So, what part of your being a cashier at a grocery gives you the right to tell me how to raise my children? Or how to raise my friends children? I don't particularly care about how you raised your children. Here's a few things you should know...

My daughter is not overtired. She had only been awake for 1 1/2 hours after 13 hours of sleep. She looked darling, by the way, and yes, babies wear boots!

I am perfectly aware that sometimes you need to let your child scream. I do it all the time. Long live the iPod!

I don't care if your children were off the bottle at age 1. My daughter loves her bottle and I will not throw them all away because you tell me to. Oy!

I don't think parents that allow their children pacifiers until the age of 3 or 4 are lazy. I don't know why they do it. Maybe you should ask them. Better yet, maybe you should keep your opinions to yourself.

That is all.

What happened to you today? Was it some crabby old lady that tried to impart wisdom to you? No lie, I have a friend who's son is the same age as Erik. He had a Knight's play sword at Fry's one time. Some woman came up and yelled at her for letting him carry a weapon! She looked at her and said, "Right, because so many people are out cutting off heads with Excalibur that we should worry about it." I just pictured the kid out pulling a Highlander on the neighbors. People need to shut their mouths.

Oh man, I definitely think I need the back story on this one. I remember one time someone trying to give Matt and I advice on Tryston's fit in a grocery store. Matt had 3 words... MIND YOUR BIZNESS! hahaha That crazy nut job shut her mouth after that.
