For today’s throat punch I need a second to ask the recipient to go and get a babysitter.
I can’t chop her gullet in front of her child.
OH wait, I AM the babysitter…. Right. That’s why she’s getting the slap to the larynx.
Because she’s a complete stranger, a woman I have never met in my entire life, and she left her baby with me. With us.
No I’m not kidding.
I don’t kid on Throat Punch Thursdays.
Her daughter was adorable and my child loves babies, so we went over to say hi, to make baby friends, and then to leave.
But we couldn’t leave.
Her mother was no where to be found.
I looked around, searching high a low for her boney little body, which could be hiding anywhere; in the garbage can, the fake ferns, I even checked in my purse.
Brian spotted her.
At the cell phone kiosk.
If I wanted a second baby badly enough right now your precious, chubby faced, beautiful little girl would have been mine!
She would have been safe with me and I would NEVER have left her with a stranger while I looked at cases for my iphone.
You are lucky that it was us who you left her with while your brain leapt from your head and you put shopping in front of your child’s safety.
Because I would never steal your baby.
This Throat Punch comes with a lesson in parenting you sad woman.
There are many people who would steal your baby, they are waiting for an opportunity just like this one and would have disappeared in an instant with your tiny girl.
Your child should be the most important person in your life, you never leave her with a stranger. If you need a break then call a friend, her grandparent, or a real babysitter you trust!
Your throat punch comes in the form of disappointment. From one mother to another.
That should sting more.
I am very disappointed.
