Ok, so I've gotten over the fact that I have a coworker who constantly complains about not getting enough sleep because of her 16 month old son. I just ignore it now. But today she said something that nearly set me off. I had to literally bite my tongue not to say anything. Basically she said she wanted to ditch her son and go take a tour of some buildings in DC. Why would you want to ditch your son? Even that young, he may enjoy going and being with his parents. He's only a handful because you have made him that way. There is something called discipline. I just looked at her and said "You want to ditch your son? Why would you do that?" She then gave me some lame excuse, "Well, I don't think he would do well on the tour." So what?! You never know until you try. Being a parent includes learning how to handle your child in different situations. If you didn't want to be tied down with a kid then use birth control. Or give him up for adoption to a family who really deserves a child because its obvious she doesn't deserve him. WTF! I really need something right now. I am so mad I'm shaking. I can't believe someone would even say that. OMFG, can I smack her yet?
