do – NOT YOU!!
How DARE you tell her she is too big for cuddles and a dummy! and she doesn’t need them.
I decide that – NOT YOU!
She is poorly and I will let her have a dummy if she wants it.
At the end of the day she is 3 years old
Back off and leave her alone – you upset her which in turn has upset me
Next time think about what you saying and think before you speak and upset others again
A concerned and annoyed Mummy
