So clearly I'm not the only one who thinks these ill-timed comments from the peanut gallery are beyond frustrating. It's true. I do have my hands full most of the time. But when I'm literally dancing a jig in the checkout line to entertain a cart full of children who have had it with grocery shopping... that's not the time for a total stranger to point it out. I know they probably don't intend it to be mean or negative, but that's almost always how it comes across to the mother (or father).
What about you? Have you ever had someone say something like this to do while you were wrangling your child(ren)? Did you have a witty response or did you just smile and nod and then gripe about them later on your Facebook?
