I just about fell over laughing while reading today's post on Dooce. I realized that I am that person now. I remember before I had Brianna I thought they should make children/ non children sections in restaurants like they do for smoking and non smoking. I also thought they should have special screenings of movies for people with children so as not to bother the rest of us. I was horrible, I know. I've already paid for it, though. I am now the evil mother who wouldn't buy that toy for her poor, poor daughter (who already had something exactly like it, by the way). Yes, I'm the mother who made her child beg, cry and promise that she would be good girl for the rest of her life if I just got her that _____ (fill in the toy,candy, or treat) that she really needed. The childless people would pass by giving me dirty looks and thinking about how evil I am and how unfortunate that adorable little girl must be for having a mother like me. No one (except for the other parents) knew that just a half hour ago she got another thing she really "needed" at a previous store. Parents would give me a sympathetic smile which made me understand that they've been through it and are just glad that it's me and not them at the moment. The same smile that I give parents of toddlers now knowing that before long I'll be going through the same thing all over again with Alec. Yay, I can't wait. Heh, heh.

listening to: nothing (working)
what I should be doing instead of blogging: paying closer attention to work
