Flip Off Friday 9/30 edition
It's been a while since I've done these, so I'm craving my week ending de-stressor. And thanks to Kludgy Mom, this is always one of my favorite posts. Who me? Angry? Pent up aggression? No. So here it goes.
1. To the heckler on the side lines of my son's soccer game: FLIP OFF! My son, who has since quit soccer, but when he first took the field, he played soccer like it was tackle football. He didn't mean any harm. He's five. He thought it was funny. He has to learn. But the big mouth parent on the sidelines, couldn't keep their mouth shut and started yelling things at him like, "Kid, this isn't football, it's soccer." To this said parent, who mad my blood boil, keep your mouth shut or I'll run you down like my kid did to yours on the soccer field.
2. To my son's elementary school: FLIP OFF! Closing the library wasn't cool. I know it is still open as a public library after school hours, and that you are "working on" opening it sometime soon. But, literacy is a big problem in this country and you go and close the library, "temporarily" and end library visits "temporarily" for the kids during school hours, kids still learning to read. And you don't even tell the parents about it, letting us know why you did it, what is being done to bring it back and how long it will take, you just do it and we have to hear about it second hand. You need to keep us informed, this is our children's school, the place 50% of our high property taxes go. As far as I'm concerned, in regards to my kids' school, there is no such thing as giving us "too much" information.
3. To Teething: FLIP OFF! I know I have flipped off this one before, and it can't be done enough, but my 10 month old just cut the top two teeth and the weeks leading up to it were filled with no sleeping, crying, not wanting to eat, just wanting to be held.... and that was just me, you should have seen the baby. *smile* You know what I mean, they need to write a parents hand book, just about teething.
4. To my kids' recent hearing loss: FLIP OFF! All I have to say about this one to get you to understand is, I might as well be talking to a wall.
