Don't you dare...

...look at me like that Ms. "cute little workout outfit" lady with your perfectly put together children and your cart full of organic fruits & vegetables.  Sure my kids are dirty, smelly and look like they just came from the inner depths of the woods but you don't know me.  I know my precious little angel is pitching a fit that everyone from lawn & garden to the deli can hear.  I know that I just opened up a value bag of M&Ms before paying and loaded my kids full of chocolate right before dinner, but you know what...she's a little quieter now so you can get on to shopping with your clean, well-mannered little princesses and your over priced, organic, wholesome foods.  Why don't you just get back to shopping and quit staring at my no makeup self, my filthy kids and my cart full of cereal, pop tarts, frozen chicken formed into dinosaur shapes and not a green leafy vegetable to be found!

*Sorry blog friends....had to get that encounter off my chest.  I do feed my kids fruits & vegetables but melt downs in public call for the big guns!  And if you are reading this, lady that just stared a hole through me, please know I thought you and your girls were adorable and I am only jealous.  I am sure we could really be good friends!

Exactly! I am so sorry that you all have been down and out. I can not think of many worse things that getting projectile vomit all over you.

I absolutely ADORE you for writing this!!! I want to wear a sign that says, " Once upon a time, I was CUTE and PRETTY too! You should have seen me BEFORE this pregnancy." I think it would sometimes make me feel better if I could shout that REALLY loud to people who are looking at my because I am ALL out of sorts in Target!
Thanks for this! Loved it!

Amen Sister! Kudos to you for not saying something to her. Trust me I would have. This GRANDMOTHER gave me that look yesterday. Some nerve!

Oh my, I couldn't have said that better myself ha ha. I've done the m&m's thing on more than one occasion, my kids are quite often a mess and if I manage to put on anything but a workout outfit (not that I workout) then I'm having a good day :)
