wow....how crushing for your daughter. Her outfit sounds precious...that loony bat.
The single worst thing anyone ever said to me, as a mama, also happened in the grocery store.
My son was one year old, still crawling. We had been at this market for over an hour ordering his special one year birthday cake.
The floor in this market was shiny and spotless so I finally put him down to crawl beneath my feet since he was squirmy.
This old witch walks up to me and says "Is that your child?"
I glowed, and said "yes."
She said "You don't deserve a baby" and huffed off.
Jojo, I have never been so humiliated, hurt and pissed off in my life.
I huffed around the store trying to decide what to do to her, like ram her cart, or instead maybe sweetly defend what I had done.
Finally, I decided that walking by her again and smiling was my only response, otherwise I would have looked crazy!
So sorry for your judgemental encounter.
maybe she never had the joy of having a child...or being a child.
