Looking in the Google search for “how caffeine affects your health,” I happened to find Caffeine Convoy. Although I was looking for something completely different, the title post, “Will Somebody Please Leave Me a Smart Comment?” caught my eye. I laughed out loud at the thought of people being that stupid! Needless to say, that first post pulled me in, and next thing you know, I’m learning about history, current events and how much stuff I really didn’t know and am I that stupid too? I mean, who the hell is Rupert Murdock anyway? Yeah, I found out later, after I read ExpressoSelf’s post on this jackass! Now I know, and now I’m hooked on this adventure of being a part of the Convoy.
Caffeine Convoy is about “Chit Chat that Matters,” so being the newest member here, I’d better make what I write about count. There’s lots of political views already, so I’ll try something different. Something that is rarely said and I know I’ll be offending many.
“I can’t stand those Moms who don’t pay attention to what their kids are doing.” There, I said it!
You know those Moms, and you know if you’re guilty of being one of them. And I know who you are, I’ve seen you several times at the park. You sit at the park bench with your back to your kids chatting with the other Moms while at the same time you have no clue that your toddler has just eaten a handful of sand and has made his way to the top of the slide and is about to fall off and I’m right there to catch him as you keep on chatting away... WHY? Why did you become a Mom if you don’t plan on watching your own kid? Are you that oblivious to what’s going on around you and your most important job? Yes, job! It’s your job to take care of the child(ren) that calls you, “Mom.” It’s your job to make sure that they are safe and obviously if your back is to them, you are not doing your job.
While I’m at it, let’s talk about the behavior of Moms not paying attention to their kids in a public restaurant where alcohol is being served. Mommy sits at the table and drinks her 2nd glass of wine looking at her smart phone while baby is in the high chair chewing the plastic off the lid of the soda cup and 2 year old Timmy is jumping up and down on the seat that is adjacent to mine while I’m trying to have my meal with my family. Are you f*#%ing kidding me?! WHY? Why did this person become a Mom and why did she have another?
If YOU are one of these Moms, please help me to understand why you are a Mom by leaving me a comment, if you have the balls. I’m off to the coffee shop with my new friends here from Caffeine Convoy...
