When did it become okay to stand up someone when they are doing you a favor? Or for people to expect you to do something because you are a stay at home mom?
Let me tell you, my life is busy at home. I have a special needs child at home. In one month, Jason has 27 appointments. That means running between 3 therapist (not 1), a psychiatrist, doctors and many other appointments. I have Faith as well to make sure she gets what she needs. I volunteer weekly at the school. I believe that ends up getting my kids better attention..maybe not but I believe so. I believe in paying back what you receive. The teachers are good to my kids so I’m perfectly willing to step up and help when they need me. I maintain a house. I keep the kids in line as well as my husband and pets. I try to make money by writing on the side (not that works well). I cook, clean, wash, etc. The list goes on and on. When I tell someone that I will help out, believe me, that something else is being put off to do so.
Honestly, the rudeness in this gets my butt. If you are going to be inconsiderate, people should go fly their own kite and stay away from mine. I’m perfectly willing to help out when someone needs it. Sometimes even when they have done my family wrong in the past. But have the respect to respect that I am willing to do so.
If you choose not to be my friend because you think I’m parenting wrong when you have no clue about what it takes to raise my child…. Then don’t call us when you need help. I do the very best that I can with my son. Maybe I am strict… maybe I’m not. But I give my kids what they need when they need it. Or I try. Don’t want to help but want to run your mouth…back off me.
Getting off my soap box… had to say it. I’m sure that someone out there won’t and I might have helped them.
