Dear mom at McDonald’s with the MEAN kid!

I saw your kid hit my kid!

No, I’m not mad or annoyed with you or your mean kid. Your kid is 2, mine is 4. I can see that you are worried and paranoid that something will happen, or someone will judge you. Stop it! You are working your ass off! I see you constantly watching him, and making sure he is okay.

I can relate.

All new moms go through that phase of constant worry. No sleep, not enough water, way too much caffeine. You are doing a great job, so don’t even worry about it! More moms need to be like you! Patience and peace come with time. Then there will be more chaos, but you will be able to handle it like a boss!

Dont mess with the mama bear!

What you did right

Here is the glorious thing about parenting. Most people are doing it right. You have to be a really terrible person to get it wrong. There are so many different types of parenting, and no matter how good you are, your kid is still going to have their own personality.  I was impressed that you didn’t just sit there and let it happen. You jumped up, grabbed him, and asked my son if he was okay. You also explain in such a sweet, but stern way, the reason why it’s not nice to hit. Then, you even apologized to me! Which was not needed.

You are doing such a great job!

Like I said before, there are so many ways that situation could have gone worse. I want to thank you for being an awesome mom to that adorable 2-year-old! You keep doing what you are doing and don’t even worry about anyone else!

    This is so awesome! Such a positive perspective you have on this situation. As much credit as you give to the “McDonalds mom” I would like to give you credit too, from one momma to another. You could have easily gotten upset with the other mom and judged her and her child for this behavior and instead you chose to see the good in her as a mother and a person and commend her for doing such a good job. This is just so awesome and I wish more momma bears out there could have this positive, supportive mindset!

    From one momma bear to another.
