I was on the monorail and at my stop a woman and a child not much younger than my own two stepchildren got off. He was a tiny little thing, about four years old, and was having trouble getting down the stairs as fast as his mother. She stopped aout three stairs in front of him, turned around and said "If you don't get your a-- down these stairs I'm going to crack your head open with this umbrella." I turned around and looked at her in shock but she ignored me. The little boy hurridly ran down the stairs, stumbling the whole way, and reached the ground floor right behind me, a few steps in front of his mother. I opened the door and smiled down at him, and he grinned the sweetest smile at me as he walked through. I held the door open for his mother, too, and ya know what her response was? "Hey dumba--, why didn't you hold the damn door?"
I wanted to cry for that adorable little boy...either that or scoop him up in my arms and take him home with me. Here I am with two stepkids that I adore but they still ignore me, praying for an adorable little boy just like him, and she treats her kid like crap.
Sorry for the rant. I don't know if it applies to anything, but it just made me so sad.
Body, I've been more than patient. Please make a baby. Please?
