The Stare

So it happened
It took 2 1/2 years to happen but it did
we got the stare
you know, the one where someone is judging you and your parenting
and it bothered me
I wanted to go over to the judgemental lady and tell her...
we are good parents
we are on our holidays
he is a good boy 99% of the time
now is the 1 %
now is the time we parent via YouTube so that you get to eat your fish and chips in peace and not be terrorised by an over tired and vocal toddler
now is the time that I feel like I have to justify my parenting to you and i have never set eyes on you before
now is the time when I want to go and say stop staring, didn't anyone tell you it's rude
stop whispering to your friends/ husband/ sister
we are not bothering you
you are however bothering me and my enjoyment with my family who I only get to see a couple of times a year
I know I should ignore
but it's really hard
as we all know, this parenting business is blooming hard
we are doing ok
we have a happy MiniMonkey
that's all that matters
so to all the starers/ mutterers/ judgers
Leave us Be
