Today I picked my little darling from after school care and noticed another mom taxi. Nothing special except for the 5 hundred sports decals plastered all over the back windows. This mom obviously had 3 children name Maddie, Schuyler, and some other name that isn't really relevant. They all played at least 5 different sports. Now I'm all about supporting your kids sporting by buying these decals, but my thoughts are do you really want to plaster your kids name all over for the world to see? I personally just don't like the idea of "strangers" being able to see what my kids name is and then possibly call them by name to make my kids think that this stranger knows my kid, simply because they said their name. I'm just kind of paranoid about things like that.
The other obvious thing was the spelling of Schuyler. I have weird issues about people spelling their kids names in some chic hip way. I honestly think it's stupid. You might remember this post about my rant on school safety. I of course intentionally spelled the kids names goofy cause it is one of my pet peeves. If you do spell your kids name uniquely please forgive me I mean no harm, I'm really just witchy today. Now I assume this kids name is pronounced "Skyler" but then maybe it is Shcuyler like Bueller? The spelling on this kids name is what set me over the edge and inspired this post.
As if the plastered sports decals was not enough, their youngest child whom I assume is maybe 5 earliest a late 4, was decked in her soccer gear and was sucking on a binki. Again, I have absolutely no problem with giving your BABY a binki. I admit I was a "binki bitch" myself and darn proud of it. I'd do anything to
There I feel so much better now. Thanks again ya'll for enduring my rage.
