Critical Moms. I was almost one last Saturday. I witnessed this mom at the library who was yelling across the room to her son. I was like ‘what the heck’. Stop reading ‘People’ and go see what he wants. I’m all for yelling in the comfort of home, but not really in the library.
I had it all planned in my head how I was going to write up what went on in the library that day – because believe me, it was waaay more than the paragraph above….
Then I went to check out my books – The librarian and I started chatting about life in general. I told her about my boy who escaped the library the other day and how bad spirited he is. She told me about her equally spirited son, once upon a time, 30+ years ago. Then she said it – “But you have it much worse than I did…..Mom’s your age can be so critical”. Yep, she’s right, and I suppose I’m guilty.
