You would feel "warm and fuzzy" if you knew this woman. She did the wahm chicks auctions because it was FOR CHARITY. She worked hard to get her items done in time. She is the sweetest person I have met in a LONG time. And she doesn't deserve this at all.
I would suggest you consider making a public apology.
Yikes, now I feel really terrible, like I have attacked a sweet woman and everyone needs to defend her. The woman I was talking about is so obviously a sweetie pie (I really liked her from her first email to me), and I didn't say I didn't feel warm and fuzzy about buying from her--I do! I thought I was just saying that since I'm really gung ho on parents staying home with their kids, I love that dollars I spend on stuff I need go towards helping this child or that child not need a daycare. I didn't mean to imply that a diaper maker without children doesn't have the heart of a mother, maybe she does! I just meant that for practical purposes, there simply aren't any children at present benefitting from the success of that CDing business. I have NO problem with buying from her again and again, ---at the end of the day the way I make my purchase decisions is based on quality (what works best for my son), and the mommies who get to stay home with their children from successful CD businesses that I contribute to is just icing on the cake. There's some icing with helping a sweetie pie lady with her CD business too, but I said I felt even 'more warm and fuzzy' about, well.... keeping kids out of daycare. I really didn't mean to offend anyone or imply anything bad about the woman I'm referring to!!! I wish her all the best! I also had no problem with her participating in the auction--it's for charity, after all, I was just being totally honest that my first reaction was that it was a bit odd--but that passed through my head for like a half a second and then I really didn't care and felt great about the entire charity auction, and hoped her products got some great bids to help the charity cause.
Sorry this got so long I just got a little hurt that my well-intended words got misconstrued and I hope I somewhat cleared it up.
