Hope y’all had a great weekend. I wanted to share what happened to me the other night. So I was at dinner with my 2 sisters, brother in law, Trey, my 2 nephews and niece. My other brother in law was in Vegas for work, so my sister had her two kids to herself. It’s always nice to have family time- we usually do lunch or dinner every Sunday, even when my parents are out of town like now.
So let me start off by saying, my niece is 1. Literally just turned 1 last week. I think we all know what 1 year olds do. They are babies, they yell, they cry, they laugh, they’re curious, again THEY’RE BABIES. I had never actually witnessed this in my life, but have heard about people experiencing this, and I’m in awe at today’s society and their lack of compassion for mothers. So my niece was in a great mood, laughing, yelling, making cute faces. We are at a family restaurant y’all, at about noon. Like this isn’t a fancy, quiet place. Very loud, TV’s everywhere, Football games, cheering fans, a lot of people. So this man sitting next to us has the audacity to literally looked at my niece and roll his eyes at my sister because she yelled. ONCE. The very first time she yelled he turned around and rolled his eyes at my sister. Like I can’t even imagine what was going through this man’s head. My sister felt so bad- she told us she was going to leave because she couldn’t help my niece Bella yelling. She was in a good mood and that’s what she does when she’s hyper. Again, she’s ONE. So this got me so angry, because I don’t understand who people can be so inconsiderate. Not only was my sister trying to tend to two kids- but she literally can’t tell a one year old to not yell at a restaurant when they don’t even understand what their name is. So anyway, this man did it several times, & finally made eye contact with me for about 20 seconds, and I said “What?” ( I was mad because of the way he was making my sister feel, and because of how inconsiderate and rude he was being). He turned around soon after and left us alone.
I share this incident because I want y’all to really think about it. We can’t just think about ourselves and our wants and needs. You have no idea what a stranger is going through, so why not be KIND? My sister didn’t deserve to feel the way she did. Little did he know that she was exhausted after a long weekend taking care of her 2 kids ages 3 and 1- without her husband’s help since he was out of town. If you don’t want to be disturbed by babies (which BTW you were one at some point too), then stay home. So please, please, please, I really hope none of y’all ever leave a public establishment because of an inconsiderate idiot who doesn’t understand the concept of age groups.
So with that being said, how cute is my “Kindness is always stylish” tee?
